    Ive come by a very old Cunliffe & Groom metal lathe (just moved house and it was left by owner). It has not been used for decades and is not in a running state. There are quite a few tools and change gears with it. No motor though. I had in mind to perhaps get it running to be able to make parts eventually for a CNC router why I joined here, but having just moved house, even that project has dropped off the list. I really need the garage decluttering. Is it worth anything more than just scrap value?

    got any pics of the machine ?

    Some pictures would be needed. Cant find anything for Cunliffe and Groom apart from being a machine tool supplier so this might be a suppliers name plate rather than a manufacturers name.

  5. Sadly it's worth sweet FA. C&g manufactured drilling machines and lathes in Manchester from 1864 until 1954. this looks like a classic pre-ww1 English lathe and is a very weak design of headstock & bed suggesting its an earlier one.
