Myford Super 7 lathe SK51001

Sorry, now sold

This is a Myford Super 7 lathe fitted with a quick change gearbox serial number QC65646, plus it also has a screw cutting dial indicator fitted. The area of the bed where the serial number is stamped looks like it may have be ground at some point in time, so the serial number is hard to read but is probably SK51005 which dates the year of manufacture to between 1960 and 1961.

It is fitted with a 240V single phase Brook Crompton Parkinson Motor.

It has new vee belts on the primary drive motor to countershaft and secondary drive countershaft to headstock, plus a new spindle lubrication wick and wiper felt has been fitted. The half nuts are in good condition, see the final photo.

The micrometer dials to the cross slide and top slide are numbered 0 to 90, indicating that they provide imperial measurements.

Also included are the following items…

  • 4″ self centering 3 jaw chuck plus chuck key
  • Faceplate
  • 2MT Jacobs drill chuck for use in the tailstock
  • 2MT dead centres

Note that the quick change gearbox has been drained of oil so that it can be shipped, so it will need to be refilled with K68 oil as part of commissioning this lathe in your workshop.

Like similar Myford lathes of this vintage, the original enamel paint has dried out and become very brittle, resulting in areas of the paintwork having cracked or flaked off. Please review the photos to check the condition of the paint. Presuming you are planning to use your lathe for its intended purpose rather than just look at it so the cosmetic appearance shouldn’t be an issue!
