|Thread: Older/cheaper lathes|
if your buying off ebay ask if you can look it over first if you win look for any play in the head make sure all the teeth are not broken off any were I brought a lovely little lathe then got it home and found a lot of play in the head I adjusted all I could that took a lot of the play out but found out it needed a new set of bushes that as now gone and looking for something better now I am going to look at an Atlas lathe soon he wants £150 for it. It looks to be in great condition the bed looks good and there's no play in the head it will need a lick of paint but looks like its all there ATB Phil.
|Thread: Atlas Sphere Lathe|
he as two other lathes that he is keeping I have seen this lathe running and cutting everything seems to be in very good order all gears on head stock seem to have all there teeth nothing looks missing from what I can see there is a big yellow box full of bits and a bag with gears in it there are gears fitted to the machine all gear guards seem to be there. Even the thread dial counter is there its a Atlas sphere model and looks the same as this on
