I had enquiries from around the country and also from France, Portugal and Spain - sold for the asking price. 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:  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. 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. Thank you for identifying all the mysterious parts and listing them - a wonderful service. I must thank you for the advice with respect to describing the lathe and the price to advertise it.  The manner in which the advertisement was presented 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!)
Buyers and sellers - please be fair to each other. Organising  visits and transport can be time consuming and expen

For Sale Hardinge HLV lathe. This is a lovely, ex-Rolls Royce machine and was bought from the owner who worked for them and bought the machine when he retired.
The machine is in amazing condition - though naturally, for a 60-year-old,  there is some wear and a few marks but nothing that detracts from its functionality, precision and superb engineering and build quality. I have undertaken some key improvements on the machine and these are: Fully laminated manual and new wiring diagrams. New 3 h.p. VFD driven main motor. New Carriage DC motor driven by a VFD. Completely rewired and all new electrical cabinet re-fit with chokes, filters, fuses, VFD's etc. Newly designed master control panel bringing all controls to the front of the machine and gives main motor on/off, emergency stop, fwd/rev, run and jog options, machine light, coolant, variable main motor speed, carriage motor variable-speed control, fwd/rev and stop. Newton Tesla supplied most of the motor/VFD equipment and advised on the upgraded electric installation. The control panel is made from 3mm steel and epoxy painted black, has a CNC cut panel with control panel info and graphics and is compliment to the machine's looks and uses high-quality BACO switches. The panel is mounted to the main door with two multi-pin connectors allowing removal from the main wiring loom. The original mechanical speed-control function is still operates via a newly machined control knob situated to the right of the new control panel, this allows the user to dial in exactly the required speed and torque need for a specific job. The original carriage motor variac now houses an r.p.m. reader showing true spindle speeds. There is a good selection of tooling and accessories, a taper-turning attachment, collets, 3 and 4-jaw chucks, radius-turning accessories, steady, gear-change banjo for metric-transposing changewheels - plus others. The Multifix tool holder - which is original and not a copy - is not in the sale, but negotiable. There is an excellent 4-way clamping tool post supplied with the machine when I bought it. Hardinge HLV lathes are built to last and the engineering is superb. I've been interested in Schaublin machine tools for some time - and now fancy a change and would like to find a Schaublin 125 owner who fancies a Hardinge HLV and is happy to work out a swap deal. If this proves impossible, then might sell the Hardinge and try my luck in the machine-dealer world to source a  Schaublin 125. £4000. Offers considered over the asking price.

SOLD: Seba shaper, circa 1960s. Appears to have an identical technical specification to the Pinondo 350 model (http://www.lathes.co.uk/pinondo). The shaper is extremely well engineered - even the motor drive belt cover is a 10mm thick iron casting - with a 1.5 h.p, 3-phase motor controlled by a variable-speed inverter to facilitate fine control of the ram speed. The clapper box has an off/on auto lift, the cutting head has a 6-rate, adjustable up/down automatic feed rate and the ram is lubricated by a variable-flow pump. All these features combine to offer an outstandingly refined shaper (with metric execution). The robust, box-cube working table has normal T-slots (for 14 mm threaded studs), a V-groove for bar work, and can be rotated to help with difficult jobs. The paint finish is original - but a little tired. The machine is stamped No.725 and, when purchased, all the slideways were cleaned of their "as-delivered" protective coating, revealing the manufacturer's original "frosting" showing that the machine has seen very little use. Included with the machine are:- the Pinondo service manual, the "Lathes" Shaper User Book, Sharpening of Lathe and Shaper Tools book, 5-off T-nuts plus a 20 mm lifting eye, and a suitable short lifting strap. Delivery, suitably strapped to a standard pallet, can be arranged at cost. The machine can easily be converted to  240-volt, single-phase with  DOL starter or with a VFD unit to control the motor speed with start/stop. The stop button is inoperative as the motor can be rapidly disengaged by the clutch. Pictures of the Seba shaper for sale 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 interesting Turnell & Odell lathe - approximately 4-inch centre height and 24 inches between centres. This well-equipped lathes is backgeared, screwcutting and fitted with tumble-reverse, a detachable gap to the bed and a most unusual super-fine feed to the carriage through worm-and-wheel gearing.

The lathe has eight spindle speeds driven by a powerful 1-phase motor (with Dewhurst reversing switch). The drive is through a bench-mounted all-V-belt drive countershaft system with screw-feed adjustment for belt tension setting. This is an interesting and well-engineered lathe that is set-up and ready to use. £475

SOLD: Smart and Brown Model A MkII toolroom lathe for sale. The lathe was restored by its previous owner and has a lovely paint job and engine-turned apron.  Everything works very well, the powered feeds in both directions, the very useful autofeed knock-off, the screwcutting gearbox, etc, - all are function perfectly. The Lathe comes with all the tooling S&B ever sold, plus some extras which the previous owner made himself. Items include:  taper-turning attachment, spindle collets and drawbar with (rare) cone and fir-tree collets, faceplate, two 3-jaw chucks (one a most useful "Tudor" type with each jaw adjustable on its serrated seating), 4-jaw independent chuck, 4-jaw self centering chuck, micrometer bed stop, travelling steady, spindle indexing attachment (homemade), broaching attachment (homemade), radius-turning attachment (homemade), a dividing head (homemade), tailstock drill chucks & centres and a spare drive belt, etc. Also included are the custom-made cabinets that hold the tooling (some would say this alone is probably worth more than I'm asking for the lathe...).Bad points:  The drive motor has blown a capacitor which helps with the starting, so you have to give the spindle a little twist to get it going (but is then fine at full speed).  It's not an original motor and will be easy to replace.  The bed has some wear and dents near the headstock.  The tailstock is stamped with the same serial number as the lathe, but is a little lower than the headstock by about 0.2mm (I only realised after about 8 years). If nobody buys the lathe, then I will dismantle it and get the bed reground, as it's too sweet not to save - but I'd be willing to sell it cheap and let someone else undertake that, or live with the small issues like I've done ten years!  I love this lathe and it's a regretful sale, but I have upgraded to something larger and need the space. Lathe currently on a pallet, we can load with a tractor onto a trailer. Pictures of the lathe for sale here and details of Smart & Brown Model A lathes here

SOLD
: Robblak hand-operated shaper--believed by the Robert Black factory. Probably Edwardian period as the style of the only lettering on the down slide indicates ( see photo ) The table size is about 10 X 9 inches, tool down-feed 1.5 inches with a cross feed of 6 inches with automatic feed in both directions. The main unit is cast iron, total weight about 35 kgs.

Ram and down-feed slides reworked and all guideways lubricated with T33 slideway oil .The central lug of the base plate has been broken off and will be repaired with an inset laser profiled part. An upgrade is available which replaces the base plate by a box cube and an "angle-plate work surface" -  much in the style of the Adept No. 2 hand shaper and makes the unit far more versatile as the height of the workpiece and vice is easily adjusted. £195 Pictures of the Robblak shaper for sale here and details of Robblak shapers here

SOLD: an unused, new, old-stock PRATT all-steel 15-inch (380mm) diameter 4-jaw combination chuck with D1-8 fitting, which, I believe, fits the Colchester Mascot 1600, Harrison M400, M450, M500 and the DSG 15" & 17", DSG 17-09, DSG 19-10, DSG 1910T, DSG 21-12, DSG 21-12ct, etc. The independently screw-adjusted jaws can be set to grip an irregular shaped workpiece and then have the repeatability of a scroll chuck by operation of any one pinion. The "Camlock" fitting consists 6-pins 1" dia. on a PCD of 171.4 mm or 6.75"  This chuck has been stored in wax, but never mounted.  The photographs show the chuck in wax and, where cleaned off, the steel finish beneath.  There are surface storage marks as seen in the photographs. An ideal opportunity to add a well respected, high quality and versatile chuck to your lathe. The chuck has been boxed and mounted on a small pallet for ease of shipping with your courier. £550 or offer (chucks of the same type and size are still available - at a premium price.

SOLD: Lorch KD50 lathe. I bought this lathe for restoration, but my plans have changed and it's now for sale. Highly desirable in good condition, the tiny and rare KD50 had a centre height of just 50 mm - making it the smallest of the Lorch precision bench lathes. Available in just one bed length of 400 mm, with a between-centres capacity of 185 mm, the spindle has a bore of 8 mm and carries collets with a maximum through-bore of 5 mm and a non-through of  7 mm. Offered complete with two tailstocks, the correct Lorch countershaft and a good collection of collets (not all Lorch) the following faults are present:  Motor and headstock pulleys have broken rims; the cross-slide handle is broken but a non-Lorch part is included; bearing oilers needed; countershaft is slightly bent; top-slide has at some time been repaired; tailstock drawbar knob needs replacing; the headstock drawbar needs some modification; the wiring needs sorting out but the motor is original and works fine - it's 3-phase and has been tested. A previous owner has painted the lathe a dreadful shade of yellow using, it would appear, an old sock. So, this is an ideal Lockdown project; rebuilt and in fine condition these lathe command many thousands of pounds. Offered as-is for £850. Can be packed at shipped at the buyer's expense.

Wabeco CC-F1210 CNC milling machine. Made in Germany, fitted to full factory stand and enclosure and in showroom condition with barely a mark on it. Fitted with a factory-installed NCCAD professional control system with ball leadscrews on all axis - though the machine retains handwheels to enable traditional manual machining.
The machine was built in 2012 and the first owner used it for about an hour - so I am, effectively, the only owner from new. The machine is still a current model and lists at circa £15,000 to this specification.
The Wabeco CNC mill is suited to prototype and R&D type work and also the discerning hobbyist, it is capable of accurately machining most metals including Titanium and stainless steel along with most non metallic materials, this machine benefits from an ISO30 spindle which is powered by a 1.4 kW motor belt driving the spindle at up to 3000 rpm. The machine has a 45 litre coolant sump and 3 way coolant outlet, the machine is capable of full 3D machining and this can be demonstrated upon request of serious buyers. The milling head can be swung through 90 degrees in either direction to enable horizontal work and the quill can be stroked as per a drilling machine. The machine is supplied with one ISO30 ER25 collet holder, one ISO30 13mm keyless drill chuck and a 4.5" machine vice and includes the expensive hand pendant accessory and a complete PC and all connecting cables, thus it will be plug and play with no additions required to start machining.
Any demonstration and a half days training to the successful purchaser if required. Will ship anywhere in the World at the customer's expense. Additional photo's upon request. Reason for sale is that I am upgrading to a bigger Wabeco machine.

Little used, in immaculate condition and fitted with a 1-phase motor. This is large-capacity but compact lathe with a 12-speed quiet-running, all-V-belt drive headstock fitted with backgear giving 50 to 1200 r.p.m. The lathe is an example of the very long-established, highly successful and well-specified "generic Taiwanese" type of which details can be found here - this example being improved by the fitting of an electrical control lever on the right-hand face of the apron.

: Colchester Student Mk.1.5 lathe with the single-lever safety apron, a gap-bed, imperial graduations - and still in the maker's original paint finish. Serial number 2/53600. The lathe was purchased from Inter-City Machine Tools around 1996 and since then has been used entirely for hobby purposes. Accessories include a 3-jaw chuck (Pratt Burnerd purchased new about 20 years ago), 4-jaw independent chuck, fixed steady, 4-way toolpost, faceplate, thread-dial indicator, two drill chucks on 3 Morse tapers, an Arrand 3-Morse taper tailstock die-holder set, various Morse centres, indexable turning tools and the hard-to-find headstock spindle sleeve. A couple of minor faults: the coolant system does not work and, as on most of these lathes, the headstock gaskets weep. The Transwave static converter used to provide the three-phase supply may be available for £100 extra. Only selling because I need the space for a Bridgeport miller. £850 Pictures of the Colchester Student lathe for sale here and details of Student lathes here

SOLD
: Lorch LAS High-precision, backgeared and screwcutting lathe. Supplied new to the MOD in 1958 and then to the workshop of a professional clock repairer. In very good order, mounted on a sturdy hardwood bench and complete with the rare carriage fine-feed attachment, a new, high-quality Japanese-made Kitagawa 3-Jaw chuck with the proper Lorch locking backplate to enable safe reversing, 39 collets including 1/32" to 5/16" in 1/64 increments with drawbar and spindle nose protector, step collets, travelling steady, the maker's hand-turning rest, a complete standard set of screwcutting changewheels plus extra transposing ones to give a full range of imperial and metric pitches, bed-mounted carriage stop, 4-way toolpost and a copy of the maker's Instruction and Parts Manual. Drive is by a 1-phase to 3-phase Omron inverter to a new Crompton motor that gives, via a dial, infinitely-variable speeds and instant reversing. With the standard drive the twelve spindle speeds spanned 67 to 3000 r.p.m. but with the inverter drive these can be both much slower and faster. £2750 Pictures of the Lorch LAS for sale here and details of Lorch LAS lathes here

SOLD

Driven directly and also though a slow speed backgear for heavier work, the head can be moved in and out, swung on the main column, rotated and nodded.

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

SOLD: Champion Miniature Drilling Machine. A 1/4-inch capacity bench drill in good working and cosmetic condition. The originally painted parts have been stripped down, painted in a zinc-rich primer and top coated in a green gloss. The whole unit has been cleaned, adjusted and then greased prior to re-assembly. 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

SOLD

The vertical movements are two-fold: by the head slide and lifting the table. The spindle takes 10 mm Pultra collets held with the included drawbar. Fitted with a powerful but compact variable-speed DC motor that is easily positioned for both vertical and horizontal modes. Reconditioned and in full working order and ready to use. £1750.

: Myford ML2 lathe 3.125" x 15" gap-bed, backgeared and screwcutting. This is a late-model example with tumble-reverse to the leadscrew drive and a changewheel guard.

Also included is the correct Myford swivelling milling slide and a 3-jaw chuck. The changewheel bracket is fitted but there are no changewheels - but these are often available second-hand or even new from Myford and can be fitted to the later and much improved ML7 studs. Unused for may years the lathe could be used as-is--or would make an ideal restoration project. £225 Pictures of the Myford ML2 lathe for sale here and details of Myford ML2 lathes here
