Selling as it’s not getting the use it once did, and I also need the space.

 

I’ve added/replaced some items as follows...

 

Replacement compound slide

New belts

New tool post

New tools

New 4 jaw chuck internal & external

New (refurbished) tailstock & live centre

 

Possibly a few more bits but I can’t think.

 

This thing is HEAVY. I’d guess around 1/2 ton all in. I can just about lift the bed fully stripped down, so you will need two strong people and a van or trailer. I can help also.

The pictures have reminded me I also replaced the switch box and added an emergency stop.

 

The lathe itself was made around the 1950’s so it’s a good age and looks a little rough around the edges, but it works. With a little more tlc it would be a great addition to any workshop.

 

Any further questions ask away and I’ll do my best to answer them

 

Cheers

And on the way up swing by Swindon I’ll knock money off for the trouble

 

I have family down that way but they only have a small car.

Was thinking you'd include delivery, and I don't mind which route you take, go via Calgary if you so wish or the continent I really don't mind

Having done it these aren't too bad to move. Take the saddle, tailstock, head and drive unit off. ;) The results are a lot easier to handle. The bolts that hold the head down are often a bit looser than they should be as it's a common way of moving them. A bent spanner helps undo and do them up properly. ;) Don't ask why but I have a photo

A long spanner isn't a good idea.

 

Mine was bought back in a Passat estate in one piece but as usual one of the headstock bolts was a bit loose. I also needed to get it off to replace the headstock bearings mainly in my case because previous owners hadn't kept them adjusted. Mine hasn't seen much use. As they are proper lathes wear other than headstock bearings doesn't cause them much grief. Bed wear can cause them to turn a bit of a taper and the cross slides usually wear a bit so can't be adjusted perfectly. ;)Interesting to see what similar problems cause on a Myford.

 

I wonder if Joey is going down the Chinese lathe route. The things are a minefield. I'll be sticking with my 70's boxford ME10.

A quality metal lathe, all the parts are available and they roll on for ever, If I was the other side of the country or had a van it would be in my bunker by now

Gotta be worth hiring a van for a day or two.

That what I did to move it John. I stripped it all down and took it piece by piece. Even so still heavy. Plus there’s 25 steps up to my house and a half built extension to climb through hence the two strong people.

I wouldn't say they roll on for ever and Boxford have sold out of many parts but that lathe doesn't need any. The headstock bearings are standard parts, details can be found in the yahoo boxford group also I think on lathes.co.uk. Certain models may need a bit of a mod to the bearing covers. My ME10 is basically the same lathe but it has all of the features that they added to the underdrive models. That's mainly the style of power feed - it can be run up against a stop - do that on the earlier ones and "bang". They sold ME10's for a remarkable price until they ran out stock of some of the rear drive castings. ME stands for Model Engineer.

 

What makes them good is the design of the bed. In pristine condition they really are precision lathes and later take bed wear pretty well compared with other styles. Wear is something people have to put up with on used lathes. ;) All I can say on that score is some designs really suffer as they wear. Myford is an excellent example. Boxfords have often been used as workshop lathes = usually less use than say something out of a toolroom which is likely to be bigger and even heavier anyway. Some have been used by what could be called home turners - they make batches of turned parts for companies. That does wear then out more - n days a week of continuous use. The fact that these people would buy them says something about the lathe.

If only I had the space, this is ridiculously good value, especially when compared to a similarly priced cheaply-made thing that would be available from China.

 

I’ll bump the price up then haha nah it’s roughly what I paid for it so happy at that. I also need the space.

@joey24dirt Over on a Lotus forum, a member has just asked about a Boxford that was (but is no longer) for sale, so don't know the etiquette for non-members to be shown items advertised here. If you know that it's OK to do, and it's still for sale then I'm happy to put you in touch with each other. Andy

Again, another bump to see if can can temp anyone. A lad at work (who loves to drive) said he would deliver this if someone bought him a tow bar for his car . Not likely to happen then.

 

Going to advertise on eBay in the next day or so.
