LATHES:
#3154 Marshall Lathe: Takes standard 8mm collets, indexing headstock, tip over toolrest and tailstock with lock for dead center...looks worse than it is. Dirty and considerable loss of finish, but mechanically has decades of life left. Buyer is encouraged to tear down, clean and oil headstock before using; $179. More pictures here, here, here, here and here.
#3927 Levin 8mm Lathe Package: The best things in life are not free! Near mint 8mm Levin lathe, hard bearings, indexing headstock, tip over rool rest, collet holding tailstock, tip over tool rest and signed Levin cross slide. Plus a Levin 38 piece collet set. This set up has been extremely well cared for, and will serve you well for decades to come. Note the bed is unsigned, I cannot say for sure it is Levin, but it defintely works perfectly. Dead center and wheel chuck are not included, they are there to prevent drawbars from slipping out. Also, the wooden block for the collets is not included. Yours for $1499, also available without slide (deduct $500) and/or collet set (deduct $350). More pictures here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3926 Peerless 8mm Lathe: Privately branded Newall, but this is definitely a Peerless. Overall nice condition, indexing headstock (no pin), tip over toolrest and standard tailstock. Note the bakelite knob on headstock is broken, (someone dropped the drawbar, that would be me!) and while it can be used as is we have the two missing pieces and they are included.....priced at $229 and buyer may order any quantity of collets at a 50% discount. More pictures here, here, here and here.
#3925 Early Levin 8mm Lathe: You will notice that this lathe is finished in grey, rather than nickel or chrome finish. Headstock marked "H" for hard bearings, and bed is (factory I think) drilled for indexing attachment. There is no post. Also, while the tool rest is not original, the mounting is. Tailstock is not orginal either. Note that both headstock and tailstock, as shown in last four pictures, have chips/damage. This does not appear to interfere with mounting, locking down, or running true. Otherwise, this lathe is sold as is; $99. More pictures here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3924 Gear Cutter: As shown this tool has a saw blade attached rather than a gear cutter, and obviously could be used for either application. Final picture shows a very similar early cutter from Perkin's Watchmaker Lathe...., as shows how it is mounted. Marked made in Germany, and I suspect it is from Wolf Jahn; $299. More pictures here, here, here and here.
#3923 Sensitive Drill Press: Maker unknown, but boy is this cool! Cast body, pulley from your lathe motor turns tiny jacob's chuck via a worm gear setup, lever has counterweight. About 10" high. Extremely well build, zero play or damage, add to your collection or use it; $249. More pictures here, here and here.
#3922 Bergeon Lathe: No it isn't, but it sure looks like it. This is the Sincere (from China) repo of Bergeon's lathe, and quite frankly it is amazingly adept both in quality and function. Complete with cross slide and lever feed collet holding tailstock. Takes standard 8mm collets. Base is removable from headstock end permitting vise mounting of lathe. Although being sold as is, the only downsides are that there is a lot of paint loss, it is missing the two oil cups on top of headstock, and also missing the pin from the lever to lock indexing headstock. Appears undamaged and to run true. A helluvah bargain at $499. More pictures here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
#3921 Early Boley 8mm Lathe: And, in the beginning, most lathe manufacturers (but especially Boley) offered their lathes painted...and for Boley a green crinkle finish it was. The theory was, I think, that the light would not reflect like it did on the polished nickel finish...regardless here we have an early Boley complete with lever feed collet holding tailstock. Add a motor and go to work for $599. (Note: some place along the line the original headstock went astray and was replaced with a standard nickle finish version...fits up, and lines up perfectly). More pictures here, here, here, here, here and here.
#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.
#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.
