A Crabtree contactor / starter with isolating switch.

It has a cable outlet fitting at the bottom and a hole at the back. It is rated at 4.2 amps from what I can see. It has a cast iron casing so is quite heavy. It is also advertised elsewhere so subject to removal without notice.

For Sale: LeBlond Lightweight 10" lathe

Sat 29th Aug '15

Advert ID: 24259

Tools
Details:
Up for sale is my LeBlond lightweight 10" lathe which although not a lot bigger than the standard Myford it is vastly better specified.
The headstock is oil filled and houses an 8 speed spindle gearbox selectable with two external levers, so no belt changes for spindle speeds.
It also has a modified oiling system which ensures a constant flow of clean oil to the spindle bearings which are in very good condition.

it has a 48 ratio quickchange gearbox
which drives separate feed and threading
screw/shafts which in turn have their own gear ratios selectable from the apron.
All gears and shafts are in very good condition devoid of any chipped or broken teeth or excessive wear.
The bed and slideways are in good condition with minimal wear.
The lathe motor is integral with the bed so the lathe can be bench mounted.
Please note this sale is for the lathe only it does not include the chip tray or cabinet.
The mounting footprint size is approx. 42"x12" and overall length is 50" and width 18" so it will easily fit in a medium sized estate for transport.
All in all this is an ideal modellers lathe or light jobbing tool but please bear in mind it is over 60 years old and
should not be regarded as perfect, so it will have the odd defect but nothing that prevents from running as it should do.

I feel I should warn sellers about potential buyers who want to pay by cheque.

Cheques do not fully clear until 6 working days after payment into your bank. Even if your account is credited and you withdraw cash, the banks have the righr to claw the money back off you until after the 6 working days have elapsed.

A further check if you have doubts is that when you pay a cheque into your bank you ask them to scan the cheque to see if it is genuine. I recently received a cheque which had been printed by the fraudster - it was not even from a stolen cheque book.

Names to watch out for are Jack Maynard, John Muir, Paul Scott and Marcus Lorenzo

For Sale: Burnerd Multisize chuck

Wed 26th Aug '15

Advert ID: 24225

Tools
Details:
Burnerd type EC multisize collet chuck with a full set of 12 collets (1/16 - 1.5"). The chuck is in immaculate condition and comes with the correct chuck key. Most of these chucks have an integral, specific lathe fitting but this one takes a backplate so can fit any lathe.
The collets are all in reasonable condition - most are very good but a couple show signs of wear - I put the set together from purchases at the Harrogate Model show tool stands. The collet box in the photo is not included as I need it for my own set. The dealers charge £25 per collet so there's £300 of collets here alone.
It's pretty heavy so collection would be best but can pack up if necessary.
