COMPLETE LATHES, DESCRIPTIONS ONE TO EIGHTEEN.

The greater number of the Lathes Descriptions, One to Eighteen, are specified as of five-inch center, and which Lathes have bearers 3 feet 6 inches long. Lathes for amateurs and others, are sometimes also made as small as of 3 inch center, and 2 feet 6 inches in length of bearers; and at other times as large as of 7-inch center, and 7 feet in length of bearers. Lathes of these various sizes are also made with frames either of wood or iron.

s.

d.

The 5-inch center lathes, or those of medium size, are however the most generally convenient for amateurs, as they are sufficiently large for the largest pieces of ivory and hardwood commonly met with; and they are also sufficiently large to allow a proportionate degree of strength in the numerous additional apparatus; without on the other hand, becoming from excessive size either unwieldy or inconvenient, as respects the friction of their moving parts.

For occasional purposes, the range of the 5-inch lathe may be increased about one-half as to diameter, by lifting pieces, No. 1631, or about twofold as to length, by lengthening bars, No. 1632; and the 5-inch lathes are also made with iron bearers, exceeding the customary length of 3 feet 6 inches.

In selecting Turning Machinery, many amateurs prefer to begin with a small outfit, and gradually to extend it by successive additions of apparatus. Much of the Turning Machinery is constructed with the object of facilitating this, which may be called the accumulative method; as most of the lathes may be thus a vanced, to the condition of some of those higher up in the scale of completeness and price.

For example, it will be seen in the examination of the following descriptions, that the Lathe Description Three (18), may, by additions, be made equal to any of those not possessing iron bearers. The Lathe Description Five (35), may be converted into the most complete of those with beech-wood frames; and the Lathe Description Ten (60), may be rendered, by additions, equal or superior to the Lathe Description Eighteen, the most elaborate of those specified.

It is further to be observed that the Lathes of the different Descriptions, One to Eighteen, will in any case be modified to the extent that may be desired, by the addition, omission, or exchange of apparatus; the descriptions and particulars of which are more fully given in the subsequent pages on Detached Lathe Apparatus.

DETACHED PARTS OF LATHE APPARATUS.

To suit the convenience of different Amateurs, many of the detached parte of Lathe Apparatus are made of various forme and constructions, some of which are very complete and elaborately finished, and others are leu complete and mora plainly finished, hut are nevertheless of good, sound, and useful character. The further particulars of these differences will be given an applicatton.

Frrquent disappointments have been experienced by Amateurs, particularly those resident in foreign countries, from H. and Co. being unable satisfactorily to supply some of the Detached parts of Lathe Apparatus that may be written for, on account of the necessity of such Additional Apparatus being fitted to the neighbouring potts of the Turning Machinery, with which they are required to be associated.

Much of the inconvenience has been from time to time swept away, by modifications introduced in several construction, in order to

And to prevent, so far as possible, misapprehension and disappointment, each of the Detached parts of Lathe Apparatus, Nos. 1519 to 1643, is followed by a letter of reference, intended to direct attention to one of the following notes: -

A. - These Apparatus may be supplied independently of the corresponding parts, and without apprehension of disagreement.

B. - These Apparatus may be supplied independently, but a trifling and unimportant risk is then incurred of their disagreement; but which disagreement may, in most cases, be corrected by the Amateur himself.

C. - These Apparatus can be supplied, provided certain measurements and particulars are previously transmitted.

D. - These Apparatus can be supplied, in a modified and nearly finished state, together with instructions as to how the Amateur may complete and adapt them himself.

E. - These Apparatus, as at present constructed, cannot be supplied, or at any rate, cannot be supplied in a satisfactory manner, unless the neighbouring parts of the Turning Machinery, with which they are to be used, are transmitted to H. and Co., to enable the new work to be fitted.
