Wanted: Myford Vertical Sllde

Sun 18th Jan '15

Advert ID: 21856

Tools
Details:
Hi Everyone,
This is a plea so that I can continue to help a very keen 14 year old lad who's very enthusiastic about model engineering.
I've 'adopted' him into my afternoon apprentice scheme, helping him build a 'Juliet No.1' now at rolling chassis stage.
Through another family friend he's got hold of a Tyzack 'Zyto' lathe and a few bench tools.
I'm looking for a Myford vertical slide for him so that he can mill on the lathe....the cylinders loom before him.
Has anyone got a vertical slide that isn't used anymore hidden away in its' box.
He can't afford a new one, even modern pocket money does go that far, but a sensible payment is possible.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to the team behind this wonderful resource site.
Happy New Year; may your swarf piles grow even taller.
Thanks again,
Stuart

General
Details:
I've just come across probably the most ingenious (and plausible) scam yet...
An advert on 'fridayad' for a myford lathe (from the photo, probably an ML4) for £190. Contacting the 'seller', she (the name given is 'Helen Miller') has a mobile phone - but poor signal are, so only responds to email (gmail address). Offers to ship the lathe 'cash on delivery' (at her employer's expense) - you get to examine the lathe when it arrives and only when satisfied, do you pay.
At first glance this must be genuine (you only pay when you've got the goods) - but, just before delivery, another email arrives (from the courier - apparently Parcelforce) asking for a 'Paykash' voucher before delivery.
This is a scam - Parcelforce don't do a 'cash on delivery' service, neither will they deliver anything as large as a lathe (30 kg limit).
This is a sophisticated scam, that's obviously worked in the past, so be warned!

I'm after anything for a Maximat Standard lathe, my latest project.
Parts, literature, even whole lathe (working or not).
They were built by Emco in the 60's.
It was more of a tooling station, the headstock could be removed for milling.

Thanks, I know they are unusual, but somebody must have one!!

Information: Lapping and Honing machines

Mon 12th Jan '15

Advert ID: 21803

Details:
Hi

I have some small (around 3 - 6mm) bores that need the plungers lapped to them.

I have seen the usual Delapena, etc horizontal bench hones.

Ideally the holes will be in metal blocks, and having to hold them on a horizontal hone will not be much fun!!

I have seen the Delapena autostroker or beamstroker used for honing engine cylinders.

I do not want to use the lathe or mill, and I have read that for a perfect lapped hole the part does want to be clamped, such as in a chuck.

Can either of these machines be used for lapping, or is a lapping and a honing machine a different beast? Were there ever any small bench vertical honing machines made, that could be used for lapping?
So
Could I build myself a small benchtop honing machine based on a beamstroker, or do I need a more linear action to the lap?
Alternatively would I be better buying a bench hone and making separate liner which I could hone to size, fit into the larger piece and then lap the plunger into the bore as a final operation?

Any advice appreciated!!!!

I am in the process if building a new smaller bench so my old one is for sale. I need the space, looking for a tool and cutter grinder so need somewhere to put it. It's a rather large woodworking bench it is 2400 mm long 700 mm wide designed to be stood against a wall. It was professionally made all wood mortice and tenon construction it will not bend or break it is very solid. It has 6 legs one each corner another two in the middle plus storage space under it with a shelf. It was mounted with two wood working vices which I intend to keep however I may acquire another so if I do one vice will be included. The top could do with renewing but is useable. It is a cheap way of getting a solid new bench with a bit of work, put kitchen worktop or similar on it you would have a great work surface. I have spend lots if time and money on a new bench so I know how good a start this one would be. Problem is transporting it, if you are local I reckon we could do it but I am not willing to trailer
it very far it is heavy.
Open to offers it is a real shame to chop it up for firewood I have put £50 but that is negotiable.

Want to help us fund the site and time spent by the people behind it then use the button below.

We are not a registered charity so you can't claim it back but it helps pay for the costs of improving the features.

You can also help by looking at the advert on the side menus as we get paid for these BUT please only look at adverts you are interested in, you never know you might find something you never knew existed.
