Kerry AG lathe in good working condition. All-geared headstock with spindle clutch and a full screwcutting gearbox with power sliding and surfacing feeds. 240v single-phase electrics. Comes with a very good, nearly new 3-jaw chuck, keyless tailstock chuck, tailstock revolving center, built-in thread-dial indicator, a 4-way toolpost and a number of cutting tools. The lathe is mounted on a stand that I made from 2" box section steel with a built-in coolant tray. However, the lathe can be bench mounted if needed.
Seneca Fall “Star” lathe 6-inch centre height by 26 inches between centres, backgeared and screwcutting. This lathe has been in the family for many years (more than I have!). It belonged to my late uncle and I spent many hours working on it when I was a schoolboy, mainly making parts for speedway bikes. I bought it from my uncle's family when he died and installed it in my garden shed. It was in use until a couple of years ago but since then I have built a much larger workshop and have other lathes - so I really don't use the "Star" any longer.
Plastic Injection Moulding Machine - bench mounting. Hydraulically operated from a commercial single-phase, 240 volt (Savery Ltd) power-pack, 3/4 h.p. 55 bar working pressure. The 600-Watt heaters are regulated by an adjustable temperature controller and monitored by a built-in barrel thermocouple. The pellets can be fed from a simple automatic hopper feed for shot weights up to 10 gm or manually via a feed tube for heavier mouldings when the front tie rods are used to support the additional ram forces.
Dore Westbury Vertical Milling Machine. This fine example was made some years ago by a gold-medal winning model engineer – and then used, very carefully, in the building of his models. The miller really is superbly made and finished with no play and only a small amount of backlash in the table feedscrews. I have recently cleaned, inspected and tested the machine and it performs perfectly – I was unable to find any faults. The table and machine vice are unmarked, as are the handles and dials.
