Vuilleumier Freres VF-250/35
& VF-250 Lathes
A superbly-built, high-class French-made lathe the Vuilleumier Freres VF250/35 incorporated a number of advanced features and fine detailing - including a clever metric thread-dial indicator that coped with all pitches without the need to engage alternative gears.
The lathe was also built as an earlier version (shown towards the bottom of the page), the VF250 with rounded styling, a sloping face to the headstock; the speed range was not as wide as the 250/35 versions and there were also some minor control differences.
If you have a machine tool made by this company, or any sales or technical literature, the writer would be pleased to hear from you.
