For Sale: 1/6 scale copy of a Barnes No.13 backgeared and screwcutting lathe. This superb example of the model-makers' art was built eight years ago by top machinist (Al Osterman -now deceased). There are only a few machine models built by Al, every one of the highest quality, with his background and machines featured in The Internet Craftsmanship Museum. He only sold on consignment, and estimated a one-year delivery for the lathe shown - I was offered a rare opportunity to purchase the lathe, the only finished machine in his shop. Price was based upon 750 hours of his time which, in 2012, was $12.50 per hour. I don't know how many lathes he made but, based upon our conversations and Alfred's declining health, I would estimate at fewer than five. Alfred made every part of this lathe himself and was proud that he used only iron and steel in its construction to honor the original Barnes 13 - an example of which had owned and used for accurate dimensions.

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 as no two surviving Centecs seem to be exactly the same - to be sure that you get back exactly what you need.
