think i'm the wrong mark but i,m putting a bid in myself, i'm sure that if i do it will finally stop the iron cravings, [has Stephen King considered writing about it?], my wife will understand.
it all started with a little bit of Myford, then Boxford, then Harrison, then DSG[ as yet unfulfilled i could almost taste the coolant tank, spicy] and Cinncinatti [my fav]and id forgot poor old S&B, thanks for the reminder......
Now where could i hide it, i bought a Mini excavator some time ago, her indoors thinks its to dig a subteranian Iron depositry and id convinced that thats where iron ore comes from.
Once again i must appologise if [i am] not the right mark but hey..

If you want a cheap way to cure the DSG craving, I've got a 17x36 1954 roller bearing model sitting here under a sheet, probably going to the scrap man. All works, but needs the bed grinding or scraping or something - suffers from a combination of wear (though not all that severe) and twist.

Yours for the price of scrap @ 2.5 tons of CI ;)
A bit more if you want the taper turning attachment.

That's a nice lathe 37.000.00 new and a real bargain go for it one sold last year to a member here for about nearly five grand and he was very pleased with it.Alistair

Just checked, my DSG was only 1652/10/0, sale agreed at 1952 price (in 1954), actual delivery June 1955.
Cheap rubbish, obviously ;)

if I dont bid on it myself

If "You" were going to bid on it "Yourself" ..the last thing you would do is draw attention to it ..
Good idea though...why not tell us all, the items, you're going to bid on, so we can all get the chance to look at them and advice you, if you're getting a bargain or not.

just think possible advice from :- 24,819 Members and 1,837 Active Members

how about that Alistair .

please no, can Warrington be in England, if i leave wales they wont let me back in [so the boyz in the pit cabin tell me, and the possibility of going cannibal, but they have been known to lie], i have a severe desire creeping up on me,...help its happening again, i'm going to black out and end up making my shed 2 1/2 tons heavier/ smaller/ more congested / happier, oh the shame of this sickness, at least i could suck mints [hence teeth failure] to give up smoking, what the hell bit of a lathe an i supposed to suck?
If i airbrush skulls and barbed wire all over it do you think i could pass it off as a Harley?

Not bad 460 quid for a genuine tool room lathe, now if it had been a clapped out Colchester it would have made 3 times this..........

Someone got very lucky. I had a battery warning on my laptop and rushed to put in a 500 ceiling on my bid but it dropped the mobile broadband connection and I couldn't get it back before the battery went flat. Got outbid by a tenner with 10 seconds to go - aah well.

To rub salt in the wound I got home to open this reply from the seller to a question I asked:



I have had the lathe for 3 years and hardly ever used it...... It came from
another subcon engineering firm i purchased and the guys that came over say
it was rarely used there aswell

Looks like someone copped a nice deal :)
