Reluctant sale, lack of time and space means I need to sell  one of my lathes.

Very good condition. Well looked after. Hobby use only.

Comes with 2 your jaw chucks, several rests and tools (maybe more to the right person.

Lathe is currently in storage in Monmouth (I'm now based in Caerleon).

Collection only, I do not have a vehicle suitable to transport it.
Cash on collection please

Photographs were taken a little while ago when it was in use...more photos can be taken if needed.

have a look at The Tool post they are the uk dealers and will I suspect have all the details you need. I have had mine for several years, please bear in mind it is a non standard spindle with a bayonet fitting, and if you are later looking at things like sphere jigs or bowl savers the non standard desigh of the spindle, bedbars and the 40mm tool post can cause some engineering difficulties for off the shelf products. That said it is a hell of a machine and I wouldnt change anything. From pens to 5` 9" bowls are all possible.

36" swing over the bed is handy to.
