For Sale: 'Strong-Arm' electric hoist - 400kg lifting capacity

Wed 22nd Nov '17

Advert ID: 31472

Tools
Details:
This item is advertised again as a result of a failed sale. It's a 'Strong-Arm' mains powered electric hoist made by Clarke having a 400kg lifting capacity.
It's 'as new', having been used only three times to shift and position my lathe, milling machine and arbor press.
These are for sale in Machine Mart in excess of £100.

It's on offer for £55.00.

I'm also offering a lifting frame made by 'Haltrac', which I've modified to accept the 'Strong-Arm' hoist. The frame stands about 7' tall and around 5' wide where it meets the floor, and can be assembled using just four bolts.
It's been used to lift engine and transmission units without complaint and stores inside a wooden box.

This can be had for just £25.00.

These are available COLLECTION ONLY.

Hi Folks,

I'm after a Power Hacksaw similar to the Clarke SM18/1, the pump has packed up on mine, and refuses to behave no matter what I do to it(pest), I have plenty 14" x 1-1/4" blades, so would like to use them.

I don't really want a small general Bandsaw, but a robust type may be more acceptable, I frequently cut 8"+ bar or beam, so an abrasive cutoff saw wouldn't really suit either.

Thanks for viewing.

Advertising on behalf of a friend whose father has had to give up model engineering due to ill health.

It was given to the previous owner as a retirement present as production manager of Mullard Electronics, Southampton where it is believed to have only been used lightly. It has a single phase motor which was probably fitted when it was donated. The machine is in excellent conditon only having been used for model engineering since leaving Mullard.

It has all the original equipemt plus several of the optional extras listed in the brochure and there is a stack of cutting tools etc plus the original instruction book.

There is a comprehensive description of the machine at http://www.lathes.co.uk/acieraf2/
There are a lot more photos plus a full scan of the brochure at http://photos.app.goo.gl/2zTTwRU6Nqf2qvb53

To my mind it ought to fetch at least £2500 but it HAS to be sold so the owner is open to offers. It is located in Eastleigh (between Winchester and Southampton).
If you contact me I will pass on the owner's details.

Information: 3.5 inch Driving trailer by LBSC

Fri 17th Nov '17

Advert ID: 31437

Models
Details:
I have almost finished the driving trailer designed by LBSC which appeared in the Model Engineer as a short series starting in November 1951. I am however missing the article (and hence the drawings) of the brake gear. Would anyone possibly have the article or drawing showing the general arrangement and details of the brakes? I would like to finish the trailer to the original design if possible being an LBSC fan. Photo copying charges and post refunded obviously or better still an emailed scan. Thanks in advance.

For Sale: Dore Westbury Mk 2 Milling Machine

Fri 17th Nov '17

Advert ID: 31434

Tools
Details:
I have been asked to clear a deceased friend's workshop. For someone requiring a winter project, there is a part built Dore Westbury vertical mill. Progress so far is that a base frame has been built from angle iron, there is a very nice XY table, much nicer than the standard table, fitted to the base. The quill has been superbly built by another friend, a very experienced tool maker. The base is fitted to a very nice wooden base/cupboard which will probably go with the machine. I looked for the rest of the castings and material today and as far as I can tell, everything is there. Also in the workshop is a Warco 5/8" drill press in very good condition, along with a large range of hand and power woodworking tools. Please email for photos or any other details. We are open to offers for any tools or machines, the figure posted is to satisfy the site requirements.

I don't think that this was intended to be used with different sized collets as the collet is retained by a ring of 5/32" steel balls of which a few may be missing. The collet seems to be for 3/4" shank cutters but being split rather like an ER collet it closes down to about 18mm.
Taper is in good condition and it has a drawbar thread.
