For Sale: Milnes 4" centre height gap bed lathe for wood and metal tur

Sat 28th Feb '15

Advert ID: 22228

Tools
Details:
This is the final development of the English treadle driven lathe as described in detail, with drawings, by Hasluck (a copy of the section of this book will be provided). 20" between centres, backgeared headstock with through bore. Gap bed with insert so that you can securely position the T-rest or compound slide close to the spindle nose, compound slide rest and T-rest. The T-rest is a really good design that is locked and unlocked by a handle.
The lathe comes with centres, drive dog, catch plate, 3 jaw and two chuck back plates. A drive pulley has been added to the tailstock end of the drive that can be used to drive the lathe by an electric motor, or run an auxiliary machine.
The lathe was owned by two doctors who used it for vintage car restoration. They were so impressed with the lathe that it travelled with them to Ireland and then back again to Yorkshire, where it was purchased from their decedents.
This lathe is currently disassembled in convenient pieces for transport.

Dear sir,
Your little scam has been uncovered and no one on this site is interested in dealing with you.

So with no more further ado, please piss off and haunt someone else.

If you do insist of following up on adverts that everyone is aware are scams could you please send us a current photograph so we can send it to the British Transport Police to stick up in the toilets at Kings Cross Railway station instead of those rather drab little AIDS notices they have in there.

Hopefully it will brighten someone's day up.

Now have a nice day and piss off !!

This is T8 - 10 HP/7.5 Kw converter which will power any machine including cnc machines. All SMP rotary converters are CE marked and comply with EU legislation. This Rotary Converter has had very little use. It is working perfectly. It has been used to power a Bridgeport Interact 412 VMC and a Colchester Master Lathe. I no longer have any use for this Converter as I have now moved from my garage to an industrial unit which has a 3 Phase supply. Due to weight of this unit - it would need to be collected. Thank you very much for looking

For Sale: Quick change tool post and holders for Myford Super 7

Tue 24th Feb '15

Advert ID: 22191

Tools
Details:
A custom made system designed and made by myself consisting of a 26 mm diameter post that fits onto a Super 7 cross slide in place of the top slide providing a much more ridged platform for the 5 purpose made tool holders. This post has a substantial base ring for the height adjusting screws of the various tool holders to but against and to enable them to be rotated through 360 degrees if required. The tool holders are each fitted with height adjusters and indexable handles for quick clamping see photos. The holders are substantially made and vary a bit in design according to the material that I had available at the time and for the particular application I had in mind. One will take 8mm tool bits, three will take 10 mm and one will take 17mm tools. Two are extended reach to accommodate boring tools. The whole lot weigh 3.5 Kg.

For Sale: Taylor Hobson Pantograph Engraver

Mon 23rd Feb '15

Advert ID: 22183

Tools
Details:
I have an engraver (Model C I think), which I purchased to cut out brass components for small scale models, but never got around to using it. It's been say in my garage for at least 10 years and I've now decided I'll never use it.

I've never had power on it ( 3 phase motor) , but I was assured by the previous seller that it does work. It's branded 'War Finish', so I would be inclined to fit a new motor as the existing one is likely to be 60+ years old.

Two sets of copy are included, assorted clamps and and around 10 cutters, some of which are unused.

The table is clean and the slides are all smooth.

Its heavy, but can be handled by two people and will fit into an estate car if split in half.

It needs a new set of belts, as the previous keeper was a boat enthusiast and made his own from fine rope.

I can email pictures on request.
