Wanted: Metal lathe for workshop / hobbyist

Wed 23rd Dec '20

Advert ID: 39172

Machines (Large Tooling)
I am setting up my workshop to keep me out of mischief in my retirement. I want a single phase metal lathe. I am torn between the functionality of a modern “Chinese” lathe and an older Myford type which is more substantial but possibly worn. Any lathe coming with lots of extras, tools, etc would be an advantage. My large workshop is at bottom of the garden so needs to be transported across grass which limits its size I suspect. . My priorities are as follows:

Essential Features 
 Tumble Reverse. Provision to fit T slotted cross slide. 
2 Morse taper in tailstock
. Set-over tailstock for taper turning
. Gearing to handle on apron traverse

Desirable Features. 
Quick-set or 4-way tool holder. 
Gap bed (up to 3.5"/90mm centre height)
. Dial-thread indicator for screwcutting
. Spindle lock to aid removal of chucks.
Automatic disengage to saddle drive
. Provision to mount collets
. Graduated tailstock barrel

Non-Essential but Useful Features.
Screwcutting gearbox. 
Power cross feed. 
Clutch to headstock spindle drive. 
1" (26mm) or larger hole through spindle. 
Coolant equipment
. Graduated handle to leadscrew end
. Availability of lever-action tailstock
. Electronic or mechanical variable-speed drive
