is a lot of watchmaker lathe equipment listed here. Take the time
to scroll through as there a lot of 10mm Levin setup I used and
then some specialized 8mm watchmaker lathe equipment. All of it is
in very good condition.
pictures show the index plates and other attachments which are listed and described on the
main sales page Watchmaking Equipment for Sale
Complete Set of Levin Index Plates (w/
Latch) for Cutting Gears and Pinions. This includes
several shop made latch plates to make some non standard parts. Hubs are
bored for the Levin 10mm lathe spindle; but I do know they fit my Levin 8mm Ball
Bearing headstock.; but you can sleeve them or make new ones for an 8mm
lathe. Every original no. plus some I made: 300,240,200,158,156 100, 98,
Levin spring latch and latch spring stop. This will fit ont ot the 10mm
lathe with no modifications. May need to make a mount for other lathes.
I used this set for years before I got the indexing attachment for
my 102. Now I cut everything on that lathe. Used this on a Levin
10mm headstock mounted on the milling machine listed below.
Levin WW 8mm Grinding/Milling Spindle.
(Retired Watchmaker) This spindle is in excellent condition. Ball bearings
are smooth with no crunchiness. This has two bases; one is the original
Levin grinding attachment base for mounting on the sliderest. The other
base is a very nicely shop made base to use the spindle for precision grinding
dowels and pins on a surface grinder (a poor man's centerless grinder).
Comes with the pulley for setup as a grinding attachment and knurled knob for
use as a spin fixture on its base. The base for spin grinding is a VERY nice
piece of work. The overhead pulley is incomplete and is thrown in.
Something I had lying around.
Levin WW 8mm Lathe Collets (Fractional).
Set of 13 Levin Fractional collets, incomplete but hard to find. 1/64
through 15/64 missing 9/64 and 3/8. The bores are all in excellent
shape. These can be a lifesaver when stock will not fit a metric collet.
Full Set of WW 8mm lathe collets.
(Retired Watchmaker) Set of 48 metric collets from .3mm to 5.0 mm. All but
two are hardened; the two soft collets (31 & 32) are Starret (two
lines) Four are
unmarked but hardened (single line), two are Schaublin (S), one is Deryshire
(D) and the rest of
the set is Peerless. These collets are used but not abused. The nice
thing about Peerless collets is that their keyway is one of the deepest enabling
them to fit most headstocks without modification. Collet tray included.
The picture includes the fractional collets listed above; but there are NOT
included; just the set in the bottom 7 rows (there are 3 extra collets).
I purchased the collets as surplus back in
1995. I had new bearings installed in the 10mm lathe around
2005 and have used it very little since as I then acquired everything I
needed for cutting wheels/pinion on the Habegger 102. I will sell
the Levin 10 MM setup as a set or in individual parts.
The lathe itself is the modern Levin 10mm lathe
with the 10mm collet holding tailstock. The tailstock is equipped
with a micrometric depth adjuster for drilling. The tails stock
and headstock are completely aligned. Included is the T rest and
Price for Lathe by itself is $750.
The full set of 10mm Metric collets is about as
clean as you are going to get. I got to be the one who removed
them from their tubes and I take care of my equipment. They are no
1-80 with half sizes from 1-10.
Price for the collets by themselves is $1800. SOLD
There are two 6 jaw bezel chucks. Both operate
The Swiss Alina has machineable jaws and has a lot
of material yet for machining to your needs. The price of the
Alina is $425 SOLD
The USA HR (Levin?) has hardened jaws. The price
for it is $375. SOLD
The 10 MM Levin Tapped faceplate is clean. It
is useful for a lot of work that cannot be clamped in any other
way. Price is $100 SOLD
The 10 MM Watchmaker's Faceplate is
Derbyshire. I do not know waht happened to the rod for the
centering point; but it can easily be made. Price: $100
Various 10mm collets. $10 each. SOLD
The price for all the 10 MM equipment as a set is
$3000 plus freight. SOLD
