Myford ML7 bought about 6 years ago- a project I never got around to and am really too busy. It's a tri-lever with the Norton screwcutting gearbox, but is additionally on a heavy duty industrial stand with a well and fluid run off together with all the switchgear for the 2 speed dahlander motor. it needs coupling together with a 3 ph inverter and it would be almost unique. ( i did quite a bit of searching for spares when i first got it and couldn't see any ML7s with this configuration It came out of the old Birkenhead fire service vehicle workshops when they were due to be demolished. It was moved carefully and I have not touched any of the boltwork as it is clearly packed and levelled on this stand. it's stored on a level concrete floor in a dry brick built shed. Its a project: badpoints- two of the back gear sprockets have missing teeth, one of the drip oilers has a broken glass vial. There's no tool holder but the tool base bit is all there- there's a tailstock but no centre, and no key for the 3 jaw chuck (I suspect this was all taken to the new workshops). I have been unable to properly functionally test the motor as I have no 3ph, although i hope to have this done by a friend in a couple of weeks. However, i am a spark and have tested the motor with my testmeters as well as all the associated mechanical switchgear: and all seems OK. Everything turns as it should and I cant detect any obvious play in any of the bearings. The motor is off in the pictures as i did the tests but the pulley, belt and mountings are all there. Advertised it on ebay back in August to test the water and had several offers around the 700 mark but did nothing at the time as suddenly had to work away. So that's my guide price: i'm not going to take less initially, I'll see what people think first: you'll need to liaise with me and find a time i can meet you there as i don't have dry storage where Im living at present: its an hour away- Wallasey CH44, Liverpool area. i have a twin axle plant trailer and could deliver it subject to us coming to an agreement- any other questions, i've loads of pics but i dont think i can list more than 1 here: please ask
