T. & L. M. Milling Machine
T. & L.M. Precision Lathe   Other Precision Bench lathes


If the miller below is yours (or you have a simlar model) the writer would be very interested to hear from you.
Similar in size and build quality to the Swiss Mikron range of small horizontal millers, the T. & L.M. might possibly have been inspired by the likes of the American Ames, Stark and Pratt & Whitney models - both those companies, like T. & L.M., also being involved in the manufacture of high-quality plain-turning bench lathes. Although limited in its usefulness as a general-purpose miller, far from being abandoned as small vertical machines become more popular from the 1930s onwards, this type of machine always found a niche in the market with examples produced until the 1970s by such as German Rumag Company.
Not backgeared for slow speeds - as were some contemporary Tom Senior models - the T. & L.M. was very sturdily built and equipped with both screw and rapid action lever feed to the tables horizontal travel and also some form of bevel gear drive to elevate the knee.
