SOLD: Juvenia Precision Bench lathe 4" x 20" One of the more exclusive, very high quality Swiss-made precision plain turning lathes, this example is fitted with changewheel-driven "Chase screwcutting". I bought this as a 'project' but, as I already have too many, its never likely to be finished.
The bed has two inverted 'V's' and vertical flat face with, unusually, full-length 'T' slots at both the front and rear to mount accessories. The headstock has a 4-step pulley to take a wider-than-usual flat belt. The rear face of the large pulley having two rows of 'division' holes which are engaged by an adjustable pin. The spindle nose is threaded for a chuck and bored to accept collets. A chuch backplate is supplied, but no collets. The left-hand end of the spindle is fitted with a gear to drive a thread chasing attachment. The cross slide is of the "toolmaker" type with screw-feeds, metric micrometer dials, a swivelling top slide and an "American" adjustable toolpost.The leading edge corner has the usual marks from the chuck being run into it...T he tailstock has a metric ruler-graduated barrel and is clamped to the bed by a lever operating an eccentric 'T' bolt.The thread-chasing attachment (details of this high-precision system here) bears a remarkable similarity to that found on American Cataract lathes and is mounted on the rear vertical face of the bed. As with the Cataract device, the buttress-thread 'feedscrew' has its own thread hob built-in so new thread followers can be cut when needed. Included are a number of change wheels, a few with chipped or missing teeth. £475 or offers. Pictures of the Juvenia lathe for sale here and details of Juvenia lathes here

Rivett die holder, Lorch Schmidt Universal head, assortment of 12 Rivett collets some include screw type collets for mounting gear cutters, etc., assortment of hand-filing rest cutters, Rivett centres, counter-bore cutters, demurring tools. etc., pivot drills, box of gear cutters, extra pulleys, a set of staking tools by "Star", two tool rests and other watchmaking tools.

Six batches of the Model C were made, in lots of one-hundred, the lathe shown having a serial number that places it amongst the last made in batch No. 5 at some point between 1905 and 1907.

: 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

: a very rare 6 mm Lorch watchmakers lathe in its original nickel-plate finish and complete with the special maker's wall cabinet (43 x 35 x 15.5 cm) with lock and key - it appears to be a version of the "Triumph" Combination V1 as shown in older Lorch catalogues.

: "Myford ML7RB 3.5" x 19" gap-bed, backgeared and fitted with a quick-change screwcutting gearbox, spindle clutch and the correct 3/4 h.p. single-phase motor. The ML7R was the result of Myford rationalising of production around just one design of bed, headstock and tailstock and was a Super 7 but with the ML7 cross and top slide unit - though this example has the longer of the two slides for that model and zeroing micrometer dials. Very well equipped with: Myford Imperial collet set, swivelling milling slide, milling slide vice, two independent 4-jaw chucks 6 and 4 inches in diameter, self-centering 4-jaw chuck, 4-inch 3-jaw chuck, 4-way indexing tool post, fixed steady, travelling steady, thread-dial indicator, graduated handle to leadscrew end, faceplate, spare chuck backplate, tailstock chucks, tailstock rotating centre, Morse taper centres, oil gun, spindle bearings C-spanner and the maker's instruction, maintenance and parts manual.
