Axminster Craft series Lathe. AC240WL

Most important thing to mention, there is NO tailstock. This lathe was mainly used at my day job workshop as a disc sander or for small chuck mounted work, the tailstock casting ended up getting damaged in storage.
Whether a replacement can be obtained or a home made solution be made, I'm not sure. I've included the MT2 quill and advancing wheel if someone fancies a go at the latter. Also included is the original faceplate and an Axminster evolution tool post (16mm) which was used with the Axminster mounting table when used as a disc sander. I've kept the table for my home lathe so that isn't listed.

Tool Post

The lathe was purchased Feb 2020, it has been used quite a lot but is in good working condition. Bit of surface rust on the bed ways, not too bad.
Item will need to be collected from Greater Manchester.
£100

I do still have the tailstock. A big chunk of the corner has broken off, I still have the piece if its any use. Ill take a picture when I get home and upload it so you can have a look. I think it locks ok but I've never used it with the tailstock in its current state so couldn't say for certain.

Bump. Still for sale.
Tailstock has been reassembled (quill refitted, etc). Corner is still broken off, but locks down to bed. Cant comment on how safe it is (and won't even guess).
