Beling & Lbke Milling Machines
and Cylindrical Grinders

Beling & Lbke Home Page

In addition to lathes Beling & Lbke also make a range of utterly conventional small horizontal milling machine - and a range of beautifully constructed and ingenious miniature cylindrical grinders. The latter were notable for the table drive system - illustrated by cross-sectional drawing at the bottom of this page - that employed steel bands passing over a heart-shaped curve. With this system it was possible for the operator to vary the table stroke whilst the machine was running.
If you have a Beling & Lbke machine tool of any kind, or further information about the company, the writer would be pleased to hear from you.

A catalogue page from the period 1900 to 1914 showing a simple plain-turning lathe (available with centre heights of 105, 125 and 155 mm and with a self-contained drive system) and a small vertical milling machine with the benefit of quill feed to the head.

Beling & Lbke horizontal milling machine - with a robust dovetail overarm and power feed to the table - from the late 1930s.

Circa 1915: - a small cylindrical grinder on a self-contained, motorised stand
This miniature machine was not dissimilar to the Jones & Shipman Type 520
