Axminster AWVSL1000 Lathe
Little used, complete with stand

This popular lathe from Axminster is ideal for a beginner or for a more experienced turner perhaps wanting to take the next step up from a table-top lathe.

Rated as a Hobby series lathe, this machine boasts a between centres capacity of
1100mm (43.3"); and swing over bed of 370mm (14") for bowl turning.
The headstock both rotates and can be slid along the bed to the most comfortable working position. Spindle thread is the popular 1" x 8 tpi and the toolpost diameter is 1" (25.4mm).
Motor power is 1 HP (0.75 kW) and the mechanical variable speed system gives a
stepless continuous speed range from 500 to 2000 rev/min.
The lathe is offered with a live centre and faceplate, ready to go to work, and is complete with the manufacturers leg stand.

Due to health issues, the present owner has had little opportunity to use the lathe, which accounts for its virtually 'as new' condition, despite its being 2 years old.

The lathe is currently located in Oxford where it is available for collection.

Priced for quick sale at: 280

Kelton Discontinued Ranges

Various Kelton Products

Kel McNaughton has been 'rationalising' his product range again, leaving us holding several very attractive but orphaned babies - sorry- tools.

We have a few Hollow Form Mandrels and matching Faceplates, designed to enable a hollow form to be held on the lathe whilst the chucking recess is removed from the base and final detailing is applied.

Also to be found are ER16 and ER25 Collet handles, heavy duty 1" scraper blades suitable for mounting on a 5/8" tool shaft or similar, as well as various components of the Kelton Sharpening System, and of the Carving clamp

Please call or visit the shop to check availability and specific pricing.
There are, however, no current products such as centre savers, Kelton hollowers etc. For those, please refer to the
Kelton Tools pages of this site.

How does it Work?:- 

This page is provided as a service to our clients.  If you have second-hand equipment which you wish to sell, then (provided that you are a regular client of this shop) you are welcome to use this space to provide details of this equipment to our other visitors.  This is not a free-for-all site, it is strictly for the use of our clients, and its content will be moderated and controlled by yours truly.  Please be pre-warned that we will not allow the page to be used to sell in conflict with our own sales activities or in conflict with with our principles.  Use is also limited to sales of directly woodwork-related items.  We'll allow up to about three months exposure before we remove an advert and please note that you MUST tell us if you sell the item in the meantime so that potential buyers are not mis-led.  Our experience indicates that the most successful thing to be selling on such a page is used machinery - such as your old lathe when you've invested in one of our lovely WivaMac machines!

To request an "advert" to be placed, please drop me an email giving full details of:-

  • The item(s) to be sold - NB: we suggest listing no more than a couple of items per advert.
  • The selling price - and the currency in which it must be paid.
  • Your exact location (so that viewers know where and in which country the goods are located)
  • A contact telephone number that can be published with the information.

If all looks OK, then it will be published as  soon as time allows.  If the advert content or style is inappropriate, then I'll advise you that we are not prepared to carry the advert.  We will not enter into discussion over our reasons for such decisions, as we have better things to do with our time and a good reputation to protect!  I don't want to sound too judgemental about this but this page is intended to help out our client friends, not become a destination in itself.
