#3920 Boley 8mm Lathe Setup: Good old reliable Boley, indexing headstock, tip over toolrest and standard tailstock, this lot also includes 28 collets (not all are Boley), a signed Boley storage box, a set of jeweling chucks, a graver sharpener, set of crown chucks and some gravers. All yours for $429. More pictures here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3919 Peerless 8mm Lathe Setup: Ready to go to work...8mm Peerless, needs a bit of cleaning up, missing tailstock locking pin (hopefully I'll find one before someone buy this!), otherwise tight and true and eager to turn something for you. Includes 57 collets (board not included), mostly Rivett. A bit of history...Mr Rivett, in his aging wisdom, decided to make his collets proprietary, which in effect made his high quality lathes less acceptable to the average jeweller/watchmaker. In an effort to recover from his flight into stupidity he then made his collets in US wire sizes, and while there is some logic here, for the most part it did not engage the public. While not all of these collets are Rivett wire sizes, most are. And we are including a Starrett wire gauge to help you figure it out, and once you've done it you'll find it actually makes some sense. Anyhow, in the 8mm world we are used to a #3 collet which would have an opening of 3/100th of a millimeter. Wire gauge #3 collet (as you can see from the chart) would be 5.31mm or .209". All collets fit up to the Peerless lathe perfectly, and trust me, you will get over the confusion. And you'll save some money, this is priced a lot lower than a Peerless lathe and 57 Peerless colletts. Yours for $599! More pictures here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3918 Derbyshire 8mm Lathe Package!: What a beauty! Near mint 8mm Derbyshire lathe, hard bearings, indexing headstock, tip over rool rest, collet holding tailstock with lever feed. Included accessories are a collet set (not all Derbyshire) of #2 through #50, dead center (board not included), 1/4" jacobs chuck and three way (that's three way, not two way) HR cross slide. This set up has been extremely well cared for, and will serve you well for decades to come. Note this is a standard Derbyshire, does not use 'fat' or 'long' collets; it takes standard 8mm collets. Yours for $1599, and if that's too high we will consider removing cross slide and/or collets. More pictures here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3917 Boley F1: Old world quality, and probably one of the finest small lathes made. This Boley model is seldom seen, it is all self contained with its own motor which is self tensioning, indexing headstock, tip over tool rest and standard tailstock. These are a joy to work with, very heavy and won't move on the bench, but can easily be moved out of the way when not in use. Although there is some paint loss, this lathe is in perfect working order. Welcome to the big leagues at $1199. More pictures here, here, here, here, here and here.
