Hiab - merry go round - COLCHESTER STUDENT HEADSTOCK ADJUSTMENT | Model Engineer


As far as I know, a lorry is the smallest with the required power in the tail lift for your lathe. If you consider a Hiab, make sure it has sufficient outreach for your needs. You will still need the pallet truck and/or engine hoist. The pallet truck is not long enough to support the weight of the lathe if loaded lengthways. The engine hoist, lifting from the screw in eye (use a certified eye) has barely sufficient height to clear the bottom frame of the hoist. Using a sling round the bed would probably result in even less lifting height.

My feet use M20 x threaded bar which is readlily available and since this thread is used in automotive applications, sets of taps are also easy to find and fairly cheap.
