Hi everyone,
I'm on the scrounge.
Does anyone have a user manual or maintenance instructions for a Union Graduate lathe that they could scan and forward (if that is allowed)?
Many thanks,
K

Thanks to all for the suggestions for a Graduate manual. I have been looking on the web and have come up with this link

http://www.daltonsmachines.com/uploads/files/manuals/Graduate%20Variturn%20Wood%20Lathe%20Manual%20&%20Parts%20List.pdf

which gives information on the Variturn version of the lathe, but still very useful exploded diagrams.

It's also available on
http://ebookbrowse.com/graduate-varitur ... d202645322

but in a not-so-convenient format.

Another useful site is :-
http://www.search-document.com/pdf/1/ma ... lathe.html


which gives a load of sections including a Graduate manual with details on their sanding table and lampstand making attachments, also a 4 page article by Fred Holden on thread chasing, a 32 page article on tools and jigs and loads more. When you first visit the site it looks like 2 pages, but then a 3rd appears, etc and it goes on for over 20 pages that I have seen and there's probably more (I got fed up looking).

Mod Edit:- Link removed,
I hope this may be of use to turning colleagues.
