Limey Linda ....thats what i like about the CVA ...the gearbox is seperate and underneath it ....no vibration through the spindle and onto the work plus the carriage is nearly 24" wide ......i always fancied a hlvh but after using the CVA i wouldnt trade now.......my S&B vsl was nice but it had a hard life before i got it and couldnt get the precision i wanted but still a pretty solid machine..............always amazes me how S&B's make very little on ebay yet myford 7's and super 7's command premium prices .......


cheers

It's an Elliot Sturdimill universal - normally a horizontal but it also has a vertical head and a very rare slotting/shaping head with it. Came out of Borg Warners prototype toolroom so didn't have much use.

It doesn't look that heavy - the crane lifted the 2 Triumph lathes no probs but it really struggled with the mill. The bloke was amazed - it was a fairly new HIAB and rated at 6 tons. Of course he only lifted it on a short reach. He managed to lift but had to put it down in the middle of my doorway - we then had to put it on rollers and tirfor it into place.

Hi Andy,

Sorry, only just found this thread - there's an auction company in Chelttenham, AMS Auctions www.amsauctions.co.uk who regularly do engineering firm clearances...sad reflection on British industry that the receivers seem to be getting busier!

Hope all's well with the trailer by the way.

Simon
