8mm watchmaker's lathe for sale. German, circa early 20th century.

A great little lathe for backup or beginners.

Stock No:   14225

A small and simple to use lathe that takes 8mm collets. It has a headstock with pulley and indexing lever, tool rest, stand, tailstock with centre and pivot polishing holder, various other collets including two step chucks etc. It is contained in its original wooden box.

Cosmetically it looks tired and needs a clean and lubrication however, the lack of wear suggests little usage and the tool rest is not damaged. It is fully adjustable and everything is perfectly snug which would allow ultra-accuracy when being used. The box needs joints glued but is fine. The castings are painted silver and the bed, bearings and running parts etc. are high quality steel therefore it could be restored to its former glory with a little care and patience.

The bed length is 10" and the centre height is 1 1/2".

* As mentioned, this would suffice as a stand alone lathe that could be added to, a secondary lathe for pivot
  work etc. or a beginner's lathe. I was surprised to see that it was not worn.

Price:          £500.00.
