Sorry, now sold
This is a Myford ML10 lathe with serial number V152262 which dates it to the later half of the date range 1975 to 1985. The headstock has roller bearings as were fitted to later models of the ML10 lathe.
The condition of this machine is very good, almost to the point of looking like it has never been used for metal turning. When I inspected the machine I couldn’t spot any swarf accumulated in the normal nooks and cranies where it gets lodged, the drive belt pulley wheels have very little marking to them and the surface of the top slide still has markings associated with the protective paper that would have been placed on it. I have mounted the lathe body and the motorising assembly on the plywood board as shown in the photos – possibly the first time they have been united as when I collected this machine, the motorising assembly and lathe body were un-mounted.
It is fitted with a single phase 240V, 250W 1425 RPM motor by Brook Crompton Parkinson Motors and is operated using a Dewhurst short arm switch that allows forward and reverse operation of the spindle.
The micrometer dials on the cross slide and top slide go from 0 – 90, indicating it is an imperial lathe.
Also included are the following items …
- Pratt Burnerd 1588-10000 narrow body 100mm 3 jaw self centering chuck with matched inside and outside jaws, plus chuck key. Conditional appears un-used.
- 2MT Jacobs chuck plus key for use in the tailstock
- Faceplate / catch plate
- Good selection of change gears – still tied together using the twine that Myford used to keep sets of gears together!
- 2MT hard and soft centres
- Installation, operation + maintenance manual
