For Sale: a late-model Granville Star lathe 4" x 24" gap-bed, backgeared, screwcutting and mounted on a strong stand. This well-built lathe is neatly arranged with a built-on, all-V-belt-drive countershaft unit driven by a single-phase motor that gives twelve spindle speeds of 40, 70, 100, 120, 190, 240, 320, 460, 660, 900, 1300 and 2000 rpm. The 13/16” bore, No.3 Morse taper headstock spindle runs in taper-roller bearings while the slow-speed backgear is of the quick-to-operate, single-lever type. Screwcutting is by changewheels - of which a complete set is present - the drive passing through a tumble-reverse mechanism to a 3/4” diameter leadscrew. A dial-thread indicator is fitted, as is a graduated handle on the leadscrew end. Well equipped, accessories include a Myford swivelling milling slide, T-slotted cross slide, 3-jaw chuck, the correct half-depth body 6-inch 4-jaw chuck, fixed steady, travelling steady, 4-way toolpost, tailstock chuck, tailstock flat and V-drill pads, a large faceplate, V-blocks, three micrometers, an excellent range of turning and boring tools, reamers and other small parts. One owner from new and in excellent working condition. £850 Pictures of the Granville Star lathe for sale here and details of Granville Star lathes here
