Covmac Lathe rebuild slideshow - hermetic - 10-06-2019

Hi guys, here is a link to the rebuild of my other lathe, a 13" geared head Covmac, made during WW2, not in Coventry, but in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, UK, by P&C Garnett, a textile machine manufacturer, as war work. I would be interested to know if any Covmac lathes made it to the USA, because although Covmac machinery for making nuts and bolts turns up all over the world, the lathes seem to only exist in the UK., Hope you enloy it!

Thanks EdK, I really enjoyed doing it, and I hope that all my future rebuilds will be video rather than slideshow, I am going through a backlog of pics I took over the last few years, but the new stuff is going to be recorded as I do it. Thanks for the kind words!
