Watchmakers lathe with three jaw faceplate chuck and 60 collets. For sale is a nice vintage watchmakers lathe with accessories. Probably manufactured by Marshall Peerless.Im sure someone familiar with this type of lathe can identify it precisely. It's in very good condition and runs well and true with no signs of play. The lathe is mounted on a cast aluminum Borel base that extends at the rear to carry a 115 volt Hamilton Beach motor which is working perfectly. The drive to the headstock is via a small leather belt.
The nickel plating is in generally excellent condition except for some minor wear on the top of the tool rest slide. It comes with a tool rest and selection of 60 collets in a wood holder and a very nice three-jaw faceplate chuck which is stamped Marshall (which is why its likely a Marshall Peerless lathe). Not sure how to correctly size the collets -- they measure 6mm (0.23 inch) across the threaded section and 7.6mm (0.3 inch) across the barrel (see photos).
All collets, including the three jaw chuck, fit the lathe perfectly and are pulled into the headstock tightly by the drawbar. But its proven too fine for the kind of work I do so after several years of it sitting unused (and much admired) on a shelf I feel its time to pass it to someone who can put it to good use. Please check the photographs which show exactly what you will receive.
Measurements: Lathe bed - 11 long x 1 3/8 deep. Headstock - 4 3/4" from back end of drawbar to the front of the headstock, height approx 3 1/2".
