I endeavour to offer for sale machinery and accessories that are in my considered 'opinion' very good to excellent condition or good value for money considering their age, plus hopefully, some interesting/unusual items. No paintbrush reconditions or digitally enhanced photographs!!!


All machines are located in the village of Kegworth, 0.5mile from J24, M1. Viewing by prior appointment.

Lathe beds, clutches, screws, nuts, half nuts, bushes, bearings, pulleys, backgears, apron gears, rack gears, bed wipes and covers, tailstocks, tailstock barrels, tailstock screws and nuts, changegears, handles, knobs, levers, fasteners, covers,  etc, etc, etc. A few 254 bits including lathe beds, aprons, tailstocks, screws, nuts, dials etc. A few oddbits for Myford VMC, VME, VMF mills such as table long and cross feedscrews.

Please remember, most of these spares are over 20 years old and some may show signs of storage and need a minimal amount of tidying up.

Enquiries by Email only please, with a Pt/No. if possible. Please be patient as the stock is in three different locations and can take a bit of finding.
