From the 1940s until the late 1970s the Sheldon name was used exclusively on the Company's smaller lathes which, during the 1950s, was consolidated into the following types: 10.125' swing (Series L and XL) with 3/4' collet capacity 10.125' swing (Series XL) with 1' collet capacity 11.25' swing (Series S) with 1' collet capacity 13.125' swing (Series M) with 1' collet capacity The letters 'E' or 'U' before the Series letter indicated the type of drive system fitted (see below), whilst numerals after a Series letter showed the bed length. The letters 'P' or 'B' after the bed length told whether the lathe was mounted on a simple but heavy cast-iron pedestal stand, or a full cabinet with integral chip tray and Q indicated the fitment of a 'quick-change' (i.e. Norton-type) screwcutting and feeds gearbox in place of changewheels.
