For Sale: TOS MN80 High-precision Lathe

SOLD: TOS MN80 high-precision screwcutting lathe. 3" x 12" (90 mm  x 160 mm) mounted on the maker's stand with beautifully-fitted accessory storage, raiser blocks, chip tray and mounted on casters. The lathe has a hardened bed and fitted with an ingenious, very fine feed to the carriage through a Lorch-like planetary gearing. Driven by a 1-phase to 3-phase inverter that gives infinitely variable-speed drive (the original speeds spanned 150 to 2000 r.p.m. but these are now much faster and a lot slower). Speed control is by a dial with an emergency stop button. The UK-market MN80 was supplied with a vast range of equipment, all shown in the pictures; these include a dividing attachment on its own base, a Swiss Mulitfix quick-set toolpost, milling slide, wire collets, cone collets, fir-tree collets, 3-jaw chuck, 4-jaw self-centring chucks, faceplate-cum-independent 4-jaw chuck, fixed and travelling steadies, faceplate with T-slots and tapped holes, catchplate, spare chuck backplate, two tailstock rotating centres, four tailstock chucks, tailstock-mounted (No. 1 Morse taper) plain drilling pad, built-in dial-thread indicator, two hand T-rests, Morse centres, a set of screwcutting changewheels, a tin of touch-up paint and the maker's Operation Manual.  £2500 Details of TOD MN80 lathes here
