: 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. Pictures of the Mikron millers for sale here and  details of Mikron Milling machines here

Any offer considered. Pictures of the Colchester Master 2500 lathe and surface plate for sale here and details of Colchester Master 2500 lathes here

SOLD: CVA Type 79 Vertical Milling Machine - refurbished. I have spent a considerable amount of time on this high-quality machine tool. Everything has been apart and thoroughly cleaned and stripped followed by a full repaint in grey cellulose. The slides are good and everything moves like it should with a solid feel. The 3 h.p. NECO flange-mount motor has been overhauled: cleaned internally with re-insulated windings, new bearings and the alloy pulleys repaired. In addition all the electrics have been overhauled with new wiring a period MEM safety, no-volt-release switch with a Radette isolator switch and the correct galvanised and corrugated wiring tubes.
The quill has been fully reworked with the bearing surface on the mandrel ground true and hard-chrome plated to restore the original dimensions. The quill bush has been reground in the bore to bring everything back within tolerance. Even the "worsted trimmings" within the quill that feed the bearing through wicks have been replaced correctly and the system works perfectly. The oil is wicked through the bearing and caught below in a can for re-use. I've also made the correct spindle end nut/drawbar thrust washer and compensating spring- items often missing on these millers. 
Equipment includes an Abwood vice with soft jaws, a brand-new, old-stock 3 Morse taper Clarkson Autolock chuck and a 3 Morse taper ABC precision boring head. Ready to run and do good work again. £650 Pictures of the CVA Type 79 milling machine for sale here and details of CVA millers here

: 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
