Headstock spindle bore takes. In comparison with later machines the drive pulleys exhibited several significant differences: Constructed as a one piece casting, the first tailstock had a distinctive spindle-retaining nut, just inboard of the handwheel, and a very pronounced rearward cantilever to maximize the machine’s limited between-centres’ capacity.

Apart from the very first examples, American-market machines were fitted with motors of a different design and size to those in Europe and possibly the rest of the world. Uinmat heavier base, having a much higher zinc content hence the weightmeant that it could be subjected to “plastic cold flow” if left under constant stress.

It is likely that the Mk. Motors were fitted with either plain bronze or ball bearings with, in unimay, those for Europe with voltages aboveusing ball races and most American-market U90s with plain bearings – though unnimat exception was the first 40 Watt motor that used ball-races.

This unit contains three small capacitors within the single casing and it is not unknown for one to have short circuited to earth internally. The original belts were in the form of coiled-steel wire “springs”, not an ideal material to run against aluminium.


In the final years of production the green steel cased motor returned and the hand wheels were now made of plastic. The aim had been to allow its use as a metal or wood lathe, miller, drill press, polisher, grinder, jig saw, saw bench, wood planer or jointer, sander or even – with the headstock detached from the bed and sp with a grip – as a hand drill.

Again, with over-lapping production, it possible that these handwheels unimatt have been seen first on the last examples of the previous emcoo.

The uses of these machines are as unlimited as the skill and imagination of the operator given the wealth of accessories available. Learn more – opens in a new window or tab. The earliest known sectional drawing of the headstock, dated The motor was a U90 type and the finish either a pale grey-green hammer effect, or plain grey.

The earliest discovered European mention of the lathe was in the February edition of the popular English magazine ” Practical Mechanics ” – an early German-language of the full catalogue is here.

Although the 2 and 2A had a carriage lock at the back the cross slide generally did not – that improvement appearing as standard on the 2B.

However, before fitting a remotely mounted sewing-machine motor as a replacement it is worthwhile dismantling the faulty unit and checking to see if the delta capacitor for commutator suppression buried inside the motor casing behind the rear of the armature, is faulty.

We will do uunimat best to help you. All these years I over looked that. Of all the elastometers available for power transmission, this material is the best suited and most widely used. It may be that an earlier model was advertised in – but a search by the writer’s Ejco contacts through hobby literature of that year has drawn a blank – hence this is likely to have been not just the first American, but the first ever advertisement for the Unimat Continued: It may be that an earlier model was advertised in – but a search by the writer’s German contacts through hobby literature of that year has drawn a blank.
