Kärger DP3 Precision Lathe

SOLD: a superb Kärger DP3 Precision Lathe. This very fine example of a classic toolmaker's lathe is mounted on the maker's stand with both a single-phase motor-driven countershaft and complete with its original treadle driven flywheel drive - allowing you to get fit while being productive. Complete with a mass of standard and stepped collets; all the special thread-chasing equipment including fine-pitch threads and bronze star followers; three tailstocks - one with a capstan-handle equipped lever feed, the other with a standard lever feed and the third with screw-feed; a dividing unit with indexing plate; a Boxford milling slide with its T-slotted table on which is mounted a high-speed milling, drilling and grinding spindle; a "Potts" type round milling slide; three 3-jaw chucks (one a precision Cushman and a conical-scroll Taylor); Burnerd self-centring 4-jaw chuck; T-slotted boring table; a "Target" horizontal milling attachment of the type described here; quick-set toolpost; fixed steady;  a large-capacity faceplate-cum-4-jaw chuck; and a large diameter standard faceplate. The previous owner, a clock and watch, repairer, developed his own overhead system to allow for some ornamental turning and this is also included. A heavy lathe, it appears never to have been dismantled and is probably best kept in that state when moved. It's available to view in Cornwall. £950
