Thread: ID this Lathe please

    Default ID this Lathe please

    Hello all. One of those deals a person cant pass up has come my way. Widow has a garage full of equipment she would like to get rid of.

    Can anyone ID it? worth the effort to move and rig up a 3ph power supply?
    It would be going into my 2car shop (no cars allowed). It just seems big for my needs. (have not seen it in person going to see it Friday)

    You can always do small work on a big lathe but you can't do big work on a small lathe. If the price is right grab it. If you're smart and have the coin I'd also suggest trying to work a package deal for both the lathe and the mill.

    You might regret buying it for turning, facing and threading ladies wrist watch parts.

    Its 25 years or more since I used one, but I reckon that is an Okuma lathe, excellent machines.

    Stuart,

    The Okuma I used to use had a tailstock as per Tony's website, i.e. rapid lever, angled handwheel etc. a mechanical masterpiece actually (except for the lift-rollers which seemed like a good idea, but coolant used to seize them up.....)

    I see the lathe which zerodegreesc has posted has a more simple tailstock, so perhaps this is a copy (Tony mentions 'Dong Yang').

    So I will revise my opinion - it looks like an Okuma. The mill (e.g. the 'Y' powerfeed) looks like a clone, so perhaps the lathe is too?

    I'd be all over that mill! Where are you located? I'll help you haul the lathe if I can get the mill!
