This is one of my most recent ‘mono colour’ models. It came out far larger than I first thought but it does work well and features a real lathe tool mounted in the ‘tool post’.
The long green ram moves to and fro with a slow forward cutting stroke and a more rapid return stroke. The mechanism that does this is visible behind a hinged door to the rear of the machine. The length of the stroke can also be adjusted as well. Two more three speed pulleys can be seen forming the motor drive.
