  Chipmaster (and Bantam) apron

Chipmaster Screwcutting Gearbox. Lathes with English threading used a different gearbox to those fitted with Metric screwcutting (below); the English box can be recognised by its sliding lever control (as above) the metric box was the same unit as used on the Bantam and had a joy-stick selector (see below). Some "all-metric" Chipmaster lathes carried the identification "Continental".
Both the English and metric gearbox could generate, with appropriate translation changewheels, the other type of thread.

Chipmaster "Continental" metric screwcutting gearbox with joy-stick control of a type as also used on the Bantam model.
