• WTH HAPPENED TO H-M?

    After accidentally deleting a folder, we asked our web host for a backup. As nearly as we can figure, the 1/23 backup did not contain any attachments (over 250000 or avatars for our members). We then asked them for a backup to January 1, 2020, and THAT backup had no attachments or avatars, etc. Their backups were incomplete apparently, and overwrote our files with empty attachment files. We are very sorry for this. We are doing everything and anything we can to right this. HM

Can anyone identify the maker this very small cross slide?

Like the title says, what do I have? I'm thinking of hanging it from the mirror in my car...

Since I am designing a clockmakers lathe as a future project, could you take a few more shots of it from different angles? I'd appreciate it.

No problem. If you need any more, or dimensions just reply here and I'll see it.

Thanks

I know this is a old post but it looks like it could be from a Lorch KD 50 Lathe, if you haven't already figured it out.

I was just wondering if you received any info on your cross slide. I am going slowly into the clock or horology end of work. The cross slide is a home made piece, I would like to see some dimensions if you would.

Old thread with my three cents. Yes, it definitely looks homemade. If anyone is looking for a cross slide I would consider one of the three Levin versions, standard, standard 3 tear or the heavy duty. You want a nice smooth action when turning the handle(s). The Levins have ball bearing guided feed screws. I’m not that in love with how the cross slide is attached and referenced, however. But that is how it is. I’m also not a fan of the Unimat 3. But it’s carriage set-up is far more beneficial than a typical watchmaker lathe detachable cross slide. And that lathe can make small parts too…Dave
