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. The motor was a Rmco type and the finish either a pale grey-green hammer effect, or plain grey.

Of course, collectors have moved into the market and emfo early black-finish machines – and most of the accessories from any year – are very sought after and command high prices. The lathe shows very little use as there is little to no scarring on set screws. 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.

Nothing had broken or e,co out and he was entirely delighted with it. While the Rowic appears to have been so well made – and so similar to the original – that it may well have been manufactured using replicas of the proper factory dies, the other two, from countries under communist control at the time, were significantly different. The first version of the W appears to have been based on a mid to late Mk. The first kind splined drive-bar used to move the cartridge was fitted with a very short, plain handle but later a black knob was added and finally the handle retaining the ballwas lengthened.

Failure of Unimat motors is very common and the causes manifold. See each listing for international shipping options and costs. Looks like it may have only been used one or two times.


It is likely that only two motors were used on this model: American machines all appear to have been delivered in a rather splendid fitted wooden box – while European customers, apart from those sold during the mid to late s, had to be content with finest-quality cardboard.

As an example of the confusion that reigned an original, unused lathe from has been found fitted with watt rpm motor but accompanied by a 3rd edition Operator’s Manual stating that a 65 Watt, rpm unit was fitted.

Although tiny, it was perfectly capable xl decent work, available with a wide range of accessories and was light enough to be lifted on and off the workbench with one strong hand. This tool article is a stub. This had a big, round-shaped induction motor with matching wrapper paint, a small red name plate mounted low down on ekco sloping face of the headstock, green paint and die-cast hand wheels with the wasp-tail handles.

Most of the first boxes had nicely bevelled vertical corners, until at some point during SL productionthis was stopped, probably as an economy measure. To discover which model you have found, invert the machine and look at the underside of the bed: However, one measured has been discovered to have an OD 0. The “pea-green”, pre Emco brochure shows just such a machine, with the larger Dutch motor: 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.

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 unimatt of the armature, is faulty. At around this time Emco introduced the Model W, a simplified “Woodworking” version bereft of carriage and feed-screw.

Arranged by the simple and effective means of splitting the right-hand half of the casting from front to back, the cross-slide clamp used an M6 socket -headed screw set positioned at the front between feed screw and the right-hand 8 mm-diameter cross slide bar to squeeze the parts together.

The use of dies enabled the appearance of the base to be cleaned up somewhat and allowed emdo almost full-length, vertical flat face to be used. 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.

When the faces were correctly aligned by using the tailstock method previously outlined it was possible to insert into the slot a small “setting piece” – a disc washer given by the handbook as being 0.

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, uimat the left-hand end of the cartridge by an M nut, the adjustment of which was used to set the bearing pre-load. The vertical pillar was The cross slide followed the same design and, just like the English Drummond Little Goliath of 25 years earlier, ran on two bars instead of conventional machined ways.

Owners have seen this phenomena exhibited in a Unimat left in the vertical mode for many years where the hole in the base was so deformed that the column was no longer truly vertical. Also shop in Also shop in.
