See all ads from Ashley Slater
Details:
HI I am in need of the rack that forms part of the table raising and lowering mechanism on a Meddings pillar drill. This is the mechanism that sits below the table not the one that is built into the table but I would assume all Meddings drills use the same rack. I have asked Meddings by the way and await answer but as far as I could see it wasn't in their list of spares. Failing that some help in measuring the rack I have so I can see if it is a stock item elsewhere or even attempt to make one. I am at a bit of a loss on how to work out the pitch accurately.I'm sure its easy but just cant see it.

For Sale: Milnes Treadle Lathe - Metal and Wood Turning

Fri 11th Jul '14

Advert ID: 20009

Tools
Details:
This is an excellent lathe which is considered to be the culmination of design and experience in the traditional small English foot lathe. The making and details of this lathe are well documented in Hasluck's Metal Working (1912).
Back geared with gap piece, 4" centre height and 20" between centres. Slide rest and the T-rest is an excellent design that can enables the rest to be rapidly moved and locked with one handle. 3 jaw chuck, two backplates and driving chucks and centres. Horn handles to the slide rest winches. Steel-on-steel cone headstock bearings. Round leather belt will be supplied as will a photocopy of the Hasluck chapter.
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.
It has seen some good service with me in the last few years, and for most of it's life was owned by two medical doctors who used it to restore cars.
The lathe is currently disassembled, and experience is that this can be moved in the back of a car - I will help with loading.

Information: Key dimensions - M&W Toolmakers cabinet

Wed 9th Jul '14

General
Details:
I've just acquired a M&W toolmakers cabinet - but like many it is missing the key.
The cabinet dates from c.1950's, and the lock is a Yale (marked TLB 197) - as pictured.
Does anyone have a similar cabinet (with key!) who would be kind enough to send me a photo or sketch of the key with major dimensions - so I can source or make a new key?
Thank you.

Hi, does anyone have an original Phase II toolpost of the wedge type in size AXA for sale in the UK? With or without tool holders but needs to be in good condition. My Chinese copy of the piston type version just went 'Pete Tong' so i am guessing the way to go is the original American one instead of a blacksmithed copy.

This is another long shot.
I am looking for the little right angle gearbox that is fitted to the left side of the knee of a Victoria mill, this is used to take the feed drive from the shaft in the main column to the knee, it is about 4" or so square and has an oil sight glass on it.
Mine was damaged by a previous owner and has been repaired. So do you know of one of these machines waiting to be scrapped or just lying behind a factory some where.
I did say it was a long shot!

I would also consider a complete three phase Mardrive unit.

For Sale: Tom Senior M1

Tue 8th Jul '14

Advert ID: 19976

Tools
Details:
Tom Senior M1 Milling Machine, Complete with both vertical head and horizontal overarm/arbor. very nice original condition rather than tarted up to sell. I'm assuming original paint. Iv'e owned it for around 20 years. came out of a sewing factory, so not done any serious work.

Clarkeson Autolock chuck with a few collets and chuck spanner. 3 phase motor. I ran it from a rotary converter, but it would be easy enough to fit a single phase motor or inverter drive. Belts could probably do with a change, although they do run ok. Everything works as it should.

There are a couple of small witness marks on the bed, no more than a few thou deep, and don't affect the accuracy or usability in any way.

Very reluctant sale, but space dictates that it has to go. Collection only, easy enough to move with a van or small trailer. Open to reasonable offers.

For Sale: Brown Sharp Series No10 Precision Grinder

Tue 8th Jul '14

Advert ID: 19975

Tools
Details:
Anyway! The machine came to me with another Precision Grinder and I obviously dont need two. I knew immediately that this Brown Sharp machine was cosmeticaly grubby although mechanicaly is 100% with no play in the surfaces or ways and the spindle bearings are tight and smooth. So I decided to spend 5days completely stripping and rebuilding this machine.
The only downside to this machine is the fact it has a piece broken off the top work surface. You can see in the picture its the far left piece of the tray which is solely used to hold bits and pieces, exactly the same as the opposite side. IT doesnt affect the machines use in any way whatsoever, its merely a tray to hold bits and pieces.
It is in really good condition and has cleaned up and repainted a treat. The ways are smooth and have no wear at all.
These precision grinders really are a very versatile piece of kit. Just what you want to smooth grind finish surfaces onto work pieces or for precisiely grinding HSS Steel or Carbide/Tungsten tooling?
This machine has a 3/4hp 3phase motor and I am guessing the majority of those interested would require a 240volt household motor. Well they are a very easy replacement, just get another motor and bolt it in place onto the motor platform with 4 bolts, thats it...
