Boley F1 Watchmakers Lathe Set, 8mm


⭕ Boley F1 Watchmakers Lathe Set - one of the hardest lathe sets to find. Very clean condition. Delivery available or local pickup.

- 11 long lathe bed with 50mm center height, headstock spindle rotates smoothly with no end shake. Headstock has been cleaned, bearings are in excellent condition.

- Includes headstock, both tailstocks, bed and tool rest. Headstock has all its locking levers, internal index pin, drawbar and thumb drive lever.

- No chips on headstock pulley.

- This is the later made version with the superb updated motor. The motor is very quiet and has very little vibration. Motor on/off switch and reverse switch both work fine.

- Also included is the accessory set. A partial list includes: the 3 runners and tri-corner tips for the eccentric tailstock, plain runner, universal runner for the in-line tailstock with the small collet holding runner and centering rod that go inside the universal runner, 12 small collets, and 3 drums/lanterns for the universal runner. List also includes 3 jaw face plate and pump center, 3 jaw scroll chuck, set of ring step chucks, set of regular set chucks, saw table, roller file rest, saw arbor, wax chuck set, large wood lap on 8mm arbor, 5 lathe dogs, thumb drive cone and arbor for holding centers, Set of 12 centers, thumb drive plate for use with 8mm collets (thats the large round plate near the large collets), and a set of Boley marked collets.

- Youll notice there are 12 empty holes in the bottom right of the set. Boley started deleting items from the sets in later production but they kept most of the holes in the tray. In earlier sets there would have been more of the brass wax chuck inserts there that were pre-drilled for staff making (I guess Boley decided that the wax chuck set in the set to the left was enough).
