Default Lathe Willson 6"

Not mine, but I was interested in it.

A Willson 6" (I think) lathe for sale in South Wales, 650.

Go on preloved.co.uk and search for Willson lathe.

Seems cheap for a decent but old British lathe with a few bits and pieces.

If you want a Colchester there is a roundhead Student on homeworkshop.co.uk as well.

Sounds like you want one of the oil county lathes, designed to machine the drilling pipes so very large bore.
