Myford were no better then
My Super 7 with gearbox (and motor) cost the princely sum of £60 in 1958
(ish). It had one bed regrind a couple of years back and a replacement cross
slide screw and nut many years back (just about due another replacement) and
otherwise it is still going strong and accurate. ...... the motor isn't,
that's been replaced with a variable speed drive that transforms the
pleasure of turning.
I guess there are plenty of well used Myfords around. I wonder if the
imported models with have the same longevity?
