Register of known Holtzapffel Lathes 

The Pedigree of Holtzapffel Lathes by Warren Ogden was published in 1987 and while this remains a useful source of information, much has changed since then.  This project is an attempt to produce and maintain a Register of known Holtzapffel Lathes and, where possible, to include within it photographs of the lathes and any rare or important accessories that remain with them.

The identities of some well-known past owners are shown in the Register as 'ex-name' but current owners are not named.  The country of domicile is listed where known.

A private list of last known owners will be maintained by me (the Webmaster) who undertakes not to disclose identities or contact details without their prior consent.  Should anyone wish to contact an owner, the Webmaster will forward a message and the owner may then decide whether, or not, to respond.  In the event of incapacity, the Webmaster has left instructions for the private list to be passed to the President of the Society of Ornamental Turners under the same conditions of confidentiality.

As an extension to the Registers of Holtzapffel and Evans Lathes, there will be an illustrated inventory of certain important lathe outfits.  This commences now with a feature on the Tyntesfield Lathe, Holtz No.1890. To download this feature    -[click here]-

Thank you! - to those who have sent me details and photographs of their Holtzapffel Lathes for the Register.  If yours is not shown please send me a photo.
