    Default Hendey lathe eBay uk

    Looks like another Hendey barn find, this time in the UK. Itís been relisted, so I think itís OK to draw attention to it. The seller previously described it as a Centaur lathe, so maybe most people missed it first time round. Iím not interested myself as itís too far away.

    "Dry storage" seems doubtful. Why do so many of these unused machines appear with work still in the chuck?

    Dry storage?? It may be under a roof but that lathe is rustier than a ragmans trumpet

    Limy,I think that's 35yrs worth of living in a farm grade shed,the door will let the dew in. I'd like that,only I'm happy with what I have. It deserves a good home. My interest in engineering was kindled near there,at a little place called Hartlebury. Btw,aren't trumpets,even ragmens'ones,made of brass��

    Probably, BOTOH it's a very old saying from the part of the world I originate from.

    I paid $125 for a 12x6 Hendey in a similar state of rust and have been enjoying the process of dismantling, cleaning and repairing it. It is a project that keeps me out of trouble and is much cheaper than therapy. However, it is a big commitment for some one so I hope it finds a good home.

    They were a good chuck, took a lotta use and abuse, they were fine for production runs with bar or cut slugs, but IMHO the lack of a ground flat face @ 90deg to the axis could be a pain in a onesy twosey - breakdown repair type job shop.

    Nor did Taylors make an independent 4 jaw, which IMO with that angled slideway would have been a winner.


    FWIW The Taylor capstans were good, …...plain and simple but they did what it said on the tin and more importantly, kept doing it.
