Myford Super 7 lathe - stock code 2551

A Myford Super 7 that I bought some years ago, it is in particularly nice condition and has spent the intervening time in the small workshop up at the house. In addition to the lathe itself, there is a large amount of equipment and tooling - most of what you would need to build a locomotive or traction engine from scratch.

  • Friction setting cross slide & topslide dials

  • Thread dial indicator

  • Maker's handbook, copy of Ian Bradley's "Myford ML7 lathe manual"

  • Welded steel stand

  • Cover

  • Pratt Burnerd 3 jaw chuck, internal & external jaws

  • Pratt Burnerd 4 jaw chuck

The machine runs very quietly, turns accurately and the saddle runs smoothly from one end of the bed to the other.
