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.
