Most colleges will not buy those overpriced Harrisons of Peter
Rushtons because they do not meet current safety standards.Nowadays
the feedshafts and leadscrews have to be enclosed.Probably why the
training establishment got rid in the first place.
There is a college up here getting rid of all its Harrisons and
Colchesters which are unguarded.
Ex training school machines are not as well looked after as most
people imagine.I have seen lathes that looked immaculate but were in
fact write offs due to internal damage.It does not take a lot of 600
Group spares and a few hours labour to overtake the value of a small
BSA Machine Tools may be worth a call.They have supplied a lot of
machinery to colleges,training schools etc.
