Very nice workmanship Graham. That is certainly going to be a time piece to be proud of.

Hi All
2 Axis Colchester Master Lathe which can be converted to a 4 axis cnc mill by swapping the toolpost with a vertical side and then adding a rotary table if required.
Drawn with autocad then coordinates used to manually create program.
All parts have been created this way.

Hi Damianp
I used 1.6mm phosphor bronze multi stranded wire.
The nearest I can find now is 1.4mm from http://www.johnwardle.co.uk.
OR 1.5MM from http://www.clockmaking-brass.co.uk/miscellaneous_items%202.htmL
Best of luck.
Graham
