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.

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.

Fitted with an R8 taper spindle (and so access to high-quality but inexpensive and plentiful Bridgeport-type tooling), the head has the option of both a quick, lever-action down feed for drilling or a wheel-operated slow feed with more control for milling. A gear box enables 6 speeds to be selected from 80-1650 r.p.m.

It runs well in all gears and all speeds.

SIXIS S101 High-precision Universal Milling Machine. Since we moved house, I now find I have little space for all of my toys and so I am gradually arranging to sell some of them off. The S101 is a high-quality, Swiss-made machine and comes with many accessories as shown in the photographs. It is powered via a 3-phase inverter which in turn plugs into a UK standard mains socket (230v). It has hardly been used during the last few years and, as such, is in good condition.

Bergeon Model 50 Watchmaker's 8mm Lathe
SOUTH BEND "Heavy Ten" Toolroom lathe.
4.5-inch centre height. This is the heavily-built big brother of the South Bend 9-inch (that Boxford copied and never equaled). It is the desirable model with under-slung motor and two speed countershaft housed in the stand and the 1” collet capacity mandrel which will allow for 1 3/8” material to pass through. This machine dates from WW2. I have owned and regularly used this machine for over 40 years and am very attached to it but was seduced by a gorgeous Colchester Student . . . lathe . . .
Vintage Selig.Sonnenthal back geared screw cutting lathe dating from 1880-1910. Around 4" x 30" with a large-capacity gap bed the lathe is on its original stand with flywheel drive -though a neat conversion having been made to electric drive. A magnificent and much-loved machine coveted by two generations of my family. Excellent condition with numerous additional changewhels and cutting tools. More information or photos on request.
Myford Super 7BPXF 3.5" x 19" backgeared with screwcutting gearbox and power cross feed. Mounted on a cabinet stand with large chip tray and the maker's levelling blocks. This lathe was owned from new by my uncle (the second of two he had). I bought it from his family after his death some years ago but since I have other lathes to play with the Myford gets very little use nowadays. I have therefore decided to pass it on to someone who will get more pleasure from it. It was my uncle's pride and joy and, as such, it has always been very well maintained and remains in excellent condition.
