Thanks! I've just stripped a similar Myford ML10 so that I could carry it from my cold workshop into a warmer house.

Interesting?

Regards

Thanks for posting. Now that all my projects are smaller, Some of my machines are a little too big. Your shop and machines are just right for my work, now. Keep your place clean and well maintained, and keep posting!

Very impressive and very clean too. I'm not familiar with the brand. Do you know the age of this lathe?

In the second picture there looks like a milling attachment in the same colour of green. Did it come with the lathe or do you like green paint?

It was made in the UK by Raglan and a very detailed account of them is in Lathes. co.UK.

Unfortunately, the poster's photos don't show enough detail about things like the saddle layout etc but regardless of that, it does look an excellent buy.

I was offered one sometime ago but it was too big to fit across my little shed.

More pictures please.

The lathe was build in 1954

It is not a milling attachement , its a part of the lathe you see , picture was taken inside the van

I have a 12 inch tool-room grade Chinese geared head lathe and it is far from being inferior. It was made in the No 17 Lathe factory in China and it is accurate to 2 tenths of a thou. at the mandrel. I also have a new Myford Super 7 which, whilst being a nice lathe does not compare with my Chinese lathe for rigidity, build quality and durability. Just thought you should be careful about casting all Chinese equipment as inferior. Unfortunately, Myford never quite understood the benefits of raised triangular beds for their hobby lathes or precision measuring rings on the leadscrews.

Here goes this hoary old debate again! I'm old enough to remember "Japcrap", then "Trywrong" now it's the Chinese. In the end you pretty much get what you pay for. Personally, I'm very happy with my Chinese lathe and think John Antliff is on the money. Cheers, Peter.
