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.

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

SOLD: Antique clockmaker's wheel-cutting engine (22" x 12") complete with a range of cutters mounted on a solid wood board. The dividing plate is 12 inches in diameter and has 43 rings of detent holes. The cutter arbor can be angled or set level and be moved either up and down - via one lever -  or in and out via another: the result being an ability to cut straight or angled teeth. This is a versatile machine that would be either genuinely useful in a clock workshop (especially where large wheels up to 5.5 inches in diameter need to be made) or as a fine display piece in the window of a clock retailer. Very heavy, it stands 22 inches high so would be best collected.  £2750  Pictures of the wheel-cutting engine for sale here

: STB Precision Plain-turning bench lathe. Previously unknown as a make, this lathe is of very high quality construction, the equal of a Schaublin or Mikron - and probably dates from the late 1940s into the 1950s.

The headstock spindle takes standard Schaublin draw-in collets, the draw tube and a single collet with integral centre being present.
