    Wow that's a keeper. Hopefully it'll keep Mao or less good time when serviced...
  2. That's a shame, thanks for the heads up though! Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for all the advice guys! One more question, anyone have a good beginners lathe book recommendation? Watchmaker's and model engineers lathe by Donald Lecarle seems popular and easy to source Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  4. Quite sure the part is a spare vice jaw? There was quite a large bag of them. Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for all the replies folks! I picked it up and it's in remarkable condition, no play at all or even marks on the lathe. Collets are in good shape too. It belonged to a now deceased watchmaker who worked for Girard-Perregaux and then taught at the Irish Swiss Institute of Horology where he first studied. Pretty sure he purchased it when he started studying, around the early 60s I think. I also picked up a nice assortment of Gravers and two almost complete incabloc part assortments. Also, does anyone have any idea what the part being held up in the photo is? Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  6. If there is any wobble, is it possible to fit new bearings to the headstock? Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Vin. Going to look at it in a couple of hours. Fingers crossed Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk

    Guitar string is good for making click springs. A 0.09" gauge string like an high E from an electric guitar should work well Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks very much OH! I'll be sure to ask how old it is before viewing, and check what you mentioned when I see it.

  11. Hey guys, Today I have an opportunity to pick up this lathe for a pretty reasonable price locally (€300). I have no experience with a lathe and this could be my first. From the pictures is there anything noteworthy missing or damaged? Anything specific I should check when viewing it? Thanks so much in advance!

    Auctioneer Greetings!

    Welcome to the forum! CousinsUK have a good stock of Seiko spares. For more obscure parts and calibres Yahoo auctions Japan can be useful
