Colchester Bantam Mk1 Lathe


It has a 6mm pitch leadscrew.


  • 2016-10-26 - Lathe delivered
  • 2016-10-31 - Spindle oil changed (~3L) & gearbox oil filled (~1.5L). Gearbox oil was almost empty so may need to monitor/check for wear. The oil was 'Hydraulic oil ISO 32' from Westway Lubricants (sold as an equivalent to Shell Tellus 27).
