SOLD: Holbrook "Edgar" 5 inch x 21 inch backgeared and screwcutting lathe with swing bed and a built-on overhead countershaft unit.
As part of my exercise in preparing to downsize for health reasons I have to let this go. It was designed by Edgar Holbrook, hence its name, and manufactured at the Holbrook works in London. Designed to incorporate most standard features of lathes of the period plus a variety of novel ideas it was launched in 1923. Its high cost limited sales which ceased in the early 1930s--hence it's a reasonably rare machines compared with others of similar vintage. Full details at http://www.lathes.co.uk/edgar/  The most interesting feature is the separate swivelling front bed that carries the saddle and works as a built-in taper-turning attachment for long tapers ; the headstock and tailstock are mounted on the conventional fixed bed at the rear. The lathe has unusually large handwheels with easy-to-read micrometer graduations engraved on the edges. The graduated leadscrew handwheel is 8 inches diameter. Since acquiring it I have slightly modified the drive and fitted a new 3-jaw chuck but it's otherwise as it came. All the cosmetic work had been done and the spindle bearings are in good order.  I have used it little, mainly for making 2-Morse taper tooling, but it performs well and is very rigid as might be judged from the heavy proportions of the topslide. There is some backlash on the feedscrews (but then so does my Myford and one learns to live with it!). This lathe is one of few to survive complete with its overhead countershaft supports - these are very substantial and need a headroom of 2.15 metres (7 ft) - but that could be reduced by around 12 inches by shortening the belt and the support columns. (it is shown temporarily standing on wooden blocks). All this ruggedness makes it rather heavy, possibly in the region of 350 Kg. It has a drawer built in which carries the change wheels, a brand new 3-jaw chuck, backplate for a 4-jaw and a second backplate or catchplate; tailstock chuck. 1-phase electrics. A thoroughly useable and very interesting lathe. £550 Pictures of the Edgar lathe for sale here and details of Edgar lathes here
