Ward Capstan Lathe No. 1A


This machine was the first of the dual capability machines to be able to take flat belt drive or use the integral motor. The machine is conventional in drive arrangements otherwise.

Ward 1A Capstan Lathe

The capacity is the same as the No.1 ungeared lathe, ie: 1" through the headstock and bar feed. The "Swing Forward" bar feed was standard fitting by the time this machine was introduced. The turret was to remain the same pattern for most of the Ward range for the rest of their production days.
