Wood turning lathe, a Coronet 'Major' woodworking machine for sale in remarkably good order.
Very good condition with minor light rust on some unpainted parts - but mostly greased-up. Very robust solid construction. The main tool mount is a solid 2 inch diameter round bar, so a little light rust ain't going to hurt that!
Chances are that you know exactly what this is if you are looking at the ad. These were made as a 'do-it all' woodworking machine. It comprises a circular saw-bench with adjustable table for height and angle, a 4 inch wide planer thicknesser, a wood turning bed with tailstock, mortise tool, can be used for all kinds of work.
In all honesty, its function is best as a multi-purpose tool rather than an out and out wood lathe.
Even though the pictures may not do justice, this machine is pretty much all there, with the original single phase 'Gryphon' motor. The only glitch is the starter for the motor - external component easily replaceable - is a bit touchy, and does not always hold in when starting.
It all works and there are various spares, face-plates and sundries to go with it including spare planer blades, a spindle moudler bit holder and couple of cutter profiles and a selection of mortise drill chisels that will need sharpening or refurbishing.
Other sundry parts and attachments are quite often available online.
Ideal for making furniture components, but great for delicate work like cigar-box sized boxes for fishing flies. I have used it for general domestic furniture repairs and so on. Due to problems with my hands I won't be able to use it much more.
Home made heavy stand ( and I mean heavy - I bet the basic lathe on the stand weighs in at quarter of a ton or more!)
Buyer collects - you'll need the right transport, and I can load with a small forklift.
£595 or very near offer, cash on collection please.
