For Sale: Lorch LLK High-precision Plain-turning Lathe

Lorch LLK High-precision Plain-turning Lathe. 65 mm centre height by 275 mm between centres. This is the most up-to-date version of the 1960s Lorch lathes for fine optical and instrument work and in good working order. Lever-action tailstock, three-jaw self-centring chuck and backplate, collet drawbar and a new 1/4 h.p. single-phase motor and switchgear are included. The LLK has its motor mounted to the left of and slightly behind the headstock so that its V-pulley lines up with the neat countershaft held inside the lower part of the headstock casting. Final drive is by a flat belt running over 3-step pulleys, the countershaft assembly running in bearings held on a circular, eccentric plate that allowed the belt tension to be slackened for changes of speed. This example is one from a precision machine shop where the currently-fitted compound slide rest assembly was made - signed "J D Williams". £850 Details of Lorch LLK lathes here
