Thread: SOLD: Sieg C3 with DRO
Well... this week is very much bittersweet; as mentioned elsewhere I'm sadly selling my trusty Sieg C3 lathe :cry:
It has been a great little lathe, however I've bought a mint condition Boxford 160 TCL to take its place (Needs upgrading first though...!)
The C3 lathe is in great condition; VERY little usage. It has digital readouts (DRO) on both axis's and a digital spindle speed display on top. This is the metric leadscrew version, and has the cam-lock tailstock. It was bought from ArcEuroTrade not that long ago.
When it arrived I tore it down, cleaned, degreased, put-back-together, and tuned it up; until it was running very well. Since then it has had minimal usage, just the odd part or two in aluminium and brass.
Attached is a photo from a while back (apologies for the poor photo). I cleaned it up really well last weekend and moved the lathe out so will update the photos over the next few days.
- Sieg C3 Lathe (obviously!)
- Cam-lock tailstock
- Drill chuck and arbor
- Quick-change toolpost + holders
- Several lathe tools
- Both sets of jaws for the 80mm, 3 jaw chuck
- 2x new suitable bearings should you want to upgrade the headstock
- Large custom manuals (LOADS of info in these!)
- Some odds and ends, like extra gears and what not. + Probably some other things I've forgotten. ;)
Cash on collection is preferred; but open to other sensible payment means. (And no; STAMPS not accepted! - yes, I've been genuinely asked on eBay is someone could pay for something I was selling with stamps!!! )
Anyone wanting to have a look over the machine can do before hand; totally fine with me - but I assure you, no issues with it
I'm asking *only* £350.
Bargain if you ask me! :naughty:
Any questions, drop me a PM or give me a ring.

You'll be sorry when this goes,Dan.
In the past I was forever buyin tools and then sellin them on when strapped for cash...never again will that happen.
Ahh... I need the space :(
Plus the CNC lathe was bought as a direct replacement. I know what you mean though; I'm sure the time will come where I think "if only I had a manual lathe; I could just jump on and turn this down a bit..."
But the CNC mill, and now this CNC lathe should be capable of most jobs :)
Just a little bump... :)
Still for sale; needs to go within 2 weeks.
This lathe is now *sold*.
Many thanks to all who have PM'd interest.
