- My ML7 is approaching its 50st anniversary, and still going strong.
Not only turning, but milling, keyway cutting, and even gun barrel
rifling have been done on it!
Perfect manuals are "The amateur' Lathe" by L.H.Sparey, and "Myford
Series 7 Manual" by Ian Bradley. Still obtainable from Camden,
http://www.camdenmin.co.uk . Not cheap but very good!
