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

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". For such a small lathe the use of an all-geared headstock is most unusual, though perhaps the degree of over engineering was to allow its use for some special purpose, possibly the turning of very hard materials. 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. Complete with: 3-jaw chuck, 4-jaw chuck and a faceplate. A bargain at just £50 Phone: 0208-866-9603 (Pinner) Pictures of the lathe for sale here and Futher details of the machine here.

SOLD (in 30 minutes…): Aciera F3 This is a later machine with the square-shape vertical head and also the extremely versatile (and essential) swivelling and tilting table. I have owned this machine for the past ten years and, during that time, it has always been kept in my heated workshop. The machine came to me with the original Brown Boveri two-speed 3-phase motor but, since I had no 3-ph supply at that time, I have always used it paired with a programmable Hitachi J100 inverter. This allows an infinitely-variable speed range with adjustable run up and run down and works so well that I have never bothered to convert it back - despite now having a 3-ph supply available. The table is very clean and almost unmarked and the horizontal overarm shows no sign of ever having been used. There is a horizontal arbor in new condition - as well as an unused stub arbor in the same condition. There is also a selection of collets. This is an extremely versatile, beautifully-made machine with a relatively small footprint and a low overall height. I have always kept it on a purpose made pallet to enable it to be moved around the workshop by a pallet truck. £1800 Pictures of the Aciera F3 for sale here and details of Aciera F3 millers here
