  8. Colchester Student Lathe, Time for a clearout, My Colchester Student 24" roundhead has to go, 240volt plugs in to mains socket, comes with .... Dickson quick change tool post, spare holders, ceramic tipped tools, boring bar, tipped parting tool, various tipped facing & general tools, boxes of tips, 3 & 4 jaw chucks, face plate, fixed steady, running steady, suds pump, halogen 12v light flexi light [check out the price from RS], 2 running centers I still boxed, tailstock chucks, boxes of drills, centre drills, small indexing head that bolts onto the toolpost so the lathe can be used as a lightweight mill, loads of stuff to go with the machine, too much to list, Its not a toolroom lathe, its a few years old, as you would expect, there is some minor wear, but all slides are tight, its an ideal jobbing lathe, its got me and a few mates out of trouble a few times, it will have to be removed by purchaser, it will come into 3 major parts, for easier removal, and, as due to ill health, I am not allowed to do anything strenuous, its up the back of my garden in my workshop, and will have to be manhandled down the garden unless a long hyab can be obtained to lift it over my garage, I think it weight about 600kg I want £600 for it, with EVERYTHING I can find pertaining to the machine, other than stuff I use for engine building, Ian 07954180622, south hertfordshire, 10 mins from the M25 j20 or 10 mins from M1 J7
  9. Andy Im feeling for you fella, I may be in the position of not being able to work again due to ill health so Im in the process of selling up lots of stuff, probably the car too, moving house, and right out of the area to somewhere I can afford so i can be mortgage free wanna buy a V8mk2 cortina, yours for 8k, lol,
  10. OK Chaps I have the house up for sale at the moment,and need to clear lots of stuff in a hurry, could be a good deal for somebody,------ What I have is- 205 short engine, on standard bore, 2 x 2l engines, incomplete, not sure what is missing, but I dont think its a lot, 2 x Heads, one big valve I&E but cracked across a seat, it may weld, But!!!!, the other is Big valve I think, cant be arsed to go and check, I bought this lot so I could build a good killer pinto, and owes me a few quid, its not for splitting, but im sure you could make a killing on EBay if you wanted to. I need this shifted in a hurry, so its got to go by tomorrow night FRIDAY!!!!, I want £100 for all of it, I live just north of Watford, 10 mins from the M25/M1 junction, Ian, tel 07954180622,
  11. Hi Chaps, I having a moving house sale and need to clear some of the multitude of stuff 22years in one place has left me with, This could be a bit of a bargain, but I want this gone, Its a 88mm Holbay stroker steel crank, Not for a cosworth as its 6 bolt, But it will physically fit, Im 99% sure its on the original mains and pin sizes and dosent need regrinding, I have had it checked for straightness and came back without a problem. I think with the right big bore 2.4,is practical, and possibly a 2.5 with the right linered block I also have a NEW steel flywheel but has turned rusty over the winter, so a quick cleanups would be required, these only go as a pair and I will not split or take offers I want £300 for the pair, and need them to go quite quickly, otherwise they would be Ebayed, Ian, 07954180622
  12. Another oddity I have for sale is a NEW single rail gearbox, this is NOT a recon but a genuine NOS box, and has never been bolted onto anything as there are no witness marks on any of the bolt holes, it has factory plastic plugs fitted ans when I took the top of the box off to have a peek inside there was none of the obvious smell of Gearbox oil, which as you all know you cannot get rid of no matter how you try, it only has had assy lube splashed around it. a nice thing for a restorer, got to go so realistically priced at £100, Ian 07954180622
