Ward Capstan Lathes - Model 7 Prelector Turret Lathe

The No.7 Prelector capstan lathe offered all of the features of the smaller machines, but with additional features aimed at reducing operator fatigue, such as fully powered saddles and air chuck on the machine shown in the illustration. This size of machine was rarely used with a bar feed, although one was available with conventional auto chuck or collets.

The toolposts shown in the picture are fitted to use the overhead toolpost support. The intermediate saddle has a range of movement options, and power feeds are provided to both saddles, including the capstan saddle itself, allowing screwcutting from both saddles.
