Capacity : Extract from machine spec. More can be found on the Web. The ML7 lathe can turn a maximum diameter of 7" over the bed and 10" by 1.5 thick in the gap; between centres. The ML7 can handle material up to 20 in length and or a little more if you allow the tailstock to overhang the end of the bed. An ML7 is around 42" long and occupies a space about 22" front to back.I have owned this particular machine for many years but never used it anything like the extent anticipated due to changed circumstances. Mechanically it has been kept oiled and greased and in good working condition throughout, though paintwise has some cosmetic deterioration, mostly due to storage before I acquired it. It is equipped with a 3-jaw main chuck and both a Tailstock chuck and centre, and a travelling magnetic clamp for dial guage etc plus a new toolstand and a few tools, mostly new and unused.
It also has an ML7 Instruction Manual, see picture. The item "Myford ML7 lathe Dark Red with Coolant Tray and Bench" is in sale since Saturday, September 8, 2018.
