This watch is no longer for sale (sold on 2010-10-10)
Price : GBP 335.00
...........Long neglected - a useful little lathe, exactly as I found it, in its original fitted wooden box.......
There is some rust to some of the collets, as shown in the pics. However, the overall condition is good. The compound slide is in good condition, and there is also the option of using the extra tailstock, as a set of turns.
310 mm bed length, 40 mm centre height.

..........Alerted by the observant questioner below, I had a closer look, and yes, the lathe seems to be arranged to work left handed, or the slide can be operated from the back........
The foot is an addition, and although the lug under the headstock fits into it, the lever that tightens the headstock on to the bar fouls against the foot. A problem that would have to be overcome........
