Excel BL1220 gear head screw cutting lathe

Sorry, now sold

This is a BL-1220 gear head, screw cutting lathe serial number 2020 by Excel Machine Tools. There is a screw cutting indicator mounted on the carriage plus an adjustable stop that can be mounted onto the bed of the lathe.

Distance between centre is approx 600mm, maximum swing is approx 300mm. Spindle has D1-5 camlock mounting for chucks or faceplates, and it accepts MT5 tooling directly in the spindle. The tailstock accepts MT3 tooling.

It is powered by a 1.1kw single phase 240V motor. There is a safety interlock switch to the chuck guard and belt/gear guard – the machine will not run if these are not closed. Judging by the way the spindle stops when the chuck safety guard is lifted, there is an electronic braking system to the spindle, please watch the video to see this. Note that the ‘lamp’ switch and indicator above the headstock are no longer active.

Also included are the following items ….

  • 3 jaw self centering 160mm chuck
  • 4 jaw independent 160mm chuck
  • 280mm faceplate
  • 200mm catch plate
  • fixed steady

  • MT5 to MT3 sleeve
  • MT3 live centre + dead centre
  • change gears
  • stand

*Collection in person of this lathe is available, assistance with loading it using a lifting crane into your van or similar vehicle can be provided as it is a heavy item. The item is too large to fit on a standard pallet, but if you are within approx 4 1/2 hours drive time from me, I can deliver it for the cost shown in the listing. Please check with me before purchasing to confirm that delivery is possible.
