I had enquiries from around the country and France, Portugal and Spain - sold for the asking price. Thank you for running the advertisement for my Meyer and Burger UW1; I had an excellent response and the machine sold very quickly.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 sold to a lovely Irish gentleman, Mike. I want to thank you for all the help - 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. 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. Thanks for identifying all the mysterious parts and listing them - a wonderful service. I must thank you for the advice in to describing the lathe and the price to ask. The manner of the advertisement's presentation certainly attracted the right sort of serious buyer--I'm so pleased I chose to sell it this way.  Now sold - thanks to your great site (again!). My lathe sold this morning for the full asking price, thanks to you. A terrific value-for-money service.

Backgeared for gear-driven low speeds when horizontal milling and fitted with variable-speed drive using a 3-phase .55 kW motor controlled by a VFD (replacing the original .3KW single-phase motor which is included).

I acquired this versatile but compact milling machine about eight years ago from a colleague's father who was downsizing his property. He had purchased the machine from new and the sales brochure is with the machine. He used it for model engineering, building scale steam engines. He'd not worked it hard and looked after it with great care - and in my eight years of ownership I've tried to do the same. It complimented my Myford ML7 perfectly and these machines started my engineering hobby. £1740 Phone: 07712-893551 (Tiverton, Devon).

SOLD: Simonet Precision Swiss Capstan Lathe. This is a high-quality, Swiss-made compact machine of Myford/Boxford size in full working order. It's driven by a 2-speed, reversible 3-phase motor (complete with a 3-phase inverter) through an intermediate 2-speed gearbox with integral countershaft fitted with a 3-step pulley that gives 24 spindle speeds. It has very substantial headstock bearings (and a T-slot above the front bearing that allows the fitting of tool slide). The lathe is mounted on an adapted Myford ML8 cabinet stand fitted with castors for ease of movement -  the original cast iron stand (seriously heavy) is available if wanted. The reason for using another stand is that the original, while providing rigid support, offered precious little storage space. The 6-station capstan/turret is auto indexing and has the usual stops to limit stroke. The lathe comes with various simple capstan tooling (it takes tooling with ¾ inch shanks, but I have found 5/8 inch shank tools can be sleeved-up with seamless steel tubing suitably machined - some is supplied - and works just as well.) I used it solely for making brass knurled nuts and that is the tooling shown (note - the knurling tool shown is incorrect - the correct one by C.Taylor of Birmingham is shown separately). It has a lever-operated cut-off slide with the original rear toolpost and a modified Myford rear toolpost at the front. Fitted with lever-operated collet closer and it comes with an extensive range of Imperial collets (Brown and Sharpe, Murad, Crawford, Hardinge) mainly for rounds but with some squares and some hexagons, plus a box full of duplicates and another box with various drill holders. Apologies for the overall views photos - could not get far enough back to get decent shots and the background clutter has (mostly) been edited out! £895 or offers. Located in Sheffield - collection only. £950 or offers. Pictures of the Simonet Capstan lathe for sale here

For sale: a  Scope multi-function lathe - incomplete for restoration. A machine intended for " Combined turning, drilling, milling, and planing machine."
A real shed find, I've cleaned it up but it's beyond my capabilities to get it into full working order. What is there is in fair condition; the headstock appears good with no undue noises when running; backgear is complete and working; the bed bars have marks and light pitting, but both carriages are free with little play and are fully adjustable; the leadscrew and elevating table mechanism both work with some backlash. It has a working Brook Crompton motor and Dewhurst switch and the lathe can be seen under power. While the tumble-reverse mechanism has wear to its bronze pinions, it's all there. Some of the screwcutting gear train is in place - although probably not the full set. The heavy undertray in cast iron is also present. Parts to find include the top and cross slides (though these should be adaptable from another make), some tailstock components and the mechanism for slotting/shaping. The cast alloy cover on the headstock has a chunk missing, but the gear train cover is fine, complete with screwcutting data table. No chucks or tooling. Very heavy for its size - and definitely a three-man lift. A bargain at just £100 Phone: 01225-782729 (Bath) Pictures of the Scope lathe for salehere and details of Scope lathes here
