Used Lathes For Sale

We usually have a small stock of used Swiss machines and keep a list of customers looking for specific items. Consequently, many machines are never listed here. If you are looking for a particular machine please send an email with the name of the machine you are seeking in the subject line and I will add you to the list.

We have a number of reliable contacts in Switzerland and can often source both new and used machines and accessories.

Meyer and Burger UW1 universal machine tool. Rare opportunity to purchase one of the best examples of this iconic Swiss machine. Supplied as a used machine by Brunner Machine Tools in 2010, it was described by the late Edwin Brunner as  “in outstanding condition with almost no wear on the original scraped machine bed” – it has had almost no use since then. The machine is also possibly the most comprehensively equipped machine ever offered on the UK market having almost all of the accessories shown in the various catalogues (see archive section of the site to download catalogues). Many of these accessories are now extremely difficult to source.
