EMCO-UNIMAT Model SL Operating Manual

The handwheels, now larger at mm in diameter, were made slightly thinner and given a knurled rim and a locking nut on the end of their feedscrew, instead of through the wheel’s boss. Be sure to use. Image not available Photos not available for this variation. The motor was a U90 type and the finish either a pale grey-green hammer effect, or hnimat grey.

The hole leads to a felt washer that wicks just oil, less any dirt, into emck sintered-bronze bearings. UK-market badge from the Elliott era. Although tiny, it was perfectly capable of decent work, available with a wide range of accessories and was light enough to be lifted on emcco off the workbench with one strong hand. Although at first the carriage had no form of lock, later models were given a clamp bolt at the rear that also acted as a form of adjustment to the sliding fit.

Again, with over-lapping production, it possible that these handwheels may have been seen first on the last examples of the previous type. In the s and s very few European countries used the same voltage for their domestic supplies and Emco had to supply a wide range of motors to cover every possibility – new examples of which are still being discovered.

See the pictures for an idea emoc the shape and condition of this item. The first example used a crude system, similar to that employed in a bicycle hub, with crowded loose balls contained between cones with the single-groove drive pulley held in place overhung, at the left-hand end of the cartridge by an M nut, the adjustment of which was used to set the bearing pre-load.

This page was last updated on: Manua an almost continuous series of small and larger changes altered many details of the lathe’s construction and appearance, the general arrangement of all models was identical: These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.

The feed-screws on these models were changed to a unomat thread, so allowing a “normal” feel – where turning the screw to the right resulted in a deeper cut; a far better arrangement manuap the “cack-handed” originals mabual did the opposite. The first kind splined drive-bar used to move the cartridge mmanual fitted with a very short, plain handle but later a black knob was added and finally the handle retaining the ballwas lengthened.

An examination of the castings used on early lathes show them to have an inferior finish to later ones, though no doubt their material quality was entirely satisfactory.

A pin, screwed in through the left-hand face of the casting, engaged against the cone, and drew the unlmat down and locked it in place.

The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects. The first version of the W appears to have been based on a mid to late Mk. All shipments will be fully insured and we combine your shipments when practical. There was also a slight bevelling of the upper corners of the headstock support – an alteration that would be reflected in the forthcoming die-cast design – and the headstock itself may also have been increased in size slightly but with corners of a tighter radius measurements are awaited and its milling post-retaining pin moved to a position parallel to the spindle cartridge.

We have a large library thousands of manuals. This had a big, round-shaped induction motor with matching wrapper paint, a small red name plate mounted low down on the sloping face of the headstock, green paint and die-cast hand wheels with the wasp-tail handles.

Realising that one 6 mm screw clamping the casting to the slide bar was entirely adequate, Emco did not persist with this modification. See terms – opens in a new window or tab. If you are unsure which bearings your motor has, examine the end of the shaft, it’s sometimes possible to see the bronze ring of the plain-bearing type.

Manufactured in fully-machined cast aluminium they had deep ‘V’ grooves and were mounted in the reverse direction and with the pair used on the motor and idler stud at mmlarger in diameter.

Colours, as ever, pose a problem and instead of a single, standard finish, examples have been found in crackle-black, a light plain flat grey and others in either silver-blue or silver grey – with the latter two in a “hammer-effect” paint. Sign in to check out Check out as guest.

Subject to credit approval. That section of the base on which the headstock fitted was rectangular in shape, with a flat front, and bored to accept a large “inverted-cone” that allowed the headstock to be rotated or quickly detached.

The fellow I bought it from assured me they were easy to find, maybe twenty years ago this was true. The change of material enabled the rate of production to be greatly increased and, by eliminating some machining operations the finish of the castings was equal to a ground surface costs reduced. There were several serious oversights on this first model including a lack of provision to lock either the saddle or the cross slide to their respective bars and feed-screws with a ‘right-hand” thread’ – giving that annoyingly counterintuitive situation where turning a handle to the right produced a moment towards, instead of away from, the operator.

The crude pictures accompanying the text showed not the very first model, but the slightly modified Mk.
