Early mechanism used for indexing the carriage along the bed

2-speed gear arrangement inside the headstock

View inside the headstock showing the 2-speed gear and dog-clutch assembly


Early-pattern dog clutch - the engagement leaver appears to have been supported in a bolt-on housing

The full nut that engaged with the leadscrew was in cast iron

Plan view of the compound slide assembly

The Whitworth-form cross and top-feed screws were left entirely unprotected

Final design of tailstock with much-improved spindle

Early tailstock. The spindle was nothing more than a length of threaded rod that terminated in a short plain section with a No. 1 Morse taper. A proper eccentric clamp and permanently-attached hand lever locked the unit to the bed
