Tekno Toy Machine Tools

Made during the 1950s, around 150 mm long and made of aluminium, this "toy" lathe looks like a Tekno No 707 - also made by "Langes Legetųj" (in Denmark) under license from the parent company with the latter 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 including a shaper, saw bench, steam hammer,  and three other rather fine other items with better detailing:  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.


Tekno No. 709 Horizontal Milling Machine - just 50 mm wide

Tilt hammer

Slotting machine

The better of the two horizontal milling machines offered: this version is complete with a n arbor-supporting overarm and drop bracket


A rather crude approximation to a milling machine - this is the "stub" version and lacks the arbor-supporting overarm
