Thanks for the carefully crafted Schaublin advertisement; enquiries from Australia, United States and Europe and sold for the asking price.  Many thanks for the work preparing the ad for my father's lathe - you are worth every penny charged, and you can't often say that these days: Three inquiries in a very short time and it went to a lovely Irish gentleman who  took it to Dublin:  Over twenty enquiries, 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 a 6" lathe in the USA from your sales and wanted pages; thanks for the site, I could not find anything in the US or anywhere else as good.

Now sold - thanks to your great site (again!)

For Sale: Harrison Vertical and Horizontal milling machine - metric graduations. I have owned this miller for 20 years and use it frequently; it's in good condition and full working order.
Complete with a INT30 vertical head and a horizontal arbor complete with spacers and keys and support. The 30" x 8" table swivels, making the machine a true "Universal".  The horizontal arbor has been rarely used by me and is in excellent condition.  The table power feed has never worked in my ownership - but the gearbox for it is in good condition and I suspect it may need a new motor or wiring.  Backlash on the X-axis is 0.2mm and 0.1 mm on the Y. The table has one mark, made before my ownership, from a 17 mm endmill which is 0.4mm deep.  In operation, this simply does not affect accuracy or flexibility of use.

The only reason for sale is that I am buying a Bridgeport as I need a larger capacity.

SOLD: an original Adept No.1 hand-operated shaping machine - a machine that has seen a very sheltered life and dates from the period 1935 to around 1960. The whole unit has been stripped down, the sliding surfaces polished to ensure smooth action and then lubricated with the correct slideway oil. Considering the original cost, they were very well made and now represent a fascinating introduction to the art of the hand-operated shaper in a compact form. Table 4 x 5 inches, ram travel 4 inches and a down feed of about 2 inches. The clapper box rotates each way about 40 degrees from the vertical. A big advantage over the Alexander and Robblak hand shapers is that the working surface can easily be raised or lowered to accommodate jobs of a different height. £195 Phone: 07522-194210 (Thetford, Norfolk) Pictures of the Adept No.1 shaper for sale here and details of Adept shapers here

The drilling table is very clean, showing a few minor dings, so I suspect the drill has seen little use. The drill chuck and key appear to be original and have been manufactured by Almond of Conn. USA .  All that's needed to complete the drill are a small fractional motor - one from a sewing machine is often used on this type of machine - and a round belt (this can be ordered here) £125 Phone: 07522-194210 (Thetford, Norfolk) Pictures of the Champion drill for sale here and details of these useful little drills can be found here

Centec Milling Machine feed screws and nuts:
I'm the owner of the green Centec 2b milling machine (shown on this page) that I spent a good part of a year reconditioning. As no feedscrews or nuts were available in England, I took the parts to a German machine shop in my home town of Solingen - a shop that works with the Wilkinson factory in town (yes, it's a German company!) and which maintains a lot of old British (imperial) machines.  The owner made new feedscrews in stainless steel and cut both X and Y phosphor-bronze nuts (including the much sought-after half-nut) from solid stock - like this.  The man is really easy to deal with - but he doesn't speak English and he isn't cheap either, but because he has a real enthusiasm for these old machines I get these things at about half the price most other shops in Solingen offered.  If anyone is interested in getting replacements for these parts, please get in touch with him as follows:
Telephone number: 0049-212-2308811 (mobile +49-172-2069383).
Email: Dieter.Falkowski@t-online.de
Because he doesn't speak English - and if you don't speak German - you can call me on 0049-212-818305 or 0049-176-724 83304 or
hugh_allen on Skype and I'd be happy to help you discuss the matter.  You'd have to send over the parts - because as no two surviving Centecs seem to be exactly the same - to be sure that you get back exactly what you need.

SOLD
: An exceptional Lilian Model 3-VH all-metric, Bridgeport-type, ram-head milling machine which has been in my home workshop for 18 years. Built in 1999, the miller was first owned by a medical research company from whom I purchased it when they closed. Since then, as I spend long periods overseas,  the miller has had only occasional and light use and I am now selling all my larger machines prior to moving house. Built by Lilian Industrial (www.Lilian.com.tw) the 3-VH is in current production, of the Bridgeport pattern and, at 1250 kg, more heavily constructed. With a powerful 3 h.p., 3-phase motor (more than a Bridgeport could safely handle) it has wonderful metal-removing ability with the vari-speed drive giving speeds from 120 to 4200 r.p.m. The 50" x 10" table bears not a single tool mark, has a maximum loading of 600 Kgs and power feed on both the X and Y axis (an absolute boon to people such as myself with 'dodgy' backs!) The head 'nods' +/- 45 degrees and rotates effectively through 180 degrees each side from central. Included is a coolant system, work light and DROs fitted to the quill and both table travels (the latter being a high-quality Mitutoyo DRO). The machine is accurate, quiet in operation and comes with original manuals, test report and wiring diagrams. The machine is currently run from a rotary converter which can be made available at additional cost if needed. Access for machine removal is good. I would be pleased to consider a part exchange against a really good small vertical or universal mill such as a Senior Mi with 'E' head. Pictures of the Lilian 3-VH milling machine for sale here.
