For Sale: Milnes 4” centre height gap bed lathe

Sun 19th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23781

Tools
Details:
This is the final development of the English treadle driven lathe as described in detail, with drawings, by Hasluck (a copy of the section of this book will be provided). 20” between centres, backgeared headstock with through bore. Gap bed with insert so that you can securely position the T-rest or compound slide close to the spindle nose, compound slide rest and T-rest. The T-rest is a really good design that is locked and unlocked by a handle.
The lathe comes with centres, drive dog, catch plate, 3 jaw and two chuck back plates. 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.
The lathe was owned by two doctors who used it for vintage car restoration. They were so impressed with the lathe that it travelled with them to Ireland and then back again to Yorkshire, where it was purchased from their decedents.
This lathe is currently disassembled in convenient pieces for transport.

For Sale: Boxford 125 TCL CNC Benchtop Lathe

Wed 15th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23758

CNC
Details:
Boxford 125 TCL CNC Benchtop Lathe

In excellent fully working condition. Hardly used, recently removed from a school. Complete with rare indexing turret and original tooling. This has not been modified or messed with in any way. Was returned to Boxford for servicing and upgrading of drive systems during its time at the school.

No Boxford software but its common to convert to run using Mach3, Turbo CNC, EMC 2, Linux CNC, etc. if you're looking at this you'll know all about the software conversions, lots of information on line on how to do it.

I have powered it up and referenced it manually. All drives and axis move smooth and freely, the spindle runs nicely with no problems. This has computer controlled spindle speeds for optimum cutting during the cycle, no changing of belts needed to obtain different chuck speeds. This has hardly been used, judging by the condition and the fact the original tooling is still in place. The machine was bought new in 1998.

Prefer collection, but can bolt to a pallet for a courier if you want to arrange collection. Will fit in back of small hatchback easily. Cash on collection.

Thanks

Tue 14th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23748

Tools
Details:
This is (I think) the forerunner of the S-Type. Table is 25" x 6.25" (S is 27" long), everything else seems the same except colour (green, not yellow).

3-phase motor driven by Jaguar VFD (included in sale) with speed control.

Coolant pump fitted.
Footprint is about 750mm x 850mm over the drip tray and it stands about 1.8m high on its maker's welded steel base.

Currently fitted with ballscrews on x-y axes, originals available.

Quite a lot of assorted tooling avilable. Price negotiable depending on exactly what selection of bits and bobs are rquired. As a guide, for the mill, Osborne Titanic II chuck with inch and metric colletts, rotary table and vice, I'm looking for about £500.

Collection only.

The mill breaks down into head, table, cross-slide, knee, column and base. The bits are reasonably heavy. The catalogue I've got doesn't quote a weight but it came to me on a small (Transit-sized) truck. It isn't a back-of-a-small-hatchback item!

I can provide hi-res pictures of any particular bit of the beast on request.

For Sale: Lightweight 6" four jaw chuck

Sun 12th Jul '15

Tools
Details:
American made 4 jaw chuck with unusual
hexagon key jaw screw operation.
It is lightweight (2" wide) and comes with a 1.5" BSF threaded backplate and
chuck key.
It is fair to say that the jaws are not as good as they should be and as such
I think the chuck would be better suited
for woodwork than engineering, but it does function ok.

For Sale: Fully equipped Drummond 3 ½ inch flat bed lathe.

Wed 8th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23704

Tools
Details:
Fully equipped Drummond 3 ½ inch flat bed lathe.
This is a remarkable and rare early model in excellent condition with many additions. Treadle operated from new and has never been motorised. I have owned this lathe for 30 odd years and have used it to make many parts for stationary engines, a James Coombs, a Stuart No 4 variant, S 50 and other models together with all sorts of workshop items. I am reluctantly parting with it as in recent years I have inherited two modern lathes and I am getting rather ancient myself. It is very accurate and a pleasure to use – a Gentleman’s lathe.

Lots of detailed photos available by email.

I have fitted resettable index dials, of generous size, to the cross slide, lead screw and the tail sock. Equipment included is :
TOS 4 inch 3 jaw chuck with both sets of jaws and a key.
4 ½ inch 4 jaw chuck and key purchased from Graham Engineering Birmingham
¼ inch Sphere brand British made drill chuck and key, mounted on a No 1 Morse arbor.
Two face plates 8 inch and 6 inch diameter
Quick change tool post with 4 holders and a fixed steady made by myself.
A hand turning rest.
No 1 Morse centres one hard and one soft. Lathe carrier.
Fitted with a round polyurethane drive belt (RS part No. 701-0596) and 3.2 metres of spare unused belt plus fasteners.
3 indexing fixtures for use with change wheels.
20 change wheels that enable a full range of imperial threads from 4 to 60 TPI, Metric threads from 0.5 to 3.5mm pitch and BA threads from 0 to10
Comprehensive laminated gear set-up charts for each range.
I have retained the original hand wheels and other bits replaced by modern items so the lathe could be put back to its near original 1902 condition for the purest. See details on the lathes.co.uk web site.
This lathe has proved to be especially good for turning castings (in back gear) and for screw cutting due to the total speed control provided by the treadle drive.
This is wonderful machine that that comes with all that is really needed for model engineering projects and has many years of useful life in it. It is NOT FREE despite the Free in the advert which will not allow the word offers!
Please email me for more detailed photographs of the lathe and all additional items or give me a call and I will tell you all about it.

Information: Hilger and Watts

Tue 7th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23702

Hello All.
I have been given a Hilger and Watts precision spirit level. It's 8" long and graduated to .0005" in 10". I have managed to set my lathe bed 'horizontal' by adjusting the machine leveling screws and rotating the spirit level through 180 degrees to obtain the best average reading.The bubble is quite central, but I can't get it absolutely spot on.

So, I have a few questions, if anyone could help.
I've got the bed horizontal (I'm not too bothered about bed twist at this stage, I'll use Rollys Dads method later) by turning the spirit level through 180 degrees as I adjust the machine feet.
Is this the correct way to get something level?

There are two adjustment screws on the front side and underside of the level.I suspect the screws have been fiddled with. If I get the lathe as horizontal as I can, and then 'adjust' the setting screws to get the bubble as central as possible.
Is this the way to 'calibrate' the spirit level?

Is this level (0.0005 in 10") too accurate/sensitive for setting up a lathe?

Does anyone know when Hilger and Watts stopped manufacture?

Any advice, or better still a scan of a Hilger Watts process/instruction sheet,much appreciated.

Cheers, guys. Many thanks.

Tue 7th Jul '15

Advert ID: 23696

Tools
See all ads from Ashley Slater
Details:
I was planning to put this on Ebay but thought I'd try here first. This is the industrial size deWalt Radial Arm saw. 3.0 Kw (4hp) 3 phase motor and a 14 inch blade giving you the ability to cross cut 4" thick timber. I have a small deWalt but this is a much heavier built machine my 125 has 3 bearings in the sliding mechanism this has 8. All the settings for fine adjustment are micro adjustable so you can set it up perfectly. All the usual refinements. No legs or table but easy to make. It comes with a 3 phase control box (not pictured) start/stop NVR switches and thermal trips which could easily be siamesed to a stop start on the arm of the machine, I can help if you wish. Box has outlet for dustcollector as well. The small toggle switch on the motor is disconnected its purpose was to allow continuous or intermittant running via a button in the handle which is not present. You could just about run this on an inverter from a 16 or 20A single phase supply that would give you better blade stop times as well. I have tested the motor on an inverter and its runs OK, all the bearings and adjustments have been checked it is a but scruffy but a nice machine. Most spares still available. One 14" fine tooth Leuco blade included. They are in excess of £3000 new model 749 I think. I have a pallet which I can strap it to if you want to arrange a courier. As always open to offers happy to discuss.
