SOLD: Axminster MB9020 Bench Top Planer/Thicknesser. The machine is new and unused and only for sale due to the demise of the owner some five years ago.

SOLD: 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.

SOLD: 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).
