Is there a bed drawing available somewhere that shows what the mounting points are meant to be like - I can't find a drawing number for this bed in the drawings list - although that for the 280VS is ML100/402 - are the beds the same?
The bed drawings are 'interesting' to find a match for a particular lathe model or to see how a particular feature fitted, as many variants were done under different revisions of the same drawing number. So they need to be read in conjunction with the relevant change notes as listed in their change columns.
If the 280VS list is showing an ML- number for the bed, then yes it was carried over from the 5" models.
Also - is the drawing set for the copying/taper turning attachment known to exist anywhere? I guess that's the ML126/1 - ML126/16 series....
Yes it does.
I'll send the photo I have of ML126 to Admin and see if he can reduce the file size whilst keeping the detail readable.
I also have photos of a few of the detail drawings - so if anyone wants something in particular please ask.
