Dore Westbury MK2 vertical miller

Sorry, now sold

This is a Dore Westbury Mk2 vertical milling machine, fitted with power feed to the X axis of the table.

The mill is powered by a 240V single phase 370W 1420 RPM motor by Brook Crompton Parkinson Motors. The power feed unit is powered by a 240V Paravlux motor.

Also included are the following items

  • 2MT Osborn collect chuck + spanner
  • 2MT boring head
  • 2MT Clarkson Type A (??) collet chuck
  • Drawbar
  • Selection of spanners for holding spindle & adjusting head position
  • Small milling vice + clamps

When commissioning this item in your workshop, you will need to create a suitably sized circular hole in the bench it is mounted on to allow the column height to be raised or lowered. Also, the oil in the gearbox of the power cross feed has been drained for shipping, so it will need to be refilled.

The belt guard has been cut in two by a former owner, the front half is mounted to the body to provide protection around the spindle cone. Note that the guard needs to be removed when the back gear is engaged in order to accommodate how the locking pins need to be fitted, also the guard needs to be removed when the belt drive is on the largest front cone pulley otherwise it rubs on the guard. The rear part of the guard is present, and with some suitable fettleing it could be fitted if required.

Collection in person of this item is available. Alternatively shipping to GB non-remote postcodes with Monday to Friday economy anytime delivery is available for the price given in the listing. If shipping to Highland/Remote/NI postcodes is required or Saturday or AM / PM delivery, please contact me for the additional cost. The item will be bolted onto a pallet for delivery, and I will also remove the motors from their mounting brackets to avoid undue stresses whilst it is on the move.
