For Sale: A high-precision Mikron milling machine complete with: base unit (93) fitted with screw-operated slides and with adjustable travel stops (the table has a couple of small gouges from contact with a cutter); horizontal milling headstock (95), sets of coarse and fine thread collets; vertical milling headstock (97), which can be swivelled 45° each way from vertical and the matching collet draw tubes; the correct Mikron small swivel-base machine vice graduated 90° 0 - 90° complete the correct wrench; a Mikron plain indexing head (99) with one division plate; a second plain indexing head of slightly different pattern (each indexing head accept both the coarse and fine thread collets but will need suitable drawtubes making or adapting; tailstock (100) for indexing heads (the heads and tailstock would benefit from stripping and cleaning). The miller is in excellent condition with the vertical head and second machine painted - however Mikron tended to supply machines unpainted because of their superb, as-cast finish. All slides operate smoothly.
Included in the sale is a second Mikron miller and a horizontal-type headstock. The headstock is fitted with epicyclic, slow-speed back gearing - the normal engagement pin is cut with a rack and operated by a small shaft with a pinion cut on its outer end. However, this is missing - but it works just as well with a plain pin pushed in and out. This machine is also in good condition but has one or two 'scuff' marks on the table and lacks the gib keys on two of the axes. These are identical with those on the other machine so they can be used as patterns for making replacements. This second machine is not fitted with stops so may be an earlier version. On the main machine the gibs will need adjusting, having been dismantled for moving. A countershaft will be needed and I had in mind making one using some Myford ML7 countershafts parts I have - but as I do not have the time these parts will be included if required. There is also a flat-belt pulley that can be adapted. £1750 Please email for more details Pictures of the Mikron millers for sale here and details of Mikron Milling machines here

For Sale: Axminster Excalibur EX 21 Trade Series Scroll Saw In as-new, hardly-used condition and unused for the last five years, due to the demise of the previous owner. This 535 mm. (21") capacity saw is the mid-range model within the Axminster "Trade Series" and has some really interesting features not found on any other machine.
Heavily built from mainly plate steel, it has a 7 mm thick, heavy-gauge table with an epoxy-painted surface. The blade actuating arms are very short and driven by a lever-and-rod mechanism giving very precise control of the blade - plus exceptionally low vibration. The whole arm assembly tilts 45 degrees right and 35 degrees left, leaving the table horizontal so allowing much better control of the job, greater visibility and being able to work from a more comfortable, natural position. Variable-speed control from 400 - 1500 strokes per minute and features "Pegas" blade-chuck clamps - these being lighter so further reducing vibration. Blade changing is quick, easy and tool free. The saw has a built-in air blower and efficient dust extraction. Weight 29.5 kg. Overall Size L x W x H 812 mm. x 380 mm. x 387 mm.
Offered at £395, a saving of over £300 on current replacement cost. Phone: 01206-304460 (Brightlingsea, Essex) Pictures of the Axminster EX21 Scroll saw for sale here and the maker's sales page here

Of course, on a lathe of this age, there paint chips, it's weeping a little oil and there is some wear and tear - however the operation of the machine in unaffected and it works perfectly. I have cleaned out all the sumps and changed and added the correct specification oil. Includes the original coolant pump that I've not tested. I'm only selling due to space restrictions (no room) and I will be sorry to see this superb lathe go. Viewing welcome and can be seen powered up and running.

An ideal lathe for the smaller workshop and in full working order - you are very welcome to try it out. I've owned this lovely machine for over 35 years and the only reason for selling is downsizing. I have an engine crane and can assist with loading. £375 Phone: 07807-311692 Pictures of the Ehrlich lathe for sale here and details of Ehrlich Lathes here (my lathe is also shown on that page)

SOLD: a wonderful Ames "Triplex" Multi-function Machine Tool. Built in the United States by the Ames Company - well known for their high-precision machine tools - the design of the "Triplex" is unique - enabling it to be used as milling machine, co-ordinate driller, horizontal borer and lathe. Very expensive when new - the price of a Chevy Roadster or three South Bend lathes - a few example were imported into Great Britain during WW2 and sent to experimental stations and (at least one) to the British Tabulating Company (BTM) - makers of the mechanical "Bombes" used in the Colossus computer at Bletchley Park during WW2. Mounted on the maker's cast-iron stand this example is long-term unused and in need of simple recommissioning.

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).

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

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
