Watchmaker's Mandrel Lathe for sale. Good quality with no wear.

A very practical machine.

The brass body with fully adjustable attachments is hand powered by turning a crank handle which in turn drives helical gearing - this allows for no shake between them.

This is a type of lathe but instead of a chuck it has a faceplate carrying three adjustable 'dogs' to hold the work which is usually a flat piece rather than round stock. The tool is then moved into the work to cut it. The beauty of these tools is that accurate turning off-centre can be achieved.

Having a solid cast iron base, this mandrel is probably Swiss and though the brass and the steel need cleaning and polishing it is in great condition. It would make a fabulous ornament and have a serious practical use. It is crisp in feel and operation and very heavy. It is very rare to get one in unworn condition.

Dimensions:                  Total width 14 1/4" x total height 8 1/2".

Circa:                             Victorian.

Condition:                      Good but requires careful cleaning and lubrication. Surface rust.

Price:                             £500.00.
