  • Myford Super 7 MSRP

    I notice on Myford's website that the MSRP for a new Super 7 Plus with the
    30-3/4" long bed and quick change gear box (p/n 10/041) is £ 7,380 ex VAT.
    (At current exchange rates, this is $US 12,040 FOB the Myford factory.)

    Is the statement "dealers may sell for less" implicit here, or is this the price
    that new Super 7's actually trade hands for in the UK?

    They sell for twice that amount if you can get it.

    Don't forget, it's a MYFORD

      When I was apprentice Instrument mechanic at CibaGeigys in the 80s we had a main workshop with a fairly newish condition colchester and a brand new condition 1609 DSG...
      The instrument repair block had a myford super 7..which was as new.

      I was rarely allowed to use the DSG..could use the Colchester when ever I wanted so long as it was free.. and the myford was for our use only.
      I hated the super 7..after using the other two...

      If someone stole my Emco maximat v13 and left me a brand new super7..I would hunt them down..mercilessly...

              The DSG and Colchester were both 10 x 31" machines like the Myford ?
              Or were you making an apples-to-persimmons comparison ?

              Here's why I am interested in valuations.

                Well, that may be what the aficionada claim, but the factory pens their logo
                in Upper/lower case.

                Like so

                  Answer to original question is, "Yes"; although, there are some promotions. There is one they currently offer where they take 1,000 pounds off the price if you visit them at a trade show. I recently asked about a new Myford on another list. A British member responded,

                  "Note that if you get a new Myford, they will often 'cut a deal' with discount, which varies between say 7% , or say £800 discount/accessories, etc etc... it varies.
                  The deal now shown on their home page is £1000 off if you attend the show... though you can get a discount without attending.
                  They also have discounts around the beginning of the year, and also maybe near the 'Harrogate Show'
                  They often have 'we pay the VAT' or around a 15% of accessories for items ordered at the show."

                    Thank you for the thorough and helpful answer.

                    The machine pictured above appears to be available for the equivalent of
                    £ 1,275, all in.

                    Even ignoring the pricy optional items like the milling attachment & ect, this
                    seems like a good value for what looks like a very tidy machine.

                      That's about the correct price, I was going to post and say £1200 but you beat me to it.

                      If Myfords had that same lathe in their showroom they would want £3,000 for it and get it.
                      The name is powerful enough for some punters to ignore bargains elsewhere.

                      Two for sale here.

                        Thank you, Mr Stevenson.

                        Is there a taper attachment between the motor and the crossslide in
                        the picture above ?

                          Yes I just spotted that, be interesting to see what's in the boxes underneath as part of the TT attachment is missing, the link but even so it's an easy part to make.

                          So long bed, TT, vertical slide, the tilting one to boot, plus gearbox makes this a god deal at the advertised price.

                          Also forgot the power cross feed and the QCTP.

                            I expect that it is just tucked out of the way while not in use.

                            What is your opinion about the dull appearance of the ways ?

                              I inherited a paint can full of rusty Whitford nuts and bolts. Can I offer them on-line as Myford spares?
