  • Lathe id?

    Can anyone id this lathe? Popped up on the local marketplace but no info on it. CC distance looks a little short. I’m guessing 12” swing.

    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 1 photos.

    Very well built machine.

      I believe that's a Colchester variant. As above, a well-built, quality machine. (And as always, doesn't mean that particular machine is in great shape, just that it was a good brand when built.)

        I’d like to say round head Colchester, very tentatively.

        There is lettering under apron and chip pan, but I can’t quite read it. Chipmaster was a Colchester model but I can’t fit that onto the lettering.

          Looks like it says Colchester on the plate on the base.

            Thanks for the replies. It does appear to be a mk1 Colechester student.

                  Colchester, used them when i was at college - there are still some parts available from the makers, but sit down before you ask the price...
