Meyer Burger UW1 (Astoba) Universal Machine Tool. This superb, Swiss-built Machine combines many machines into one and so is ideal for a smaller workshop.(Further details information can be found here: www.uw1.ch or http://www.lathes.co.uk/meyerburger/index.html )
The lathe comes complete with the standard topslide; a tailstock is based on a Myford Super 7 that takes Morse Taper 2 accessories and an original UW1 taistock. The machine is complete on the maker's cabinet stand with storage shelves for accessories.
The original motor has been replaced with a Variable-speed Newton Tesla CL750 package that works very well - the necessity of moving the belt from pulley to pulley (one has a couple of chips) is eliminated. The machine has been in recent use and works perfectly with no issues.
The only reason for selling is that I have managed to acquire a Hardinge HLV-H and I need the space.
