Taylor Model 626 Trimming and Beading Lathe. This lathe was designed for finishing off products that had been stamped out in a "Drawing Press". When the job was removed from the press an uneven flange of waste material was left around the periphery that needed to be cut off; following that operation the lathe could be used with another tool to curl over the newly-trimmed edge whilst simultaneously binding in a length of wire to stiffen it.

Taylor Rolling Lathe Model 633 of the 1920s. This machine was intended for smoothing out the wrinkles often left in work that had been through a Drawing Press.
Turned with enough energy the large, heavy handwheels of the compound slide rest enabled a degree of "flywheel effect" to be built up so aiding the evening-out process.

Taylor Model 1417 circa 1945. The first Beading and Trimming lathe to be mounted on a self-contained underdrive stand.

Taylor Rolling Lathe - 1950s to the 1970s - heavy plinths under both headstock and tailstock ends of the bed and an improved drive system - but the unique compound slide rest remained unchanged.

Taylor Model 1568 Trimming & Beading lathe. This adaptation of the spinning lathe was designed for finishing off products that had been stamped out in a "Drawing Press". When the job was removed from the press an uneven flange of waste material was left around the periphery that needed to be cut off; following that operation it was usual to curl over the clean edge to form a bead - sometimes with a wire insert - to stiffen it.
