Nice photo of the Hercus lathe as used on the workshop. This lathe has been relocated off the workshop platform to a 'stand alone' position. I notice the operator has been busy cutting the cartridge casing off 105mm shells leaving just the casing base and primer tube. There are a few on the floor at his feet. Anyone know what that is about?

Also notice the small 'draws'? (on their sides) the lathe is sitting on. They appear to be a Land Rover going by the latch on each. I notice that they are the same 'draws' as shown on the other photo. It doesn't look right that they are sitting on their side. Were they originally 'draws' or are they simply mountings for the lathe to sit on? The latch confuses me.

Hi Stuart,

Thanks for the pic.
