For Sale: Cowells 90 ME

For Sale: Cowells ME 90 miniature precision backgeared and screwcutting lathe. Fully refurbished and in excellent condition with all slideways tight and moving smoothly. This lathe has been part of my display collection and, although I have I never used it, it has been tested for accuracy and regularly oiled to maintain its condition.  
Fitted with the sought-after M14 x 1 spindle thread that allows the use of Unimat 3 lathe chucks and faceplates, etc. 12 spindle speeds, 6 in low range and 6 in high. The cross and top slides have been upgraded with zeroing steel micrometer dials; the cross-feed oilite bush replaced; all electrical switches checked, a new heavy-duty revere switch installed; new drive belts fitted (old belts included) and the lathe runs very quietly.
Accessories include a collet chuck with eleven DA 20 collets (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6.5 and 7mm), , Bison 3-jaw chuck and key in immaculate condition (stored with hydraulic oil to prevent corrosion), tailstock chuck and key, tailstock die holder, HSS cutting tools and the maker's Operation Manual. The fibreglass cover has some damage on the back but I did not bother to fix this as the lathe was displayed in a plexiglass case (included in the sale). £1950 Details of Cowells lathes here
