With a heavy heart I have decided to sell my Emco Maximat 7 lathe and milling machine. It has been a great machine for me, but I'm moving on. I built a CNC mill and will be moving to a different lathe.

I bought this from a knife maker who used it as a backup lathe for pin-making and screw shortening. I have used it sparingly for general restoration work.

The machine is in very good condition. There are a couple nicks on the ways, but nothing serious and not a significant amount of them. Everything works as it should. I never used the milling head, but it is hooked up and works. I never had a drawbar for it, but I believe it's a simple M10 bolt. The gears all look sharp with no missing teeth and as I metnion below, it does have a full set of change gears. I should be able to fine the original manual for it. The only change I made to the lathe was I put an 0XA wedge quick change tool post on the cross slide, which comes with the lathe. The original tool post comes with it.

The only thing wrong with it that I can think of is the reverse button broke. I have one of the button halves and its the same as the other buttons. It doesn't impact the function, but wanted to point it out.

It runs on 110v.

The machine comes with:
* the original three jaw chuck with extra jaws (maybe outside jaws, I never used them),
* a full set of change gears,
* a spare factory backing plate,
* a collet closer with a set of collets (I'd say half are schaublin collets and the others are a brand I dont recognize, but appear to be quality),
*traveling rest, and
* a tool holder and some various HSS tools.

I even have the mill quill handle and draw bar guard, which I think are often missing.

The machine is on a Davis & Wells wood shaper as a base. It's bolted down and quite solid. Presumably the shaper works, but I'm not much of a wood worker and used it primarily because it's the right size and has some mass to it. The actual top that the lathe/mill is mounted to is a piece of 3/8" aluminum bowling alley. It looks like wood, but is really just aluminum. The table top is 24" by 42", but it is oversized and could be cut down several inches in both directions. The stand goes with the machine.

It's under power now and can be if you want to take a look at it. It's in my garage with alley access and I will be moving the machine to the front of the garage for easy loading. Loading will, however, be up to you. I'll help as much as I can. My wife and I have moved the machine itself several times, and I have moved the base myself a couple times, but I've never moved both together, so disassembly might be the best option. I leave that to the buyer.

Let me know if I can answer any questions. I'm asking $2,200.
