Sold: Toyo Sakai ML-1 high-precision Miniature Lathe
Sold: A used Toyo Sakai ML-1 high-precision Miniature Lathe
Designed and developed during the 1950s by Mr. Sakai, owner of the Japanese Sakai Special Camera Mfg. Co. Ltd., the original Toyo ML1 was not intended as a commercial proposition, but to help with production of his large-format box cameras.
Of delightfully simple construction, yet cleverly-engineered, the precision ML1 is 590 mm long, 260 mm wide, 175 mm high. With a 50 mm centre height and a capacity between centres of 250 mm the lathe is ideal for watch, clock and instrument work.
