Myford ML7 1974 K118594 Imperial 240V £1000
Fantastic condition having been given a full strip, clean, respray and rebuild in 2017 and has hardly been used since due to unexpectedly getting a Super7. Please note this was not a full refurbish involving regrinds etc as I didn't feel they were needed having had an easy life. However I have replaced all of the bronze bushes, carriage & spindle shims, Tufnol tumblers, oilers & nipples, belts, saddle felt wiper, micrometer dials and any dodgy looking bolts/fittings etc. There is no rust and no free play in the sliding parts. Headstock and tailstock were re-aligned with a test bar/DTI. It is still wired up so can be seen running.
The sale does not include a whole lot of extras as I am keeping them for the S7, but I can include a TOS 3 Jaw chuck, tailstock centre, face plate & some change wheels (20, 20, 25, 60, 65 & 75)
Assembled pics were taken this week and the "in pieces" pic was taken last year before re-build. I have tons more images of the rebuild and can send more if you require so please message me with a request or any questions you may have.

Collection only from Stonehouse GLOS, but I could deliver to Derby area for fuel donation. Bank transfer (Lloyds/TSB) on collection would be preferred!

That looks like a lovely resto.
