Myford Super 7 Lathe SK6599

Sorry, now sold

This is a Myford Super 7 lathe serial number SK6599 which dates it to somewhere between 1955 and 1958. It is a ‘MK1’ model and therefore features an integral headstock drip-feed oiler, a clutch within the countershaft 4-step pulley and the operating levers for the tumble reverse and backgear are screw operated making them less vulnerable to being selected by mistake. There is a thread dial indicator fitted to the carriage, plus a Myford 4 way tool holder that has been enlarged to accept larger tools.

It has a recent single phase BFM 240V, 3/4HP, 1425RPM motor fitted.

It has brand new vee belts on the primary drive motor to countershaft and secondary drive countershaft to headstock, plus a new wiper felt.

  • 4″ 3 jaw self centering chuck and key
