Myford Super 7 lathe SK126776

For sale – £4,125 plus £129 delivery

Incredibly, this is a Myford Super 7 lathe with power cross feed that has never previously been used. It bears the serial number SK126776 and was delivered new to its purchaser on 26 July 1976. As was the way with how Myford lathes were sold, the choice of motor was an option, and for this lathe it wasn’t until October 2006 that the purchaser then bought a motor at a Myford ‘open house’ at their factory in Beeston, along with the stand, tray, splash guard and riser blocks.

Since the original purchase, this lathe has been kept under a Myford protective cover in a dry workshop, with the bed and other key surfaces covered with ample quantities of protective oil.

It is powered by a single phase 550W 1425RPM 220-240V motor by Tyco Electronics Crompton Electric motors, and the Myford 60/056 switch unit allows forward and reverse operation.

It is also fitted with imperial dials to the cross slide, top slide and leadscrew hand wheel.

The lathe has been prepared for use by cleaning off the protective oil layers (although there is some residual cosmetic oil staining of some surfaces – please review photos), fitting new vee belts on the primary drive to the countershaft and secondary drive from the countershaft to the spindle, plus a new wiper felt and spindle lubricating wick have have been fitted and all the oil nipples have been replaced, except for part no 65001 which has been inspected to ensure it is free of oil residues.

Also included with this lathe are the following items …

  • 7″ face plate
  • V1106 4 1/2″ catch plate
  • 2 x 2MT dead centres
  • Threaded chuck mounting plate
  • Selection of change gears
  • Myford maintenance tools in canvas bag – spanners, allen keys, oiler
  • Myford stand with tray, riser blocks, rear splash guard, mounting pads
  • Operation, installation and maintenance manual
  • Myford brochures
  • Original shipping note

Although there are no chucks included, if requested by the new purchaser, I will include a used 4 jaw independent and a used 3 jaw self centreing chuck, although given the quality of this lathe I would recommend that you purchase brand new chucks!
