    Like Sean did on the Deckel forum, it would be nice to have a permanent list here of your lathes. Please post make, model, aprox year, notable acessories and photo if possible.

    If you want to make changes later, weeks later after self editing is impossible, such as add a photo or whatever, please copy and paste the pertinant wording from your old listing and use that to create a new listing with your changes or additions. Go ahead and post the new creation and then contact me and I'll delete the original.

    IMPORTANT- Please do not make followup "comments" about a listing in this registry. We need to keep it "lean and mean" such that it is nothing but a registry of members machines.

    Make: Mori Seiki
    Model: MS850G (for Gap)
    S/N: 10152
    Year: Unknown, but I suspect 1970s (and I'd be interested to learn an exact date if anyone has the information to date it). MS850 #14373, allegedly sold new in 1989, has the later style of badge (more of a decal instead of the cool metalflake plastic badge)
    Swing over bed: 17.125"
    Swing over cross slide: 9.75"
    Swing over gap: 25.562"
    Distance between centers: 33.375"
    Width across ways (total): 14"
    A1-6 spindle with MT4 adapter
    Tailstock: MT4
    40 feeds (both cross and longitudinal)
    RPM: 32-1800
    Threads: 80-4TPI, .5-7mm, 112-8 DP, .5-3.5 module
    Cross slide travel: 9.625"
    Compound travel: 5.875"
    5hp 240/3 phase motor
    Net weight: 4079 pounds

    I bought it equipped with:
    Steady rest
    Follow rest
    Standard 4 position indexible tool post
    JFK 5c lever-type collet closer
    12" standard 4 jaw chuck (no brand name)
    10" Yuasa "set true" 3 jaw
    15.75" face plate
    Carriage micrometer stop
    Trip block for longitudinal feed

    Added since purchase:
    8" Bison 4 jaw chuck (purchased new)
    8" Bison "set true" 3 jaw chuck (purchased new)
    Multifix "B" tool post
    Assorted live centers (standard and bull nose)

    Here's a photo of the lathe when it was delivered. Not all the accessories are shown with it, and the red lifting hooks and wheels belong to the rigger.



    cheers,
    Michael

    Make Graziano sag12
    Weight- 2200lbs
    swing over bed- 12 inch
    swing over permanant gap- 17 5/16 inch
    swing over carriage- 6.5 inch
    distance between centers- 32 inch
    spindle bore-1 5/16 #5 morse D1-4 camlock
    speeds with dual speed motor- 75 to 2,000 and 38 to 1,000 RPM ( slow speed not working yet)
    Threads-6 t0 46 TPI or 1/2 that by changing one drive gear and .75 to 5.75 metric plus some modular pitches?
    Lead screw- 4 TPI
    cross slide-17 inches long ,5 7/8 wide 6 5/16 inch travel
    Compound 4 5/16 inch travel
    Tailstock travel-5 11/16 #3 morse taper
    Motor- 6 HP two speed although 3 HP single speed was standard I think.
    Gearbox-Speeds are changed at the carriage by switching different gears by electric clutch giving you speed changes on the fly and instant stop or reverse while the motor is running.(very cool)
    Bed-This seems different to me as it is removable from the main casting and also adjustable to centerline of spindle.
    Details- This is the lathe I bent the spindle in but replaced it and it runs perfect now [img]tongue.gif[/img] Aloris BXA toolpost came with it and seems to be a good fit, it came with a jumbo feed dial but replaced it with standard size because the big one interferes with the compound and I put a single axis microsyn Newall DRI for the cross and Travadial for the long axis.

    Make: Dong Yang (Korean liscence Okuma)
    Model: LS
    Year: aprox 1985 Purchased new from close out of dealer in LA.
    Swing over bed: 540 mm (21"+)
    Swing over cross slide: 14"
    Distance between centers: 1500mm (59")
    Width across ways(total)15.5"
    D1-6 spindle nose with #6 Morse internal taper
    Tailstock: 2 speed with rapid move lever, #5 Morse taper, roller bearing lift and slide to move.
    Feed Ranges: 64
    RPM: 35-1800
    Threads: inch 4-56 Metric .5-7mm Module .25-3.5 Dimetral pitch 8-112.
    Cross slide tavel: 10.6"
    Compound travel: 5.5"
    Main Motor: 10 hp. 220/208 3P.
    Net weight: 5510#

    Came with steady rest, and faceplate.
    Tooled up to have: Aloris CXA tool block and assorted tool holders 20+
    Heavy duty "tri bearing" Royal #5 morse center. #5 morse Royal CNC style center (extended point)
    Jackobs "Ball bearing" drill chuck #16 1/8"-5/8"
    Chucks include: Buck 10" 3-jaw. Pratt-Burnerd 10" 6jaw adjust true. 8" Cushman 4-jaw. 12" Willis 4jaw. Jackobs RubberFlex collet setup. Lexair 5-c collet nose closer.

    Unusual features: Hydraulic spindle brake. Uses automotive style disc brake on the motor output shaft. Pressure switch drops main contactor when the foot pedal is pushed and the brake is applied. Has very rapid breaking of spindle.

    Has unique index system to cut multi lead threads. There are reference marks on the spindle nose and a zero mark on the headstock casting. To cut a multi lead thread you cut the first lead normally. Then rotate the spindle to the zero reference mark, disengage the lead screw using the gearbox levers, rotate the chuck to the mark on the spindle for the number ot leads you are going to cut and re-engage the gearbox lever. Repeat for each lead.

    Has very nice tailstock with two methods of moving the quill. Has a handwheel like a normal tailstock. (angled to ease use) Also has a quick acting lever that works like a drill press handle. Can back a drill out of a hole quickly and return and never loose the depth on the handwheel micrometer...very slick.
    Tailstock has rollers to ease moving holds tailstock up when not clamped. When clamped rollers are compresed and the base of the tailstock rests fully on the bed.

    Has bed mounted trip stops for stopping the power long feed. Mounted to a rail on top of the base, with micrometer adjustment, and quick in /out sliding dogs. (casting)

    Has distance collars on the long feed handwheel. Keeps track of number of turns and distance moved (compound collars 2 moving at different rates)

    Has compound cross feed micrometer collars that keep track of turns and thousants on diameter..(2 as with the long feed).

    Headstock shifts to neutral with lever at top of headstock for ease of dialing up a part...
    Cross slide is machined for "T" slots to mount a back tool block or fixturing. Cross slide is fitted with a 3 position turret stop and slide.
    Cross feed screw enclosed in oil bath with sight glass.

    Fit and finish very good! Not a cheap copy but a nice industrial machine.



    Cheers Ross

    - Multifix tool post
    - Rohm three jaw
    - Collecting some collets but very hard to find
    - Newel DRO
    - ISCAR tooling
    Great little lathe. The only thing I could wish for is a spindle brake and perhaps a threading dial. But without the spindle brake I can't thread very easily anyway.
    Needs new paint and a little Deckel to keep it company!

    Make is: Takisawa - Importer was Webb, one of many who imported this model.
    Model is: TSL 800 D
    Mfg in 1983
    Twelve speeds with a two speed motor. I am running it with a VFD to convert to three phase power. Speed range nominally is 55 to 1800 RPM's
    Designated as a 14x30, there is no extra capacity on either axis.
    A1-5 spindle nose and MT3 tailstock.
    Weight is 2,400 lbs

    I purchased the lathe from an Ebay seller in So. Calif and transported it myself on a trailer. Unloading was a solo effort and a learning experience.

    It came with a Royal collet closer and a 12" face plate. I have added a 10" Yuasa four jaw chuck and a Bison adjust-tru 8" three jaw chuck.

    Hello

    Viceroy TDS 1/1 GB L made by Denford UK.
    website at http://www.denford.ltd.uk/

    A high quality lathe made to traditional English standards.

    Swing 10"
    Between Centres 24"
    Spindel bearings Timken taper adjustable
    Speeds 60 to 1300 rpm
    Gross Weight 900 lbs
    Screwcutting range 4 to 224 TPI
    Cross feed and carriage feed
    Spindle /Tailstock 3MT
    Bed cast iron, hard chromed, double Vee
    Motor 1ph 3/4hp

    This lathe was purchased by the first owner in about 1979 and imported to New Zealand. That was at a time when obtaining foreign currency required a special import license. Those were the days when you could buy a new Porsche in New Zealand, and sell it 2 years later for more than new price. Import licenses were very difficult to obtain. For that reason, there may only be a very few of these lathes in NZ. The first owner was able to justify the purchase because of his company and occupation.

    The lathe was purchased by a fitter&turner who owned/maintained a bottling company in New Plymouth. He only used it for Model Engineering. When he passed away, a friend, a fitter&turner and fellow model engineer then purchased the lathe from the estate.

    From there, it was sold to a "dealer" who was also a model engineer. He only kept it for a short time until on-selling it for a significant profit. About 4 years ago, it was sold to a production engineer in Warkworth. He used it for rebuilding racing kart engines.

    I purchased the lathe mid 2006 ago. I live in Wellington, NZ so I had to drive 1480km to collect the lathe and bring it home.

    On the whole, this lathe has seen light service despite its age. It hasn't been thrashed in the educational system like many similar lathes of this size. There is no chuck rash on the cross slide. It's in generally good condition and includes:

    a quick-change 4 way plus 2-way tool posts.
    an old modular quick change tool post system (not a Denford item)
    Denford taper turning attachment,
    live centre (but no dead center)
    3 and 4 jaw chucks
    face plate
    driving plate (but no dogs)
    2 drill chucks
    boring table (made by the second owner)

    It needs some overdue maintenance so I have begun to strip it down for a clean. Anyway, my intention is to strip down the lathe, clean, relube and reassemble so it will last another 27 years.

    At the time of writing, I have completed the saddle, apron and tailstock. I am currently in the process of trying to remove the spindle to clean out old grease.

    The only significant problem I have found is bruising on the bed where something has been clamped on. The image below was the as-delivered condition before I did anything to it.

    DryCreek's Takisawa TSL 800 by Webb appears to be
    a direct clone of my;
    1976 MAXTURN MAX 800 DELUXE by YAMAZEN USA INC, TAIPEI Branch.

    It now sports a 8" 6Jaw Buck Chuck(made in USA) and
    adapted to the A-5 spindle via Kalamazoo Chuck
    Mfg's AS-307 mounting plate. Half the price of a
    Sino-made BuckChuck plate! Buy Kalamazoo!

    Model: HB 500/575
    Year: Cannot tell but motor says made in 1963
    Swing over bed: 18.25" approx.
    Cross slide travel: 9.625"
    Distance to centers: 35.875" approx.
    Width across ways: 16"
    Chuck: Cazeneuve type with 3 set screws

    The lathe came with:
    Standard quick-change tool post with 12 tool holders and 2 boring bar holders
    3 carriage stop brackets
    1 Trava-dial set-up and two extra brackets
    Foot brake
    Tracing attachment and hydraulic pump
    Way too many soft jaws (pallets)
    10" 3 jaw chuck (unknown manufacturer)
    8" 3 jaw chuck (unknown manufacturer)
    Hardinge 5C chuck with adapter plate
    16" flat plate
