I had enquiries from around the country and France, Portugal and Spain - sold for the asking price. Thank you for running the advertisement for my Meyer and Burger UW1; I had an excellent response and the machine sold very quickly.Many thanks for the work preparing the ad for my father's lathe - you are worth every penny charged, and you can't often say that these days: Three inquiries in a very short time and sold to a lovely Irish gentleman, Mike. I want to thank you for all the help - I could not have sold my machine without your excellent advice, Terence: Thanks, Tony; inundated with enquiries; this has to be the best way to sell equipment; I'll be recommending your site to others. After many enquiries including the USA and Canada I sold the Myford for the asking price: Thanks for your help - I will certainly use your site in the future. Alan:  I purchased a 6" lathe in the USA from your sales and wanted pages; thanks for the site, I could not find anything in the US or anywhere else as good. Thanks for identifying all the mysterious parts and listing them - a wonderful service. I must thank you for the advice in to describing the lathe and the price to ask. The manner of the advertisement's presentation certainly attracted the right sort of serious buyer--I'm so pleased I chose to sell it this way.  Now sold - thanks to your great site (again!). My lathe sold this morning for the full asking price, thanks to you. A terrific value-for-money service.
Buyers and sellers - please be fair to each other. Organising  visits and transport can be time consuming and expen

For Sale: Colchester Chipmaster Lathe. A very low-hours 5.5" x 23" lathe with speeds from 35 to 3000 r.p.m. In perfect working order having had only light use in a research and development department. I bought the lathe in 2017 - but it's been unused since 2019 due to back trouble. It comes with a complete set of Burnerd Multi-size collets in their original box, fixed steady, travelling steady, the original Burnerd 3-jaw chuck and correct half-depth body 8-inch independent 4-jaw chuck, recently-new 3 and 4-jaw chucks, a Dickson quick-set toolpost with parting and boring tool and 2 standard holders., fixed steady, travelling steady, coolant, multi-position carriage stop, faceplate, two tailstock chucks, tailstock rotating centre and standard centres. I've made a 60 and 16-hole dividing ring on the spindle end - an accessory that has been invaluable in making parts for my models - and a quick-action, lever-operated carriage lock. The lathe is driven from an expensive, high-quality 1-phase to 3-phase converter so all the electrics work as standard. £3450 Phone: 02392-82331 (Southsea) or email: sylong1946@gmail.com  Pictures of the Chipmaster lathe for sale here and details of Colchester Chipmaster lathes here

For Sale: Fobco Star "Universal" drilling machine. A splendid example of a very late model Fobco 'Universal' with one violin-maker owner from new.
It has a No.2 Morse taper spindle, a standard "Myford" thread that allows the fitting of 2 Morse taper collets. It's fitted with a precision, keyless drill chuck. This is a very late machine, bought by me new in 1990 when I started out as a violin- and cello-maker.  I have a second Fobco, which I use daily, but this example has always been kept 'for best' and so has had very little use and remains in A1 condition.  1-phase Brook-Crompton motor and fitted with a no-volt release push-button starter.  The table is completely unmarked.  It comes with the original guard. It is very unusual to find a Fobco "Universal", still less one in pristine condition - and it is capable of light milling. £650 Phone 07833-602908

A restoration of the lathe has been undertaken and it's now in full working order. As an example of the work undertaken, one arm of the casting supporting the back gear shaft was damaged; a new arm was grafted on (aircraft standard) then line bored and new bearings installed. New headstock bearings, oil pots, drive belts, 1.1Kw electric motor and starter switch. With the lathe is a set of screwcutting changewheels, the original 3-inch 3-jaw chuck. a new 4-inch 3-jaw chuck with both inner/outer jaws, a backplate, tailstock chuck (0-13mm), 4.5-inch faceplate, 2.25" backplate, a tailstock centre, the makers brass screw cutting data plate and a new tap and die to suit headstock spindle thread. £375 To arrange a viewing or for further information please telephone Godfrey Moore 01772- 719487 (Preston) evenings or email: humbermoo55@gmail.com

For Sale: MYFORD SUPER 7B LATHE 3.5" x 19" (serial No. SK160527M) with a screwcutting gearbox, power cross feed and a spindle clutch.
Mounted on the maker's cabinet stand with levelling blocks and a deep chip tray. Purchased by me direct from Myford, Nottingham in 1983 or 4. It was once stored unused for ten years between house moves and has been used only for light work on model engineering. I believe this was one of the last Super 7Bs to be sold by Myford and was built entirely 'in-house', i.e. with no dumbing down with imported castings. Accessories include a 4-way toolpost, rear toolpost, catch plate and two face-plates, 3-jaw chuck, 4-jaw chuck, half-inch keyless drill chuck, and a thread-dial indicator. Single-phase motor with factory wiring and a Dewhurst reversing switch. The photographs show the very fine condition although there are a couple of small 'dings' from dropped chuck keys, etc. Other than that, a fair description would be "excellent". Unfortunately, the colour rendition on screen is not perfect, the lathe colour is original and 'as-new'. Buyer collects from Worthing, West Sussex. The lathe and cabinet can be readily dismantled into six or seven more manageable assemblies. All questions will be answered promptly, and any inspection and testing are welcome by appointment. £2750 Pictures of the Myford Super 7B for sale here and details of Super 7 lathes here.

. Complete with drilling quill, horological 8mm spindle and ER collet spindle, machine vice and all the necessary tee bolts, allen keys, chuck key, spare drive belt, adjustable 24volt power supply and various other parts. There is a movable and flexible light system also included. The machine comes with a 5C collet indexable headstock that can be driven via a rear pulley to enable turning when mounted on the rear table. Standard 5c collets (not included) of up to 1" can be used for turning or gear cutting, etc. This item is not a substitute for a lathe, but is nevertheless a most useful addition. The main table has a single tee slot, measures 9" x 3.5" and has a 4.5inch. In addition to the screwfeed, there is a lever feed that can be disengaged. The leadscrews are 2mm pitch and have anti-backlash nuts. The spindle can be raised to a height of 9.5". Speeds up to 6500 rpm are achieved via pulley changes and a variable speed controller.

This is a very versatile machine and can be set at almost any position or angle. With the use of the knuckle joint, almost any angle is achievable - many are demonstrated in the photographs. The spindles can be used in either horizontal or vertical mode and most of the attachments used in an off-hand manner - an extended 30mm spigot to facilitate this is included. (this spigot can also be used to extend the various attachments). The photographs should give a clear indication of all aspects of the machine but feel free to call me and ask any questions that you may have. Location Uxbridge West London  You are very welcome to view the machine in person. Asking price £3250.

For Sale: Schaublin 102N lathe - a late-model example and mounted on the correct maker's cabinet stand with storage. The bench top measures 150cm x 80cm and the height 85cm.
Overall bed length is one metre. The headstock has built-in indexing with four sets of holes: 12, 48, 60 and 100.  The lathe comes with an extensive set of accessories: a Schaublin high-speed milling and grinding spindle; 38 metric collets ranging from 1 to 20mm; plus 6 hexagonal bar collets; 6 square bar collets; a 2 Morse taper adapter; dead and live centres; Tripan SMD quick change toolpost (with ten-micron repeatability claimed - which is about right in my experience), and a Pratt Burnerd 100mm BP71 chuck with internal and external jaws. The lathe is powered by the original three-phase motor fitted with a Direct Drives one-to-three phase converter, sine filter and a variable speed controller - this integrates into the Schaublin two-speed forward and reverse switch box and gives a very wide range of infinitely-variable spindle speeds.
This is a beautiful lathe to use, the cross-slide is sensitive, taught, and with very little backlash.  One feels perfectly confident working on small jobs close to the collets.  Occasionally, I have even attached stereo microscopes for ultra-precision work. This lathe is in phenomenally fine condition and has been used only for light horological work Viewing is highly recommended. £9000, with sensible offers considered. £9000 of sensible offers.
