Ceriani David Lathe

Just been to the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition and had a look at the Ceriani David lathe on the Chester Tools stand – as of 2016 looks like Chester nolonger distribute these lathes, so have added a link to the manufacturers pages:


Very nicely made lathe, the quality looks that much better than most of the lathes around at the moment. My only concern is the fixing of the top slide – two quite small bolts and if you look at the lathe the cross-slide is not that wide.

Has anybody got one of these lathes and experience of using it?
