Can anyone tell me how I can source diagrams etc that give the names and application of lathe accessories?
Perhaps there are past threads.....how would I find them?

Thankyou in advance for any assistance!

Ozzy,

De Carle's "The Watchmakers Lathe" or Perkins' "The Modern Watchmakers Lathe And How To Use It" have pictures and descriptions of any accessory you could think of.

Online, you could browse through Tony Griffith's www.lathes.co.uk that often has accessories pictured if you know the name of your lathe.
If your German is good, try http://www.s1p.de/05_w/wzg/fr_kat_w.html
where Juergen Pahlow has a huge collection of Lorch lathes and accessories brochures online.

Aside from Per's excellent recommendations 2 other books (amongst many others) also come to mind:

"The Watchmaker's Lathe" by Ward Goodrich
"Practical Benchwork for Horologists" by Louis Levin and Samuel Levin
