Many thanks for the work you did on preparing the ad for my father's lathe. You are worth every penny of what you charge, and you can't often say that these days. I had 3 inquiries in a very short time after the ad appeared, and it finally went to a lovely Irish gentleman who came and picked it up and took it to Dublin. I also had a very serious inquiry from a West End production company who badly wanted it as a prop on stage in a soon to be seen production of Faust. However, my Irishman bought it first. Again many thanks for such a good job. Over 20 enquiries, and sold immediately without any hassle ! Mike.  I want to thank you for all the help you have given me. I could not have sold my machine without your excellent advice. Terence: Thanks, Tony Inundated with enquiries. This has to be the best way to sell equipment; I'll be recommending your site to others who want to sell machinery. Steve : After many enquiries including the USA and Canada I sold the Myford for the asking price: Thanks for your help - I will certainly use your site in the future. Alan   I purchased the 6" lathe in the USA from your sales page. Thanks for the site. I could not find anything in the US or anywhere else as good. R. Wren : I received 3 phone calls and the Colchester was sold last night to the first person to view for the full asking price. Jon. Found a very rare Boxford part thanks to your “Wanted Section” ! : Thank you for identifying all the parts and listing them. A wonderful service.  Hi Tony, just a quick email to let you know the Coronet Major I have for sale on your site (£650) is now sold. It is currently on its way to Spain to a very enthusiastic chap who was very keen to own it, paying full price and all shipping costs. Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent service and congratulate you on a fantastic website. Keep up the good work. Many, many thanks and kind regards. John

For Sale: Late-type Beichle Combined Universal, Die Milling and Boring Machine. It is with great regret, due to downsizing, that I offer this outstanding German machine   It is believed to be a toolroom-class Model WF2 - without doubt the finest built and most versatile milling machine I have ever had it is ideal for the discerning amateur or professional engineer. The T-slotted table 15" x 23" and mounted in the vertical plane while the milling head is set horizontally. The table, mounted on a very substantial shaft that passes through the main body on the left, is fitted with a large 90-tooth worm wheel at the opposite end that engages with a worm on the spindle of a permanently-fitted dividing head. With the adjustable worm in mesh compound dividing is possible using a dividing plates (3 are provided), sector arms and indent. Most divisions from 1 - 120 can be achieved (a table of divisions is supplied) and, by disengaging the worm, which is carried in the usual eccentric sleeve, simple direct dividing to give 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 can be used by means of an indent engaging with a 24- toothed wheel inside the casing. If ultra-fine dividing is needed, a special plate is fitted divided into 4 segments, each representing one degree with further subdivisions into 30 increments, each giving 2 minutes of arc - a total of  10,800 divisions. When disengaged from the dividing apparatus the table can be used as a rotary type, a large handwheel at the front of the machine being used as the table and its shafting are too heavy to be rotated by the dividing head arm (although for simple direct dividing it could be pulled round by hand - screwing in the detent then brings the table into correct position). Angular rotation of the table can be fixed at any position using the 1-degree graduated scale where the dovetailed piece carrying the slide (to which the table is fitted), fits onto the shaft in the main body. If more accurate settings are needed than can be obtained by eye the special angular dividing plate can be used. In addition to that rotary feature, the table can also be rotated on the slide and together they allow compound curves to be generated. Accurately re-zeroing of the table on its slide after rotation is achieved by a taper peg and re-zeroing the slide after rotation by setting the direct dividing to '24' on the division gear.
The slide carrying the table is fitted with a feedscrew and an adjustable inch-graduation micrometer collar which, when the table is set at zero degrees, is the vertical position. This zero position is also achieved using a locating taper peg as well as the linear scale as an initial guide. The facility of being able to rotate the table means that faces or slots at angles to each in the same plane can be milled if the change in direction is so that the centre of rotation of the table is also at the centre point of the end-mill. The zero position of the milling head, coinciding with the centre point of the table, is also accurately set using a taper peg. The milling head is fitted to what is, in effect, the top slide of a compound slide assembly, this being mounted on the rise and fall knee - all fitted with imperial micrometer dials. The head can be rotated on the topslide so that the spindle is either vertical or parallel to the table and correctly set in position by a dowel and clamped by bolts. The topslide itself can be rotated on the cross-slide - useful for drilling angular holes for instance - and the cross-slide can also be rotated on the knee so that the topslide and milling head move at an angle to the face of the table for milling faces at an angle to the face of the table. All linear travels are fitted with a linear scale as well as micrometer dials and have adjustable stops. The table's self-centring vice is located centrally by a spigot at the rear fitting into a hole with a locating dowel to ensure the jaws are parallel with the T-slots. In place of the table, a 3-jaw self-centring chuck can be fitted. The No. 4 Morse taper milling head has a top-mounted motor with drive by V-belts over a belt tensioning/relieving lever for easy changes and a spindle lock for changing tooling. Included is a variety of 4MT tooling, a Low-Vo light and a suds pump. I have fitted a simple gantry to help lifting the vice/chuck into place and that fits in the vertical coolant pipe but easily reconfigured if needed. I also fitted some RSJ's on the bottom which it sits on and which have cut-outs to allow pallet truck forks to fit - saves having to lift it or jack it up to get the forks underneath. All the motions work smoothly and there seems little wear in the slideways, many of which still have original scraper marks. 3-phase electrics but included is a "like-new" Transwave 2.2 kW converter. On the main body near the dividing head is a 'computer' that allows calculation of cutting speeds using cutter diameter and r.p.m. Apart from a few cosmetic blemishes the machine is in excellent overall condition. £3750 email: peter@smithurst.org Pictures of the Beichle miller for sale here and Details of Beichle machines here

For Sale: A rare and unusual Siome Covema TA2 combination machine offering boring, facing, turning and milling in excellent condition. I have had the machine for nearly 20 years.

The machine is basically a horizontal borer so has an adjustable boring head with both manual and power feeds, in and out. These adjustments can be made with the machine running - so allowing bore size and horizontal or facing cuts to be altered. The boring head is very substantial with two Tee slots along the length of the moving slide allowing flexible attachment of cutters. The whole headstock is on Vee ways allowing for vertical movement. Replace the boring head with a 3 or 4-jaw chuck and you have a large lathe. 

Mounted on top of the headstock is a vertical milling attachment with a 40 INT taper. This is simply unclamped and swivelled out of the way when not wanted. The attachment moves up and down with the headstock giving a depth-of-cut adjustment.

This machine is not going to replace a centre lathe or a turret mill but  the size of work that can be bored, turned or milled will give a standard lathe or mill of much larger size some serious competition. The machine is compact, more so than an equivalent size lathe or mill, but still weighs 2.5 tonnes. If your work is outside of simple mainstream machining - such as repairing old vehicles, farm machinery, industrial equipment, aircraft or anything similar - or odd one-offs for any type of customer when large bits of metal need to be machined, then it could very well answer many problems. This is an unusual machine for unusual jobs. £5000 For more details and please email: eng at bwelectronics.co.uk (replace “at” with @ of course) or phone: 01476-550826  Pictures of the Siome Covema TA2 for sale here and details of Siome Covema machine tools here

To place a Wanted Advertisement please e-mail your requirements to: adverts@lathes.co.uk

We can't promise that every “Wanted” advertisement will work as well as the following - but you never know.

I thought you might like to know that the last of my advertisements has been very successful, as were all the others. This was a "Wanted Advert" for a Thiel high-speed vertical head, It was only on your advice that it mentioned I would consider a “complete machine” and, as a result, the foreman of **** University workshop (who was viewing your site, looking for a woodturning lathe) spotted my ad and contacted me. His workshop capacity was being reduced and I am now the proud owner of a fully equipped Thiel 158 with the rare high-speed head, all the collets, universal table and special Thiel circular table - all resplendent in unmarked original paint. The university decided to keep the dividing head but I couldn't grumble as everything was offered for just £100. I didn't negotiate! There was even a handbook, spares catalogue and the original test certificates.

So your site definitely works for both Sales and Wants - and in my case knocks E-bay out of sight. Thank you for an excellent service, Regards, Dave Quatermain.

 

A note of caution when you are running a “Wanted” advertisement – scammers are everywhere. If you are offered machines or parts and the seller cannot send photographs (typically, they claim that their ISP is playing up) or want paying by “Western Union” transfer (never send money this way to buy anything) it’s definitely a scam, If in doubt, please refer their reply to me: tony@lathes.co.uk

SOLD: Ormerod hand-operated shaper (this is the actual Ormerod shaper shown here)
Since building the planing machine my Ormerod hand operated shaper has been little used - and is now for sale. It has an excellent capacity for a hand shaper, with 11 inches of ram travel, 9 inches of cross feed and takes work 6 inches deep beneath the cutting tool. The box table has 3 Tee slots in the top face and ratchet-driven automatic cross feed. So that keyways can be cut in long shafts the shaper has a hole through the main body in line with the ram. The box clapper takes up to 9/16" tooling and the operating lever has a number of different positions for optimum operation, and is easily removed for transport. Weight around 120 lb - but  with the ram removed it can be lifted by one strong man and will fit comfortably into the boot of most cars. It can be collected from just south of Birmingham, or by arrangement, I could deliver within a 50 mile radius. £350 Details of the Ormerod hand shaper here

SOLD: South Boxford 125 Training Computer Lathe and a Boxford 260 Vertical Machining Centre.

260 VMC: This is in standard configuration with all the Boxford quick-change tooling and a carousel tool holder plus its original base unit (the base unit is not shown in the photo )

SOLD: Holbrook Model B No.8 Lathe. 4" x 20”, backgeared with screwcutting gearbox, power sliding and surfacing feeds, automatic micro-adjustable disengage of the power sliding feed and taper turning.

This is a magnificent, not to say museum quality example of these superb lathes and is in virtually pristine, original condition. Built to very exacting standards, more information can be found here (the lathe is actually featured in that section, the grey one). Since acquiring it a few years ago (at which time I was told it had been bought new around 1937 and used solely for clockmaking/instrument work), I have used it little—and then only for delicate work and that little showed what a lovely machine it is. On health grounds I now need to downsize and it sadly has to go. Apart from a headstock bearing oiler system I fitted it’s as originally supplied, complete on the maker’s stand with new switchgear; two-speed gearbox and powered by a single-phase motor driving the built-on overhead countershaft. As part of the original equipment there is a separately motorised overhead drive for precision grinding spindle and other accessories. Accessories include: 2 chuck backplates; 3 and 4 jaw chucks (not fitted – as it came like that with both  the previous user and myself preferring to use the range of collets included); drive plate/catch plate; T-slotted faceplate; taper-turning attachment; a lever-operated tailstock in addition to the standard screw variety; original collet and accessory stand (to which I added a second tier). I also fitted it with a quick-change toolpost. Although compact this is a heavy machine – the lathe alone is around 200 Kg  and the cast iron stand with motor, gearbox, overhead drive gear, etc., probably add another 600Kg. The top face of the stand is finished like a surface plate! Definitely not a lathe for the spare bedroom. £2500

The drive comes from the original flat belt countershaft driven by a 3-phase motor from a high-torque variable speed 1-phase to 3-phase  inverter. With the lathe is a full set of screwcutting changewheels, a 3-jaw chuck with both sets of jaws, a good selection 15 mm  shank collets. Since I had the bed reground and rebuilt it, the lathe is unused (I've bought a bigger machine and already have three other smaller lathes). This a very strong and , beautifully made lathe. £695 Pictures of the Leinen lathe for sale here and details of Leinen L4Z Lathes here

 

SOLD: Holbrook “Edgar” 5 inch x 21 inch backgeared and screwcutting lathe with swing bed and a built-on overhead countershaft unit.

As part of my exercise in preparing to downsize for health reasons I have to let this go. It was designed by Edgar Holbrook, hence its name, and manufactured at the Holbrook works in London. Designed to incorporate most standard features of lathes of the period plus a variety of novel ideas it was launched in 1923. Its high cost limited sales which ceased in the early 1930s—hence it’s a reasonably rare machines compared with others of similar vintage. Full details at http://www.lathes.co.uk/edgar/  The most interesting feature is the separate swivelling front bed that carries the saddle and works as a built-in taper-turning attachment for long tapers ; the headstock and tailstock are mounted on the conventional fixed bed at the rear. The lathe has unusually large handwheels with easy-to-read micrometer graduations engraved on the edges. The graduated leadscrew handwheel is 8 inches diameter. Since acquiring it I have slightly modified the drive and fitted a new 3-jaw chuck but it’s otherwise as it came. All the cosmetic work had been done and the spindle bearings are in good order.  I have used it little, mainly for making 2-Morse taper tooling, but it performs well and is very rigid as might be judged from the heavy proportions of the topslide. There is some backlash on the feedscrews (but then so does my Myford and one learns to live with it!). This lathe is one of few to survive complete with its overhead countershaft supports - these are very substantial and need a headroom of 2.15 metres (7 ft) - but that could be reduced by around 12 inches by shortening the belt and the support columns. (it is shown temporarily standing on wooden blocks). All this ruggedness makes it rather heavy, possibly in the region of 350 Kg. It has a drawer built in which carries the change wheels, a brand new 3-jaw chuck, backplate for a 4-jaw and a second backplate or catchplate; tailstock chuck. 1-phase electrics. A thoroughly useable and very interesting lathe. £550 Pictures of the Edgar lathe for sale here and details of Edgar lathes here

SOLD: Cowells miniature precision milling machine with many extras and a number of useful refinements: original pulleys replaced by others to suit a stronger and smaller type of belting resulting in a much more quiet (and stronger) machine.  Micrometer dials added to the handwheels ; the dials can be turned ( and thus set to zero) independent from the handwheels.  A strong spring for the quill down-feed, eliminating backlash. Provision for stop screws left and right on the top slide.  Original control board replaced by a Lenze ( a top quality German brand).The accessories include :

Cowells collets 3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 mm. Cowells drill chucks 0-4 mm and 0-8 mm. An improved Cowells machine vice and Cowells angle plate. Professionally-made dividing attachment including 9 Swiss Aciera division plates 50-59-60-62-72-90-96-110-180.  A number of professionally (much finer than Cowells) made items: boring arbor; saw arbor to suit saws with different hole sizes; cutter arbor for 7 mm hole cutters ( like Thornton) and a very fine miniature dividing table (useful for e.g. crossing out wheels).

One grub screw needs to be replaced; there is some play in the spindle of the dividing attachment (thus far compensated by a brass strip between spindle and the body), and the top slide shows up a few minor marks which do not interfere with the accuracy of the machine.

Price 1750 GBP. Note : new price at the moment 2600 GBP without the important accessories mentioned under (d) and (e). The machine is in the Netherlands but at an extra cost (150 GBP) I am happy to bring it across the Channel (or elsewhere in Europe within 600 km from my place) Pictures of the Cowells miller for sale here and details of Cowells machines here
