    I've had much fun with this lathe, and my kitchen is now replete with bowls plates and spice pots.
    Now I'm turning my attention to restoring an '82 Yamaha 350 XT, and my tiny cellar needs some drastic reorganisation - hence the departure of this very addictive machine.


    It is a Coronet Major, complete with an extremely wide range of chisels and attachments, and I'm open to offers.

    I love stuff like this

    Have you modified it to take the polishing wheel or is that part of it originally?

    It does look like a polishing wheel doesn't it -- in fact it's a white grinding stone which is essential for keeping a good edge on yer chisels. The cover is home-made.
    Polishing the work is done while it spins in the chuck, and a wide variety of materials can be used, from fine sandpaper to kitchen roll. Wax and oil can also be applied at speed, for a really lustrous finish.

    The head can be turned through 90 degrees to allow large bowls room to turn, and the pulley system gives three speeds.
    I'm thinking an offer in the low hundreds would be a good investment for someone ...

    There are lots of forums and websites showing what can be done, well worth a look.

    You really are very talented @sunbeem

    Your ability with wood and metal is most impressive.
    I hope you find a buyer who can really put your lathe and tools to good use :Thumbup:

    My problem too Nels, but false modesty aside, the wood is the star -- if the stuff was made of plastic ...?

    Thanks for the good words.
