Lloyd Wood Lathe

Unknown until an example came to light in England during 2017, the Lloyd wood lathe appears to have been manufactured by the long defunct T.L Lloyd Ltd. An essentially simple machine, it employed - like the well-known Coronet wood lathes - a round bed, though in this case a tube rather than a solid steel bar. Of around 5-inch centre height and admitting perhaps 36 inches between centres, the lathe had a spindle threaded at both ends, presumably to allow, at the left-hand end, a bowl-turning rest to be employed. However, although the lathe as shown has been fitted with a belt guard that would stop this happening, it seems that the headstock was intended to swivel on its supporting foot - and so the possibility exists that a front-mounted bowl rest might also have been available.
Surviving with the machine was a small saw table with a fastening that allowed it to be clamped to the bed.
