SOLD: an original Adept No.1 hand-operated shaping machine - a machine that has seen a very sheltered life and dates from the period 1935 to around 1960. The whole unit has been stripped down, the sliding surfaces polished to ensure smooth action and then lubricated with the correct slideway oil. Considering the original cost, they were very well made and now represent a fascinating introduction to the art of the hand-operated shaper in a compact form. Table 4 x 5 inches, ram travel 4 inches and a down feed of about 2 inches. The clapper box rotates each way about 40 degrees from the vertical. A big advantage over the Alexander and Robblak hand shapers is that the working surface can easily be raised or lowered to accommodate jobs of a different height. £195 Phone: 07522-194210 (Thetford, Norfolk) Pictures of the Adept No.1 shaper for sale here and details of Adept shapers here

SOLD: Champion Miniature Drilling Machine. A 1/4-inch capacity bench drill in good working and cosmetic condition. The originally painted parts have been stripped down, painted in a zinc-rich primer and top coated in a green gloss. The whole unit has been cleaned, adjusted and then greased prior to re-assembly. The drilling table is very clean, showing a few minor dings, so I suspect the drill has seen little use. The drill chuck and key appear to be original and have been manufactured by Almond of Conn. USA .  All that's needed to complete the drill are a small fractional motor - one from a sewing machine is often used on this type of machine - and a round belt (this can be ordered here) £125 Phone: 07522-194210 (Thetford, Norfolk) Pictures of the Champion drill for sale here and details of these useful little drills can be found here

SOLD

The vertical movements are two-fold: by the head slide and lifting the table. The spindle takes 10 mm Pultra collets held with the included drawbar. Fitted with a powerful but compact variable-speed DC motor that is easily positioned for both vertical and horizontal modes. Reconditioned and in full working order and ready to use. £1750.

The changewheel bracket is fitted but there are no changewheels - but these are often available second-hand or even new from Myford and can be fitted to the later and much improved ML7 studs. Unused for may years the lathe could be used as-is--or would make an ideal restoration project. £225 Pictures of the Myford ML2 lathe for sale here and details of Myford ML2 lathes here

In excellent order and mounted neatly on a drawer cabinet (an ex-Edison radio cabinet!) containing the variable-speed drive power pack for the main motor and the power supply for the sensitive drilling attachment. The drawer is fitted to hold the supplied dividing head, vice and sensitive drilling attachment, etc. Table size  200mm x 50mm,  X travel  105mm,  Y travel  55mm,  Z travel  95mm, max under Quill  95mm, spindle speed variable  0 to 9000 r.p.m. The spindle and dividing head take standard clockmaker's collets and the drilling attachment compliments most 50 to 70mm centre height lathes - I have used it in my Pultra to drill radial holes in venturi jets. £1600 Pictures of the Stevens high-precision milling machine here

SOLD
: Myford ML2 lathe 3.125" x 15" gap-bed, backgeared and screwcutting. This is a late-model example with tumble-reverse to the leadscrew drive and a changewheel guard. The lathe is complete with the genuine and very effective self-contained, bench-mount  countershaft unit with a swing head - this allowing the belt tension to be set exactly - and a single-phase motor. Also included is the correct Myford swivelling milling slide and a 3-jaw chuck. The changewheel bracket is fitted but there are no changewheels - but these are often available second-hand or even new from Myford and can be fitted to the later and much improved ML7 studs. Unused for may years the lathe could be used as-is--or would make an ideal restoration project. £225 Pictures of the Myford ML2 lathe for sale here and details of Myford ML2 lathes here

SOLD
: An exceptional Lilian Model 3-VH all-metric, Bridgeport-type, ram-head milling machine which has been in my home workshop for 18 years. Built in 1999, the miller was first owned by a medical research company from whom I purchased it when they closed. Since then, as I spend long periods overseas,  the miller has had only occasional and light use and I am now selling all my larger machines prior to moving house. Built by Lilian Industrial (www.Lilian.com.tw) the 3-VH is in current production, of the Bridgeport pattern and, at 1250 kg, more heavily constructed. With a powerful 3 h.p., 3-phase motor (more than a Bridgeport could safely handle) it has wonderful metal-removing ability with the vari-speed drive giving speeds from 120 to 4200 r.p.m. The 50" x 10" table bears not a single tool mark, has a maximum loading of 600 Kgs and power feed on both the X and Y axis (an absolute boon to people such as myself with 'dodgy' backs!) The head 'nods' +/- 45 degrees and rotates effectively through 180 degrees each side from central. Included is a coolant system, work light and DROs fitted to the quill and both table travels (the latter being a high-quality Mitutoyo DRO). The machine is accurate, quiet in operation and comes with original manuals, test report and wiring diagrams. The machine is currently run from a rotary converter which can be made available at additional cost if needed. Access for machine removal is good. I would be pleased to consider a part exchange against a really good small vertical or universal mill such as a Senior Mi with 'E' head. Pictures of the Lilian 3-VH milling machine for sale here.

SOLD in immaculate condition and with a wide range of accessories: an Adcock and Shipley 1ES vertical and horizontal milling machine: this is a top-of-the-range model factory fitted with a Bridgeport "J-Type" ram-type, swivelling vertical head with speeds from 67 to 4600 r.p.m. The head has both power down-feed and hand-driven fine and rapid action feeds. Included with the head is the Bridgeport special right-angle adapter and some cutter arbours. The miller has power feed to the 30" x 8" table at rates from 0.24 to 1 mm per resolution of the spindle - the table feeds screws and dials being metric. An Accurite III digital readout is fitted and works on all three axes. The miller has centralised lubrication to the 1ES part of the machine.
Included are all the essential parts and useful accessories: a number of 40 INT horizontal milling arbours and the drop-bracket support (I've never used the miller in the horizontal mode, but have used one previously and, in the slow-speed backgear, are capable of serious metal removal); a range of R8 tooling and collets to fit the Bridgeport spindle, including a nearly new Clarkson type small Autolock collet chuck with metric and imperial collets and a light unit; a good quality but not named, 6-inch diameter rotary table with 4 'T' slots. The table has had a new cursor fitted at the front for easier reading against the degree scale and has been set so that, at 0, the 'T' slots are parallel to the x and y axes. I also had a mounting plate made, surface ground parallel, to raise the rotary table so that the handle cleared the DRO reader on the front edge of the table. An Astra-branded tilting dividing head is also included; approximately 4-inch centre height and fitted with a 4-inch three-jaw chuck - the graduated plate behind the chuck has 36 holes (from memory) to allow simple dividing. It also has the sector arms and handle for compound dividing but I never got around the obtaining division plates. I'll also include a full set of T-nuts, levelling blocks, clamps and clamping bolts and studs.
There is some backlash on the feeds, but when taken up and the digital read out system re-set to zero it has never presented any problems (that's the advantage of a DRO). A second complete and functional Bridgeport head (minus down feed lever and handwheel) is also included--and ideal as source of spares. A very versatile miller, this ES is running on single-phase and so ideal for the smaller workshop. Only selling because the miller is now too large for the nature of the work I do. £2750
