Details:
A Hvilans mek Verkstads AB of Sweden 300mm rotary table. I bought this only recently and, while it is a superb piece of kit that would cost many £££ when new, it is REALLY HEAVY.

A friend has since sold me his 10" table which is a bit lighter so I will sell on the bigger one. No marks and as good a make as you could wish for.

Needs to be collected from Suffolk IP13 or you to arrange your own courier (I estimate the weight at around 50kg)

I can get a pallet and put it on if necessary but clearly collection is the easiest option.

Any questions please ask?

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.

Thu 24th Jul '14

These came out of a box marked fusee chains, so that's what they must be, right?
They're grubby and tangled. Some are just odd bits, some longer lengths. They're from a deceased watch and clock repairer's workshop. Are there any long enough bits to be useful? You tell me.
Open to offers. easy to post. (I will try to untangle them, but not clean them.
The photos show the assortment and a close up of one of the thicker ones.

Bits of wood, brass etc. they look like the makings of a very small carriage clock case.

Various odds and ends of fine polishing powders.

Details:
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.

Tools
See all ads from Richard Wilson
Details:
This is the basic Centec 2 mill, (the belt drive one, not the later geared drive 2A or 2B) It has no vertical head or horizontal overarm, and is just the basic mounting plate for bench fixing, main casting with shaft and bearings, knee, cross slide and table, complete with feedscrews, nuts and handles. The table is 16" x 41/4" which according to the http://www.lathes.co.uk site, is the same as the later 2A, and looks in pretty good shape. Whats there seems in good nick and it would be a shame to scrap it.
