You are viewing a used Smart and Brown Model 1024 Precision Toolroom Lathe

Smart & Brown 1024 5.5" x 24" toolroom lathe was, and still is, a sought-after machine. It was manufactured to a very high standard - and not down to a price, which, as a result, was considerable. On the original Mk. 1 twelve spindle speeds were available, from 30 to 2500 rpm, with the headstock pulley running in its own ball journal bearings concentric with, but independently of, the main headstock spindle. A 3-speed, 3-phase motor rated 1/1.5/2 H.P. was located in the base and drove upwards to a 2-speed gearbox that incorporated a multi-disc friction clutch to smooth out speed changes. The speed-change gearbox was operated by a lever and the settings could be altered without having to move a belt  from pulley to pulley. 
With a Type D1-4" nose and running in SKF type N.N.30.K double-row cylindrical roller bearings the heat-treated spindle was bored 1
1/4" and accepted collets up to 1" in capacity. Filtered oil was pumped automatically to the headstock, speed-change and screwcutting gearboxes while the apron was lubricated by a small pump contained within its base that was activated by the sliding action of the carriage assembly. 
Constructed from a high-grade nickel iron and flame hardened, the lathe bed was provided with what the designers considered the best combination of V and flat surfaces to locate and maintain the relative positions the headstock, carriage and tailstock over a very long service life. To help rigidity and vibration absorption the lathe was mounted on a cast-iron base of great weight.
