Chester Craftsman Lathe

Sorry, now sold

This is a Chester Craftsman lathe, powered by a single phase 240V 1.5HP motor.

The design looks similar to the version of the Craftsman lathe that Chester currently sell, although some aspects of the design have evolved over the years.

This lathe is also pretty much identical to the Warco BH600G lathe, just not painted green – I have one of these in my own workshop which was made in 2003, so that maybe gives a clue as to when this Chester Craftsman lathe was supplied.

Also included with this lathe are the following items

  • Quick change tool post plus 8 tool holders
  • 6″ 3 jaw self centreing chuck with inside + outside jaws
  • 8″ 4 jaw independent chuck
  • another 3 jaw chuck
  • fixed steady
  • travelling steady
  • faceplate
  • live centres
  • dead centres
  • drill chuck for use in tailstock
  • various selves and adaptors

There is a stand with lockable doors, tray and rear splash guard.

This is a heavy item weighing close to 400kg, so you will need lifting equipment / multiple strong people to install it into your workshop. Collection is available, and I can help to load it into your van using my hoist. If delivery is required, please message me and I can see what options are available.
