Tekno "Langes Legetųj" Toy Machine Tools
Made during the 1950s, around 150 mm long and made of ZAMAC, this "toy" lathe looks like a Tekno No 707 - also made by "Langes Legetųj" (in Denmark) under license from the parent company and produced both with and without a name plate. It appears that two versions may have been made: one with a proper compound slide rest with full-circle handwheels and the other with just a cross slide.
Tekno also produced a range of other machines to compliment model railway layouts and similar installations; these included a shaper, saw bench, tilt and reciprocating hammers, double-ended grinder, wet-wheel grinder, an overhead countershaft drive system, the No. 709 horizontal milling machine, a pillar drill and a slotter.
If any reader has additional pictures of Tekno items the writer would be interested to hear from you..
