Default Lathe

Anyone interested in owning a lathe? Not specifically bike related, but you can make yourself all sorts of cool parts.


I've got one that I regrettably need to sell (single garage and running out of space to store bicycles etc). It a Boxford Industrial 280 metric screwcutting lathe. Loads of extra bits to go with it. No recent pics but here it was loaded up on it's way to me when I bought it:




It has it's original 3ph motor but it's set up with an inverter to run off household single phase (which also gives it infinitely variable speed).


Anyhow I'm looking for 1500 which is I think cheaper than I've seen one sell for. If you're interested, or know anyone who might be, PM and I'll get some pics and details together.

Like you no space. I started to serve my time as a tool maker so spent plenty of time driving lathes, milling machines, shapers, grinders etc, Thought I had seen some big stuff, until I started working a GEC Turbines in trafford park, Then I did see big stuff!

Is that a Dickson Tool Post I see there? If so would you be selling the holders separately?

"Rapid Original" - http://www.gfbgroup.it/rapid-original-eng


I think this particular model was made for Boxford as last I checked they didn't list it in their catalog.

The holders look similar, and I think they might fit but can't be sure. As you only have the 3 they probably would be better staying with the lathe. It's a fine machine at a good price you have there, good luck with the sale.
