For Sale
Small TIMBRELL & WRIGHT Capstan Lathe

For Sale: a well set-up, beautifully finished and interesting Timbrell & Wright 3/8" capacity capstan lathe. The beautifully-made headstock has white-metal bearings with a spindle to take dead-length collets and is fitted with an improved Swiss Petermann closing spool, closing lever and yoke - all engineered by myself decades ago. The forming and cut-off slide has front and back limit stops and the 6-station capstan head is fitted with automatic, lever-operated indexing and a screw stop. The turret has been re-enforced and re-bored to take the more common 15mm shank tooling.  Originally driven at just one speed, an improved countershaft and drive system has been engineered with flat and V-belts providing following rotations: forward right-hand at low speed for threading; backwards and high speed threading off and all subsequent operations (all can be demonstrated). The lathe sits on a heavy cast-iron stand and chip tray, is fitted with a gravity drained coolant tank and currently tooled for 6BA hex. sets--but can be set up for a variety of jobs making small parts by the dozen. Only selling because of advancing years. Located in a domestic workshop near Wolverhampton. £575 Phone: 01902-700164
