Dominion Pattern-maker's Wood-turning Lathe
. I bought two of these very heavy-duty, professional machines years ago. I think this one is from the early 1950s and has the very useful hand-driven, rack-feed carriage with a compound slide rest assembly - this allowing really fine control of a cutting tool on precise work. I have spent a good deal of money modernizing the lathe: the original 2-inch Whitworth spindle thread has been converted to 1.5 inch x 6 t.p.i. and the outboard end an adapter to 1.5 inch x 6 t.p.i . New spindle bearings have been fitted and the original flat-belt pulleys replaced by modern, highly effective aluminium J-section 8-rib PolyVee pulleys. A modern 2-h.p. motor has been fitted controlled by a variable-speed inverter running from the ordinary single-phase mains and fitted with a remote stop-start switch. Speeds available are 0-750 rpm and 0-1500 rpm - which is all that I've ever used - though the inverter parameters are easily changed to double these speeds if needed for small diameter work. The drive is now as smooth as silk with masses of torque - I have turned successfully some huge lumps of wood with the bed gap section removed.
The lathe weighs 3/4 of a ton, has a centre height of 8.5 inches and takes 48 inches between centres. Headstock spindle and tailstock are both No. 3 Morse taper. The last two photographs show the size of the lathe and one of the old drive pulleys compared to the new. To give some scale, the "small" hand T-rest is from a Harrison Graduate. Delivery is possible - please email for a price (the tools and parts around the lathe are not for sale). Phone: 016067-81557

Seneca Fall "Star" lathe 6-inch centre height by 26 inches between centres, backgeared and screwcutting. This lathe has been in the family for many years (more than I have!). It belonged to my late uncle and I spent many hours working on it when I was a schoolboy, mainly making parts for speedway bikes
. I bought it from my uncle's family when he died and installed it in my garden shed. It was in use until a couple of years ago but since then I have built a much larger workshop and have other lathes - so I really don't use the "Star" any longer. I've been hanging on to it for nostalgic reasons - but I now need the shed space for other projects and have reluctantly decided to part with it. It's in super condition, having always been very well maintained. The bed has no damage and everything works just as it should. Some time towards the end of his life my uncle had given it a coat of "Warco" green paint which, in my opinion, looked awful! So when I acquired it I stripped it down and repainted it in black. I think it looks much better…. It comes with the following accessories, all in very good order: 8" 4-jaw Pratt chuck, 6-inch 3-jaw Pratt chuck with soft jaws, 6.5-inch 3-jaw Crown chuck. 6.5-inch 3-jaw Elliot chuck, 11" faceplate, fixed steady and a set of screwcutting changewheels. It's fitted with a non-original but well-made 4-way toolpost, though I might have the original "Yankee" toolpost somewhere - but can't promise.
The lathe is mounted on the original cast-iron legs with integral drip/swarf tray and powered by a 2 hp single phase motor--which I am happy to include; it's a large, heavy old motor but does the job well. Loading is not a problem as I can move it out of the shed and have a forklift. £600  Phone: 07952-562701 (Lincoln) Pictures of the Seneca falls Star lathe for sale here and details of these interesting machines here

SOLD: a rare and very useful "open-sided" planer made in Germany by the Heinemann Company circa 1885-1900 and sold in the UK as a Selig Sonnenthal. Like all small planers this has the ability to form a flat surface on large workpieces with low-cost tooling. Originally hand-operated, the planer has been sympathetically motorised, with a countershaft bolted to its rear and is in otherwise original condition (including what is left of the maker's paint finish). The machine incorporates a number of very ingenious and patented mechanical devices including parts of the remarkable table drive mechanism, these being stamped M.Hass Patent* - an important part of the machine and one that drew comments in the English Mechanic & World of Science Magazine of 1887 where it was described as the: Eureka (Hass' patent). In response to a reader's enquiry the reply stated:  61211  Planing Machine.  You can't make your planer like the so-called Eureka (Haas' patent) because the clutches are, firstly, patented and, secondly, difficult to make).
This is an ideal machine for the smaller workshop with 19½" X 8¾" table having had 15 inches of travel and able, because of its open-sided design to take wide jobs. £650  Pictures of the Heinemann planer for sale here, full details of these planers can be found here (the first machine shown is the one for sale) and details of Heineman machines here

The lathe is complete with all the former owner's tools and accessories including: 3-jaw chuck, two of the correct, half-depth body Burnerd 6-inch independent 4-jaw chucks, what seems to be an unused fixed steady, 4-way toolpost, rear toolpost, faceplate precision keyless tailstock chuck and thread-dial indicator. Also included is a toolmaker's cabinet with several 1-inch, 1 to 2 inch and 2 to 3 inch micrometers, two depth micrometers, sine bar, dial-test indicator, a dial indicator stand, T-squares, toolmaker's vices, a number of Morse taper sleeve adapters, a selection of high-quality calipers a of various kinds, thread-setting gauge, a good set of turning and boring tools, reamers, a number of side and face cutters (including some DP gear cutters), a large collection of drills and all the small "stored-in-tins" items that were collected over many years and associated with the lathe and its use. 1-phase motor and a Dewhurst reversing switch. £850

SOLD: a very rare 6 mm Lorch watchmakers lathe in its original nickel-plate finish and complete with the special maker's wall cabinet (43 x 35 x 15.5 cm) with lock and key - it appears to be a version of the "Triumph" Combination V1 as shown in older Lorch catalogues.

For sale: Dore Westbury Vertical Milling Machine. This fine example was made some years ago by a gold-medal winning model engineer - and then used, very carefully, in the building of his models. The miller really is superbly made and finished with no play and only a small amount of backlash in the table feedscrews.  I have recently cleaned, inspected and tested the machine and it performs perfectly - I was unable to find any faults. The table and machine vice are unmarked, as are the handles and dials. The spindle has no measurable play and everything moves smoothly and locks firmly. Paintwork was finished to good standard - though there are a few age related marks - and the bright metalwork to a similar standard with some elements polished. As can be seen in the photographs, it has a single-phase motor, the optional and useful extra-long column and sits on a wooden unit with drawers and a shop-made fibreglass drip tray - which does have a crack in one corner. There are some accessories including: the proper machine vice, an Arrand milling chuck and collets and a modern ER16 collet chuck (not shown). This is a very fine example of a Dore Westbury and it would, I think, be difficult to find better. I would be amazed if a buyer felt any disappointed upon seeing the machine. Viewing welcome. I will be away over Easter, so email me and I will make whatever arrangements suit.

SOLD: "Myford ML7RB 3.5" x 19" gap-bed, backgeared and fitted with a quick-change screwcutting gearbox, spindle clutch and the correct 3/4 h.p. single-phase motor. The ML7R was the result of Myford rationalising of production around just one design of bed, headstock and tailstock and was a Super 7 but with the ML7 cross and top slide unit - though this example has the longer of the two slides for that model and zeroing micrometer dials. Very well equipped with: Myford Imperial collet set, swivelling milling slide, milling slide vice, two independent 4-jaw chucks 6 and 4 inches in diameter, self-centering 4-jaw chuck, 4-inch 3-jaw chuck, 4-way indexing tool post, fixed steady, travelling steady, thread-dial indicator, graduated handle to leadscrew end, faceplate, spare chuck backplate, tailstock chucks, tailstock rotating centre, Morse taper centres, oil gun, spindle bearings C-spanner and the maker's instruction, maintenance and parts manual. The lathe is mounted on a professionally-built timber replica of the Myford stand complete with chip tray and raising blocks. I bought this lathe some years ago from the first owner who had hardly used it. Since then it has had only light use (I have a larger lathe as well) and in very genuine, unworn and undamaged condition. £1850 Pictures of the Myford ML7R for sale here and details of Myford lathes here and ML7R and Super 7 lathes here
