No we did have someone try to get in but the intrusion protection system kicked in and stopped all outside access to protect your data, well what little we keep of it.

For Sale: Hommel UWG 2 Universal Machine Tool

Sat 19th Aug '17

Advert ID: 30671

Tools
Details:
The UWG 2 is an outstanding machine in concept, design, versatility and quality. This was originally supplied to the West German Army which accounts for the olive drab paint work on most of the items. It is used and has signs of use but remains in basically excellent condition apart from burring on a few of the nuts/bolts’screws. The machine consists of a baseplate (which can be used as a surface plate) and 4 inch / 100mm diameter column fitted with compound slide having screw operated cross and vertical feeds plus the option of lever operated vertical feed by the use of a simple clutch. The column can be swivelled in its socket in the baseplate against a graduated scale and can be returned to the zero position against a pre-set stop. It comes with various accessories allowing it to be used as a lathe or milling machine and photos show it set up in both configurations.
Includes 3 phase geared 2 speed motor plus spare motor, both fully working (it comes with an inverter); lathe headstock, standard tailstock and special tailstock to allow extra length between centres; fixed steady; compound slide (the small version); milling head to take iso 30/ 30 int tooling; range of iso 30 / 30 int tooling consisting mainly of various arbours including arbours for grinding wheels, drill chuck, adapter to take the UWG collets, small Clarkson autolock chuck with 4 metric collets for threaded shank end mills, ER32 collet chuck and various collets; rotary table; angle plate; boring head with No1 Morse shank; range of metric collects with various drawbars to fit lathe headstock, rotary table and milling head using the adapter supplied; mounting bracket for lever to operate the compound slide for slotting, keyway cutting etc. (no lever but simply made from flat bar); toolholder for fitting to the compound slide on the column for vertical slotting/keyway cutting or engraving linear or circular scales (in conjunction with rotary table used as dividing head); Hommel 4 jaw independent chuck/faceplate (one of the jaws has been damaged in the past and very neatly repaired and operates perfectly); catch plate/drive plate; small magnetic table and power supply, both fully working for precision surface grinding small parts; clamp for holding metal bar etc. when set up as circular saw; hand turning rest; toolholder for use on rotary table for spherical turning or radius dressing grinding wheels; various guards including guards for plain and cup grinding wheels; guard/shroud for rotary table; flat belt pulleys for grinding; machine vice; various special tooling and fixing devices, etc. Also included is the original operator’s manual which gives a comprehensive description of all the components and accessories available for these machines and typical set-ups. I used it solely as a milling machine and it performed some very intricate work. My reason for selling is that I find small work too trying on the eyes these days and I was hardly using it, so time to pass it on to a model maker or instrument or clock maker. It is also ideal for anyone who has limited space. The only fault I am aware of is the loss at some time in its previous life of the rear rubber foot so it is now sitting on a block of wood at that point. This is all packed away carefully in a wooden box for protection but for anyone seriously interested it can be unpacked - but I will not be able to run it. More photos are available. Details of these machines can be found at http://www.lathes.co.uk/hommel/

For Sale: Adcock & Shipley universal machine tool

Mon 14th Aug '17

Advert ID: 30632

Tools
See all ads from Bob Worsley
Details:
The Adcock & Shipley Universal Machine tool, best place to start is

http://www.lathes.co.uk/adcock&shipl...ion/index.html

for a description. It is the smaller of the two machines featured.

Dates from the mid 1950's and made for the submarine support vessels, according to the story.

You get a reasonable lathe, geared head, Norton screwcutting box, power feeds; a really nice horizontal and vertical mill with int40 spindle, geared head, power feeds; a pillar drill with mt2 spindle and a cracking universal grinder for tool & cutter, surface, cylindrical grinding with powered tool head.

It is not a large machine regarding work size, anything much over 12" or so on the largest dimension and you will be struggling. I have it in a single garage which works well.

I bought this a few years ago coz I fancied some model engineering in my dotage. Unfortunately Graham Howard of Brunell Steam Model Engineering, the seller of the castings has decided to run off with my money, £2300, and I can't face the legal hassles to get it back, so the A&S is redundant.

The machine was bought from another model engineer who had done it up, made a nice job, but it was missing all the grinder parts. I had also bought one of these machines years ago, missing most of the lathe but the grinder is complete. I have just scrapped my machine, keeping the mill and drill, and all the grinder parts have been combined with this machine to make it near complete. The only known irritating parts missing are the change gears, there is a screwcutting gearbox but there are an extension and metric set missing.

There are also all sorts of odds and ends, always fancied a universal grinder so collected bits like wheel centres, inside attachment, loads of grinding wheels etc. These are off of J&S, Cincinnati etc so won't fit, but you never know.

The A&S is located at Sutton on Sea, retirement! Will need some serious lifting gear to load, I have nothing to help over there. It was delivered by a company called Landylift, Steve Cox, so no doubt he could shift it again.

I am looking for £1500, cheap for an unusual piece of real engineering, might even be negotiable.

Information: Power Scraper

Wed 9th Aug '17

Advert ID: 30599

Tools
Details:
As even well used examples of power scrapers, e.g. Biax etc are still well beyond my means I was wondering if it would be possible to modify another sort of power tool to perform this function ?

Has anyone converted another power tool for use as a power scraper ? I wondered if a drill with hammer action that can be limited to 'hammer' only could be used ?

What is the action of power scrapers like the Biax, is it a simple reciprocating motion or is another action added ?

Any help or advice would be most welcome.
