A rare Willson Capstan Slant-Bed with a bed-mounted capstan unit and fitted as standard with a 2-speed motor that gave speeds of 9, 39, 78, 715 and 1430 rpm.. A 1.5-inch diameter capacity lever-action collet closer was mounted on the headstock spindle nose. The capstan unit had a maximum stroke of 7-inches and its turret accepted tooling with 1.25-inch diameter shanks.

The Hydraulic-copying unit was unusual in having the sample carrier mounted beneath an elevated  steel bar fastened between the headstock and tailstock ends of the bed
