For Sale: Emco FB2 milling machine in superb condition owned by myself, a caring, apprentice trained precision engineer, it was purchased new in 1986. At the time it was a close decision between this or a Tom Senior E type mill - with this chosen primarily for the table power feed option and easy speed change on the geared head versus the Senior's step pulley belt drive and no power feed.
Mounted on the maker's cabinet stand with cupboard storage and chip tray, the miller has been little used for just model engineering and remains in superb, pristine condition with an unmarked table. The painted surfaces one so often sees scuffed or chipped have been protected with cork mats and consequently remain in excellent condition.. The miller runs just as it did when new and the imperial feed screws and nuts, although adjustable for wear, have never needed adjustment and have minimal backlash. Located to the column with a long key with gib adjustment, the No. 2 Morse taper head maintains its precise position when moved vertically and has both fine-feed and rapid-action drilling feeds. The genuine Emco power feed unit was fitted from new and the spindle drawbar protective cover is still present.
Complete with all original tools, spanners, the proper Emco dust cover, sales brochure, and user manual.
For transport the machine is easily dismantled into manageable parts and could be moved a hatchback with the seats down. £2750 Phone: 07510-870778 (Hatfield, Hertfordshire). Pictures of the Emco FB2 miller for sale here and details of Emco FB2 milling machines here

SOLD: a late-model, very little-used (ex-school) 10-inch stroke shaping machine by Viceroy (Royal) with an excellent specification: a Taylor multi-disc clutch that disengages the drive and allows to motor to keep running; the table has power feed in both directions - vertically as well - and is fitted with a robust machine vice. I've owned this shaper for thirty years, but only used it twice - hence it's in perfect mechanical condition with all the slideways, leadscrews and other moving parts free of wear and the maker's frosting marks still on the slideways (as shown in the photographs below). Running from a 1-phase to 3-phase capacitor bank (though the off switch is faulty) £650 Pictures of the Viceroy/Royal shaper for sale here, details of Viceroy Royal shapers here (note the hyper links at the top of the page) and a video of the shaper working here
For Sale in immaculate condition and with a wide range of accessories: an Adcock and Shipley 1ES vertical and horizontal milling machine: this is a top-of-the-range model factory fitted with a Bridgeport "J-Type" ram-type, swivelling vertical head with speeds from 67 to 4600 r.p.m. The head has both power down-feed and hand-driven fine and rapid action feeds. Included with the head is the Bridgeport special right-angle adapter and some cutter arbours. The miller has power feed to the 30" x 8" table at rates from 0.24 to 1 mm per resolution of the spindle - the table feeds screws and dials being metric. An Accurite III digital readout is fitted and works on all three axes. The miller has centralised lubrication to the 1ES part of the machine.
Included are all the essential parts and useful accessories: a number of 40 INT horizontal milling arbours and the drop-bracket support (I've never used the miller in the horizontal mode, but have used one previously and, in the slow-speed backgear, are capable of serious metal removal); a range of R8 tooling and collets to fit the Bridgeport spindle, including a nearly new Clarkson type small Autolock collet chuck with metric and imperial collets and a light unit; a good quality but not named, 6-inch diameter rotary table with 4 'T' slots. The table has had a new cursor fitted at the front for easier reading against the degree scale and has been set so that, at 0, the 'T' slots are parallel to the x and y axes. I also had a mounting plate made, surface ground parallel, to raise the rotary table so that the handle cleared the DRO reader on the front edge of the table. An Astra-branded tilting dividing head is also included; approximately 4-inch centre height and fitted with a 4-inch three-jaw chuck - the graduated plate behind the chuck has 36 holes (from memory) to allow simple dividing. It also has the sector arms and handle for compound dividing but I never got around the obtaining division plates. I'll also include a full set of T-nuts, levelling blocks, clamps and clamping bolts and studs.
There is some backlash on the feeds, but when taken up and the digital read out system re-set to zero it has never presented any problems (that's the advantage of a DRO). A second complete and functional Bridgeport head (minus down feed lever and handwheel) is also included--and ideal as source of spares. A very versatile miller, this ES is running on single-phase and so ideal for the smaller workshop. Only selling because the miller is now too large for the nature of the work I do. £2750 For more detail please email: email@example.com (Sheffield) Pictures of the Adcock & Shipley for sale here and details of Adcock & Shipley 1ES millers here and Bridgeport milling heads here

For Sale: an unusual and interesting precision mini jig-borer/engraving machine / router (this has no nameplate but I saw one for sale recently with a plate 'Renovated by Andrew Hupfield Ltd., London E.C.3'). The machine was bought a few years ago with the idea of converting it into a profile milling machine by adapting the overhead 'saddle', which carries the motorised spindle and is usually clamped in position, free to move along the dovetail and be 'power fed' by a weight. By fitting the spindle mount with a stylus or guide pin it could then follow a template or pattern when the cross traverse was operated. However, I do not have the time! As it stands, it has enlarged micrometer dials fitted to longitudinal and cross-feed screws. All feedscrews operate smoothly and with little backlash (the longitudinal screw is protected by 'roller blinds' attached to the main carriage and the frame). It has a built-in, 15-inch diameter rotary table with a micrometer dial, graduated on its periphery 0 - 360 degrees and with two shallow jaws for holding thin material. The carriage carrying the rotary table has a cross travel of 12 inches and a movement side to side of centre of around 10 inches. The table has a number of small diameter (1/4 inch or so) tapped holes for use with small clamping devices. The cross-head carries a spindle in a bearing housing mounted on a vertical dovetail slide that can be moved up and down by a lever; this has a counterbalance weight fitted so the spindle automatically rises when the lever is released. The spindle housing also has a depth stop and screw feed. Able to run at high speeds the spindle is fitted with a small chuck to take ¼ inch or thereabouts cutter shanks and has been used in the past as a router. The whole machine is very much like an overgrown BCA type jig borer and would be ideal for making and engraving clock faces. It stands about 5 feet high and has a footprint of about 3 feet x 3.5 feet. It dismantles easily but the parts are much too heavy for me to lift in my delicate state of health, I fitted castors to help move it around. Single phase motor fitted - a previous owner (or Andrew Hupfield) -made a motor mount to fit on the cross-head behind the spindle - a bit crude but it works. Comes with a number of cutters and small clamps. £675 Pictures of the "mini-jig-borer" for sale here For more information please email Peter at: email@example.com
SOLD: Meyer Burger UW1 (Astoba) Universal Machine Tool. This superb, Swiss-built Machine combines many machines into one and so is ideal for a smaller workshop. Further details information can be found here: www.uw1.ch and http://www.lathes.co.uk/meyerburger/index.html
The lathe comes complete with the standard topslide; a tailstock based on a Myford Super 7 that, for versatility, takes Morse Taper 2 accessories - and an original UW1 taistock. The machine is complete on the maker's cabinet stand with storage shelves for accessories.

SOLD: Juvenia Precision Bench lathe 4" x 20" One of the more exclusive, very high quality Swiss-made precision plain turning lathes, this example is fitted with changewheel-driven "Chase screwcutting". I bought this as a 'project' but, as I already have too many, its never likely to be finished.
The bed has two inverted 'V's' and vertical flat face with, unusually, full-length 'T' slots at both the front and rear to mount accessories. The headstock has a 4-step pulley to take a wider-than-usual flat belt. The rear face of the large pulley having two rows of 'division' holes which are engaged by an adjustable pin. The spindle nose is threaded for a chuck and bored to accept collets. A chuch backplate is supplied, but no collets. The left-hand end of the spindle is fitted with a gear to drive a thread chasing attachment. The cross slide is of the "toolmaker" type with screw-feeds, metric micrometer dials, a swivelling top slide and an "American" adjustable toolpost.The leading edge corner has the usual marks from the chuck being run into it...T he tailstock has a metric ruler-graduated barrel and is clamped to the bed by a lever operating an eccentric 'T' bolt.The thread-chasing attachment (details of this high-precision system here) bears a remarkable similarity to that found on American Cataract lathes and is mounted on the rear vertical face of the bed. As with the Cataract device, the buttress-thread 'feedscrew' has its own thread hob built-in so new thread followers can be cut when needed. Included are a number of change wheels, a few with chipped or missing teeth. £475 or offers. Pictures of the Juvenia lathe for sale here and details of Juvenia lathes here

Although unused for many decades, the lathe had survived in fine mechanical order and with everything correctly housed in the stand. One must conclude that the lathe, its accessories and stand were imported as a complete and very expensive package circa 1905 to 1910 and installed in either a watch-making factory, a high-end jewellers in London or Birmingham - or possible a Government research centre. Six batches of the Model C were made, in lots of one-hundred, the lathe shown having a serial number that places it amongst the last made in batch No. 5 at some point between 1905 and 1907.

SOLD: 1902 Drummond 3.5" x 15|" lathe. The very first of its type identifiable by the very slight curve along the lower edge of its bed beneath the headstock; a "braced" headstock with pinch bolts passing below the bearings and a single swivelling tool slide mounted on the T-slotted boring table. Mounted on the original maker's cast-iron stand with flywheel treadle drive, this having both rim edge and smaller, central grooves for both low and high-speed drives. Complete with all the screwcutting changewheels, the stud to generate left-hand threads and a 3-jaw chuck. Stored away in 1940, it has remained unused since.

For Sale: a Centec 2A universal milling machine mounted on the maker's stand with chip tray and equipped with the Mk.3 swivelling vertical head - this having both wheel-operated fine and lever-action drilling feeds along the tool axis.

The machine has been totally refurbished, stripped and repainted and fitted with a new 0.75kW 3-phase motor controlled by a variable-speed inverter running from the domestic 1-phase supply.

Four No.2 Morse taper spindle collets of 1/8", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" and some tooling. This is a high-quality machine, very versatile and an ideal companion for the model or experimental engineer. To save wear on the swivelling Centec table, an inexpensive table has been fitted - though this can easily be swapped over in around 30 minutes if necessary. £1650 Phone: 07798-587944 Pictures of the Centec 2A milling machine for sale here and details of Centec millers 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).
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 no two Centecs seem to be exactly the same - to be sure that you get back exactly what you need.
