I do agree with flapdoodle, I worked at Herberts from 66 for just under 10 years. I recall the rushed effort trying to play catch up with NC machines. For a while I was transferred to the test bay (which for an apprentice was always a good gig) they were testing the 2M and 3M plugboard machines, my easy job was a nightmare as oil leaks were everywhere and a lot of the fittings were buried in the castings meaning to fix half the machine had to come apart. About 2 years later we went on a service call to a factory in Northern England to fix a 5A auto the shop was pretty much all Herbert machines, I noticed they had a 2M lathe, after fixing the 5A, I got talking to the shop foreman and asked him how he liked his 2M lathe. His comment was never worked right from day 1 and they could not even use it.
