You are bidding for an IME 8mm Watchmakers lathe, in original box in absolutely superb condition. It comes complete with 16 collets, tailstock, retracting (lifting) hand rest and a leather drive belt. (Note Motor not supplied). There is an excellent description of this lathe at
I bought this lathe at an auction in a weak moment and was told it had never been used. It certainly looks to be in excellent condition, though the box is a little battered. I have not used it either, hence this auction ! I do not know if the collets are original equipment or a later addition but there are 16 of them in a variety of sizes. The photos give a better description than I can but I will be glad to answer any questions you may have if I possibly can. If you require more detailed photos of any aspect then please ask and I'll try to put some up on a website somewhere.
No reserve, and low =A3150 initial bid so pick up an absolute bargain !
