    Hallo there. I am interested just a few questions. Is the spindle hollow? What is the swing over the bed? Is there a gap or removable gap? I am at Maryborough 4650 north of Brisbane. Cheers Ali.

    Hi there

    The Myfords were a 3.5" centre height lathe. Excellent price for that machine.

    How much wear is there in the bed?
    Any backlash?

    I’ll add my 2 bobs worth. A 1951 lathe will have some wear in the bed. How much will depend on things. Can such conditions be rectified? Certainly can.

    This lathe is a toolmakers lathe. A fine instrument with great capacity for its size. The is no plastic gearing in this machine.

    It seems a good machine for the price.

    Excellent machine for the price - and especially in such good condition. Would give any modern equivalent a good run for its' money.

    Please note: this Myford lathe is not longer available for sale.

    I sent a message to the moderators requesting to edit the post accordingly.
