Please see below details of a lathe for sale. These don’t come on the market very often, whilst its currently 3 phase, they can be converted to a single phase motor or run through an inverter. If you are interested please contact Tim directly.”tim cowen” <

Here now are the pics of the machine. As you will see, it’s a 1950’s Dominion of the AL series. The bed is 5′ and max inboard bowl turning diameter, with the detachable section of bed removed, is about 24″. The headstock thread is 1.75″, 6 tpi. The motor is 1hp 3-phase (converter not included), with emergency stop switch, and belt drive with 4 pulleys giving speeds from about 400 – 1750 rpm. There are no.3 Morse tapers on head and tailstock, with a live centre and drill chuck for the tailstock.
There are a range of tool rests for different applications, including a non-standard rest for bowl turning, also faceplate and other bits and pieces.

As you probably know, these machines can be dis-assembled into 3 sections: plinth with motor, bed, and tail stand. All parts, but particularly the plinth, are cast iron and heavy and are bolted together. This makes the machine extremely stable, even with uneven blanks, but means that moving it requires at least 2 strong people, and a robust vehicle. I believe the motor can be removed to make the plinth lighter, but we have not done this.

The price I have been advised is £750. PRICE REDUCTION NOW £650

There is an Axminster 4 jaw chuck that we had made for the lathe which, if you are interested, we would be happy to include in the sale for a further £60. I can send pics if required.

Please let me know as soon as convenient if you are interested, and if you need further information. Mr While is keen to clear the machine from his workshop.

With best regards, Tim
