Boxford AUD Lathe Photo Essay
Boxford Home Page  Boxford Models Page  South Bend Copies

A late-model Boxford Mk. 3 AUD from the 1980s. Still in its original cream and brown paint this 5-inch centre height AUD spent its early years in a school keeping the craft teacher's aging Vauxhall Viva on the road - before being promoted to a more active life in private ownership. With an entrenched Heath and Safety neurosis gripping all in education by the throat - and effectively strangling proper craft training - these lathes have often had little or no use and make an excellent buy.
