For Sale: 1hp three phase motor

Tue 7th Oct '14

Advert ID: 20849

General
Details:
This is a Brook Crompton Parkinson 3phase 1HP motor, frame size is D80B shaft size is 19mm Dia, it was manufactured as 415V star only but has now been converted to star delta. the speed at 50cycles is 1400RPM so it is ideal for use with an inverter. I bought this motor 20years ago with 7 more and it has sat on the shelf ever since and judging by the base I do not think it has ever been used. I have tested it on a inverter and it runs very well so it has got to be worth £50 I would prefer cash on collection but will ship by Hermes if required please email with postcode for quote and photos.

Details:
I have a couple of inverters supplying power to my Lathe/milling and small drilling machines.
Have had these fitted for some years now which when the first was used I seem to have seen stated in the handbook that it is always best to leave in a standby condition as continuous start up, when commencing work, from cold affects the long term performance of the electronics.
Have tried to find this information in the handbooks that I have without success. From our brethren can anyone advise me as to which is the best way to go, cold start or standby.
I do not like leaving any form of electrical power on in case of malfunction and possible fire.

Mon 6th Oct '14

Advert ID: 20830

Tools
Details:
I have acquired a near complete (minus link & bracket) unit with a MT4.5 nose adaptor so its likely that it came off a D1-3 equipped machine. The draw tube is too long and the one piece spindle adaptor does not fit the M250 mandrel.

Does anyone have one for this machine who could supply any details of what I need to make or experience / pitfalls of similar adaptations. Hydrafeed were very quick to supply a parts diagram and instructions but I don't want to pester them given that I'm not likely to be able to afford to buy their solution.

Details:
I have a number of Mikron bits, the current use of which is as a capstan to make short runs of parts for a local business. However the head I need to use is the No19 with a large bore. It would be much more efficient if this had the quick release of the No20 or No18. Has anyone got some pictures, and preferably dimensions that would help me make such a thing? The ones on 'lathes' don't show enough of the mechanism and one of the other heads I have is the No11 which has quick release but operates very differently, so not much good for a direct copy. Thanks.

Wanted: Drawings for 2 inch Plastow Fowler Princess Showmans Traction Engine

Wed 1st Oct '14

Advert ID: 20777

Details:
Drawings for 2 inch Plastow Fowler DCC Showman Traction Engine (Princess)

Hi there,
I am hoping that there is someone out there, with, ideally, a Full Set (preferably) of Drawings for the 2 inch Plastow Fowler Princess Showmans Engine.

I believe that the full set comprises of 16 drawings, broken down as 9 drawings for the Engine including the Canopy…with an additional 7 drawings for “Additional Details” for this Showmans Engine.

I have just recently taken on a part-built engine, which was started over 35 years ago…by the father of a friend of mine. Unfortunately we could only find a couple of the drawings…
…which, sadly, are so badly faded as to be virtually un-readable.

Now…my eyesight isn’t as good as it once was…so in an ideal world, I am really looking for a set, in which the detail, and dimensions, can still all be made out.

In addition, if there was anyone who could not only supply me with the set of drawings…but also help me by letting me know about any drawing “errors” or omissions…(as I am “aware” that there are anomalies in the drawings.)…then I would be very grateful.

Please contact me by email to let me know what you have got…and the price please.

Many Thanks,
Adrian Nicolson (Neebs)

For Sale: ¼ HP Crompton Parkinson single phase motor.

Wed 1st Oct '14

Advert ID: 20775

General
Details:
This is a very effective British made motor offered at a low price. Ideal for someone working to a tight budget requiring a good quality motor for a lathe or other machine. The motor is some years old and is very well made and runs very quietly and sweetly without vibration. It is reversible.
Crompton Parkinson ¼ HP split phase motor 1440 rpm resiliently mounted in a cradle and has been PAT tested. The cradle has four fixed 5/16” studs, one at each corner and an array of useful holes along each side. With some small pieces of angle iron and a bit of ingenuity this motor can easily be made to fit any small machine such as a lathe of drill. It has a ½” diameter shaft and comes with a 3” diameter pulley for a Z section V belt.
I prefer that buyers call to collect the motor so they can see exactly what it is like and witness electrical safety testing.
£15 collected or carriage to be paid at cost by the purchaser.

For Sale: Rare Myford MF-36.M Lathe for restoration

Tue 30th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20767

Tools
Details:
I have one of these which was dismantled and put away when I got married 18 years ago. It's described on Tony Griffith's site (lathes.co.uk) as the "Myford Four Inch Precision lathe" from the early 40s. I gather that only around 20 of this 36" bed model were ever made, and only one or two seem to have survived. If you look at the details on the page on Tony's site this one has the pressed steel stand/chip-tray with integral countershaft mount and front-mounted countershaft tensioner wheel, so it's probably one of the very last they made.

It includes the usual accessories - fixed and travelling steadies, various gears for the alternative leadscrew speeds, the original spindle drip-oilers a single phase motor and switchgear etc. I only ever used a chinese 3-jaw chuck with it, although I think there might be an original 4-jaw one in the box as well.

It has suffered some corrosion in storage (mainly on the parts that were removed like the chucks, tailstock and saddle) and frankly I was considering scrapping it and canibalising some of the parts, but several people have suggested it would be an act of vandalism to scrap such a rare lathe without seeing if there was someone who would want to restore it!

I'm open to offers - either cash or useful things that people might have going spare(tools, a rotary table, boring heads, milling vices - anything considered) - the £150 cited below is only there to indicate it's not free because it's worth something to me as parts. I think it's unlikely it would fit in the postbox so this would be collection only.
