For Sale: CNC machine

Sat 26th Jul '14

Advert ID: 20169

Tools
Details:
I'm moving house and need a little more cash so I'm putting my CNC machine for sale. This CNC machine is based on a TEP machine but was heavily modified. It is currently in storage at parents house as my workshop is packed away so I can not show it working however I recently used it to make a wooden clock.
Video here of the machine in action: http://youtu.be/jj0ECyCpG8M

I've braced the vertical columns quite low down which allowed me to mill aluminium and brass but limits z travel. I've used it to cross out brass clock wheels and even mill a small aluminium component.

The machine also did a fantastic job with a homemade drag engraver. Video attached: http://youtu.be/pJSLlZPUckI
The drag engraver and diamond tip is included.

The spindle is a brushless dc motor converted with er16 collet chuck. Full set or er16 Collets included. Other than using the drag engraver, I've used this spindle for all my cutting, wood, brass and aluminium and it runs just great and is a good size for the machine. Showing the modified DC motor, video here:
http://youtu.be/eZ3BzL82qNg

So it runs and I've used it on a few projects with good success as shown in the video. However, there are improvements that could be made.

Bad Bits:
The z axis needs looking at as there is bad backlash. Its fine for everything I do but it could be improved.
The machine is in my parents garage for storage for a house move so there is no way I can show it running.
There is a dedicated 12v high current supply for the spindle but modified computer ATX supplies for the main motors. These work fine but could do with be replaced by dedicated power supply units.
The PC is a nice computer with decent RAM and spec. I'd prefer it not to go with the sale but I can copy the mach3 settings for you. If you want the PC then I'd have to consider budgeting for a new workshop computer in the price!

All in all this is a nice little project machine, which runs well but would benefit from a few modifications and will need connecting up to the power supplies again. Ideal for someone looking to dip their toe into CNC!

Offers welcome. Any questions, just send me an email. Collection would be required from Bury, Manchester. I would be willing to meet within a reasonable distance to cover petrol as I'm off work for a weeks.

For Sale: Mill/Drill VERTICAL MILL, - Rong Fu

Fri 25th Jul '14

Advert ID: 20161

Tools
Details:
Selling my late fathers Vertical mill & stand.
This has been only used for about 4 hours in total and has been stored in a dry environment for a number of years. I have no space for it so it needs to go to a good home.

I believe it is a Rong Fu 31 (Although I cannot guarantee this is correct)

It would need disassembly to move which you will need to undertake this yourselves (please note it is VERY heavy - I'd expect 3 man lift minimum and a sack barrow / pallet truck would be needed to move it).

Viewing welcome by appointment call the # shown
any questions please call & I'll endeavour to answer to the best of my ability

For Sale: Watchmaking by George Daniels

Thu 24th Jul '14

Advert ID: 20154

Books/Magazines
Details:
This is the 1985 reprint of the 1981 original; published by Sotheby's.
The book is in excellent condition, the dust jacket is very good with a little scruffiness round the top edges.
ISBN is 0-86667-150-9
404 pages, plus index.
If you're a watchmaker or repairer, you'll know of this book, if not then think of Daniels as the George Thomas of watchmaking, except he was a professional, not the very gifted amateur that GHT was.
The book weighs in (just) under the Post Office 2kg limit for small parcels, so might be able to pack and post for around £5 (it deserves careful packing) but I'd have to double-check.

Due to my recent purchase of a larger lathe, I need to move on my Raglan Littljohn Mk2 lathe with screwcutting gearbox. It had a complete strip down and rebuild about 6 years, and had new belts, layshaft bearings and thrust bearings fitted, so is in good shape. Its in current use, so is ready to work.
Its single phase, and comes with a TOS (they make Burnerd chucks under subcontract) 5" 3 jaw,(inc bothe sets of jjaws. a Burnerd 6" 4 jaw, faceplate, tailstock chuck, tailstock die holders and a couple of boxes of miscellaneous spares. Its on a Raglan steel stand, which is missing its doors, but I've never found that to be a problem. There are spare changewheels to allow metric threads to be cut as well as the standard imperial ones, and a 38T gear for cutting 19tpi pipe threads.Photos on request, because they too big for this site.

For Sale: Chester Mill

Tue 22nd Jul '14

Advert ID: 20123

Tools
Details:
Chester mill on stand is fitted with a three phase motor and an inverter which gives variable speed. I am not sure if the stand is a makers stand or was made for the lathe. The mill has a small foot print and would fit well on to a sturdy bench, if you did not want to use the stand that is with it.

The mill has not had a lot of work but it is dirty and needs a good clean. There is a drill chuck and an ER collet chuck with the mill. After a good clean and perhaps a coat of paint it would be a grand machine.

While the mill is not heavy it is a fair lump, The mill is being sold cheaply as I need the space. If you are interested I will send pictures which are too big to be uploaded on to the advert.

I would prefer collection.

For Sale: Boxford CUD lathe

Tue 22nd Jul '14

Details:
Boxford CUD lathe. I bought this lathe from a school workshop about 8 years ago and since then it has had no work at all. It has been converted to 240v ie plugs into a normal 13 amp socket.

With the lathe there is; three jaw chuck, four jaw chuck, fixed and travelling steadies, and a box of change wheels. The lathe needs a good clean and a polish, but is I believe in good condition. The tail stock nose lock is missing.

At the moment the lathe body is resting on the stand, for the photo, and the drive belt is disconnected, for easy loading and transport.

I am asking £375 for the lathe as I need the space in the workshop, which you will understand if you could see the workshop.....I would prefer collection

Mon 21st Jul '14

Advert ID: 20115

Tools
Details:
1946 31/2" centre height approx 12" between centres. Part finished restoration project. Complete with change wheels, 4 jaw chuck, face plate, a seized 3 jaw chuck, spare chuck back plate which looks as if someone has put a welder to so may or may not be any good. Untested motor that needs rewiring. What I think is affixed steady. There are a couple of minor chips to the outer edge of the lathe bed at the tailstock end and a bit of pitting in the lathe bed at the chuck end. This was caused by the saddle having seized whilst in previous ownership. This lathe is as ebayers describe it as a barn find. It spent about 30 years or so in a damp garage belonging to the neighbour of my in laws. Some of the parts have been shot blasted and these do retain some minor rust damage, particularly the faceplate which has some rust pitting although if you got it surface ground it would be much improved. The lathe bed, etc have been repainted. For more info look at lathes.co.uk

Looking for offers around two hundred and fifty if that sounds reasonable. This is based on what they go for on ebay . any questions please ask will email photos Asian have problems up loading photos to this site. Buyer to collect

I bought this to use many years ago, and this is what is left, no longer needed. It is military specification, I used to have the release notes but long gone, seamless thin wall stainless tube. It is all in a very soft temper, easily bent, and creased, by hand.

Exactly how much of each size, and the maximum length I don't know, ask if important. Also the posting lengths over 90cm isn't possible by Post Office. I am quite happy to post, cost about £5-8 or so.

This tube was bought to telescope inside each other. With some jiggery pokery to swage the stop rings etc I could make telescopic protection tubes, but not easy. In the end gave up and this stock has rested on a rack on the garage wall ever since.

I also have some thicker material which started life as hydraulic tubes for the Harrier. This is about 3/8" diameter but no idea of wall thickness, ask if interested.

Information: Audmann coil winding machine

Mon 21st Jul '14

Advert ID: 20104

General
Details:
This is a long shot but I've acquired a Audmann coil winding machine type WU with the DF47M layer winding gear (LWG). Unfortunately the wire guide arrangement for the LWG is missing and although I have some pictures and the manual for the machine there is insufficient detail for me to make replacement parts. So I'm hoping someone has one of these machines who could provide me with more detailed pics and measurements of the parts.

Also the foot control unit was missing which has the speed control electronics for the brushed DC motor. Instead of trying to find an orphan controller I elected to change the motor for a 3 phase induction type and have managed to fit an inverter into the base of the machine. So if anyone wants a spare motor I have one. Also I can't work out where the spool of wire would be mounted.

Any help would be gratefully received.
