Heavy duty mill lathe combo

London Hackspace has a Chester Centurion 3-in-1 500mm lathe/mill/drill. This is a useful tool for tasks which are too large for our mini mill & lathe.

This is a dangerous machine, and is perfectly capable of causing serious injury. For this reason, you must be trained to use it. It's fitted with a key-switch emergency stop so that only keyholders can switch it on.

Please list here your projects


Oiling is critical to keeping the 3-in-1 in a good condition. The machine must be oiled before and after every use. The slideways should be oiled with slideway oil, and all other parts should be oiled with general-purpose machine oil.
