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

SOLD: a late model Myford ML10, circa 1982, with taper roller bearings in the headstock and imperial leadscrews. I have owned this lathe for 15 years, and I believe that the previous owner was Malcolm Savage (5.5mm Association - Malcolm Savage 1946-2018 (55ng.co.uk)) as the user manual that came with it (included in the sale) is signed by him. The lathe is in excellent general condition and well-specified with optional extras. It has the optional dog-clutch on the leadscrew, and it is mounted on Myford riser blocks and swarf tray. It has zeroing friction dials fitted to the top-slide, cross-slide and leadscrew, the latter being particularly useful. It has a new 3-phase motor fitted, so you will need a VFD to run it, but this allows speeds well above the normal 840rpm maximum for older ML10 models, as the headstock bearings are the same as Myford used in the subsequent Speed-10 model. Many accessories are included: - a Pratt Burnerd 3-jaw chuck with both sets of jaws, Pratt Burnerd 4-jaw chuck, Myford faceplate, Myford fixed steady. Several toolposts - a Multifix-style quick-change toolpost with nine assorted holders (which I will consider selling - this is almost new and would cost about 400 Euro from PeWe Tools Gmbh (www.pewetools.de), a Myford quick-change with 2 holders, the maker's 4-way toolpost and a robust, shop-made solid toolpost. Jacobs tailstock chuck, a full set of changewheels, Morse taper centres, spanners, chuck guard and a Myford dust cover - which must be very rare. I can also include the bench - if needed (but the blue engineer's vice visible in a couple of the photographs is not included). £1500 Pictures of the Myford ML10 for sale here and details of ML10 lathes here
