Lathe for sale

  1. Need to make space for an incoming camper so my little used lathe is up for sale. It's a Raglan Little John, which is a well made British lathe from the '50s and '60s. It's a single phase 5" screwcutting lathe with 24" between centres and a decent bore down the headstock. The quirky thing is that it has an infinitely variable speed based on expanding pulleys, like a DAF Variomatic!! I've had it about 10-12 years and it's had very little use - I've made bushes, inserts and suspension links and it doesn't really warrant the space it occupies. There's a reasonable amount of tooling, including three and four jaw chucks, a centre steady, tailstock chucks, change wheels and plenty of cutting tools. There's a chip out of one pulley which has never affected it. I paid too much for it and will accept £500 for the lot if you can collect it. I can lift it up on a winch if that helps. PM me for a video of it running. Cheers, John 20200217_115552.jpg 20200217_115640.jpg 20200217_115323.jpg
