Welcome to the Colchester Group! This site is an owners club for Colchester Lathe's, owners and users of other makes of lathe are of course also very welcome. The Colchester Lathe Company was first established in 1887, with the first geared head machines produced in 1907. Colchester’s production hay-days were from the late 40s/50s/60s when the company was then Europe’s largest lathe manufacture producing thousands of machines for workshops and technical collages, Models like, Chipmasters, Student & Master, Triumphs, and later with Bantams and later still, the newer Colts, therefore all models will be supported on this site. With this in mind, there must be many thousands of machines in workshops all over, still producing good work! so to all Colchester owners spread the word that the group is up and running. Please place any spares accessories for Sale and Wanted items, also Hints & tips on the site too, any advice that you may like to give to fellow members. Lastly, why not post any pictures of your machine, or items made on them, I'm sure other Colchester users would like you to share them, also please feel free to use the Database for Sales & Wanted items.
