E.H.J. Anglon Plastic Turning Lathe


E.H.Jones of Colindale were once well-known English machine-tool merchants who sold and commissioned only better-quality items by makers such as Sigma, CVA, Boley, Lorch, Leinen, etc. Jones put their initial on many different kinds of machines, including this "Anglon" plastic turning lathe, circa 1949.
The centre height was just over 5" and the maximum capacity between the collet and toolslide 4.5". Two motors were available, a 0.75 h.p. running at 1400 r.p.m. that gave spindle speeds of  935, 1400 and 1840 rpm and a 0.75h.p., 2800 r.p.m. unit giving 1900, 2800 and 3750 r.p.m.
The lathe occupied a floor space of 5 feet by 2 feet 3 inches and weighed 4 cwt.
