Catalogue cover for the Mk. 1 Raglan Little John - a publication harder to find than the lathe itself
An unusually fine and original Little John M. 1. This model was unusual in having a roller-bearing spindle but with bearings held in place by the large, rounded-top, bolt-down cover. On the Mk. 2 a significant increase in rigidity was achieved by moving to a conventional, one-piece headstock casting.
Changewheel cover removed. Note the cast-iron bracket supporting the variable-speed drive control lever. The cut out in the headstock cover allowed access to the pin that had to be pulled out before the backgear could be engaged.
