Oliver 6-inch centre height by 42 inches-between-centres Model 92 - the smallest and simplest wood-turning lathe in the range. The lathe bed was stepped up in front of the spindle, giving a small extra capacity in the resulting gap.
Pattern Makers' 8-inch centre height by 72 inches-between-centres wood-turning lathe was fitted with a rack-feed carriage surmounted by a compound slide rest for accurate wood and light-duty metal turning.
This two-and-a-half ton lathe was designed to allow the turning of ordinary work between centres and also to accommodate very large and long cylindrical patterns. Originally part of the Gill Company product line, this machine was added to Oliver's catalogue in January, 1951. The Model 94 could also be fitted with a rack-driven carriage assembly and compound slide rest (with a cross feed of 4 inches) - giving the machine the capacity to perform very accurate wood turning on patterns, or handle light-duty metal turning.
This medium-size machine was unusual for a wood lathe in being fitted with a 9-inch wide, 28-inch diameter capacity detachable gap bed and V ways.
