For Sale: Tom Senior M1 Vertical and Horizontal Milling Machine in excellent condition. Downsizing so unfortunately this most useful miller must be sold. This versatile miller can mill horizontally and vertically with all attachments included. The 31" x 61/2" power-feed table has three rates of feed. The main drive has 12 geared speeds including a slow-speed backgear system gear for very high-torque cuts. The 3-phase motor is inverter driven with power from a normal single-phase supply to give variable speed control - the speed range is thus enormous and changing speeds by moving the belt position not really necessary. The inverter is included in the sale. Also included are a large-capacity drill chuck, a set of T-nuts and a selection of milling cutters. Please ask any questions you may have. £1650 Located at CA8 7NW about 25 miles from Penrith.

For Sale: SIXIS S101 High-precision Milling Machine. Since we moved house, I now find I have little space for all of my toys and so am gradually arranging to sell some of them off. The S101 is a high-quality, Swiss-made machine and comes with many accessories as shown in the photographs. It is powered via a 3-phase inverter which in turn plugs into a UK standard mains socket (230v). It has hardly been used during the last few years and, as such, is in good condition. Various W12 arbors are included and (not shown) some W12 collets which are in fair condition - although these are relatively easy to obtain. Also included is a genuine Sixis machine stand with cupboard storage. Feel free to contact me should you require further information. The machine breaks down into manageable parts and so will easily fit in a small van or estate car. £3950 Tel: Matt on 07831-644447 Pictures of the Sixis S101 for sale here and details of Sixis machines here

The enclosure has a safety interlock on the front Perspex door - currently disabled easily re-installed. Controlled at the moment by an older laptop--which is included, as is the software (MPS2000 software supplied by Quantum as part of the package). The motor fitted is the optional higher-power one.
Included is a full set of collets and a Jacob's chuck with mounting spindle.
I have a copy of the Dolphin CAD/CAM package and can supply a trial copy of this - but the buyer may very well prefer an alternative. Only one other CNC Taig Mill in an enclosure has been offered for sale recently, at £3,500. Mine is offered at £2350. The DolphinCAD/CAM package, if required, is £400.

SOLD: Myford Super 7BPXF 3.5" x 19" backgeared with screwcutting gearbox and power cross feed. Mounted on a cabinet stand with large chip tray and the maker's levelling blocks. This lathe was owned from new by my uncle (the second of two he had).

It was my uncle's pride and joy and, as such, it has always been very well maintained and remains in excellent condition. Comprehensively equipped, it comes with a host of desirable accessories: full maker's coolant equipment, capstan-handles lever-action tailstock attachment, three 3-jaw chucks with a variety of inside, outside, hard & soft jaws, the correct half-depth body 6-inch 4-jaw independent chuck, swivelling vertical slide, fixed steady, travelling steady, rear toolpost, quick-set toolpost, 4-way toolpost, standard toolpost, a set of drive dogs, thread-dial indicator, faceplate, catchplate and the makers Instruction, Maintenance and Parts Manual.

SOLD: an interesting, unusually small geared-head lathe of unknown make. Found in England, of a relatively heavy build and obviously of professional manufacture, this most unusual miniature geared-head lathe has a centre height of 3.5" and a between-centres capacity of around 15".

The four spindle speeds are changed by four rods marked A, B, C and D - two protruding through the left-hand face of the (now home-made) headstock top cover and the other two through the end of the bed.
