Hi, I have an Axminster AWSL 1000 Hobby Series lathe for sale, which is in good condition and fully working. The lathe was upgraded 2 years ago to the Speed Genie variable speed system and included a brand new 1hp motor. The variable speed enables you to rotate forward and in reverse (careful!) and monitors speeds between 100 to 2000 rpm. I have the original Axminster motor (0.75hp) and parts of the headstock should you wish to return the lathe to the original condition. As part of the sale I am including my Electra Beckum Dust extractor. Its quite old but is still working beautifully. I am also throwing in my old Axminster M900 lathe as “Spares or Repair”. The motor is still working and the bearings sound ok. The bed is good , with no apparent cracks. The body as a whole could do with a coat of paint. The tailstock needs some work, I bought a new mandrel some years ago , but it needs a new threaded piece. I have lost the front of the on/off switch, but would advise fitting a new NVR switch. I would like £550 for the three items, which I cannot split. I am based in Telford Shropshire.
