For Sale: Lodge & Shipley Vintage Lathe circa 1905

Lodge & Shipley Lathe circa 1905. Fitted with a full screwcutting and feeds gearbox of the Norton "Quick-change" type, long-T-slotted saddle wings to act as a boring table. For its age this is an exceptionally heavily-built lathe with a deep bed casting, a 8-inch centre height and in fair condition. Has a 3-jaw chuck, 4-way toolpost, a micrometer-adjustable carriage stop and very strong tailstock. Power drive to the carriage - however I do not know if this works. Fitted with a 230-volt, single-phase 1 .hp. motor; it does run however the motor is reluctant to spin up without help and may be missing the centrifugal switch for the start winding. Has been in the family for around 50 years and I believe it came from one of the railway workshops in Brighton. £375 or offers. Hopefully someone can give it a new home. Collection from Ferring, Worthing, West Sussex.
