Apperley are specialists in buying, selling and reconditioning used honing machines, all the machines listed below are available to be bought as they are or with a tooling, consumables, delivery, installation and training package. We buy and sell internationally.
This is the very first Apperley TUBEHONE ever built, and has been used in our contract honing workshop since new. Although now 30-odd years old it is exceedingly reliable, with only the odd oil leak letting it down. Regularly upgraded with new electrics and control systems, it is a proven tough rugged tube hone capable of honing parts 25 -125mm diameter up to 5000mm long. The control system is so smooth that with special tooling it can hone down to 6mm diameter, and so powerful that it can hone up to 500mm diameter should the need ever arise.
A exceedingly powerful, constant force push expansion tube honing machine, capable of honing bores up to 800mm diameter and 4.5m in length. Currently this machine is being overhauled and repainted and will, in due course, be operational in our subcontract department.
This is our old pre-coat filter that we have used for several years in our contract honing machine shop and is offered for sale in excellent working order with new filter discs.
It has the capability to filter up to 60-ltrs of honing oil every minute , which means that is can be matched with high capacity tube honing machines, and it provides filtration down to 5-microns, which means that the honing oil remains as clear as the day it came out of the barrel.
Like it's sister machine the Delapena Autospeedhone is the go-to machine for honing small bore parts, the difference between the two being that the Autospeedhone is more suited to larger batches (say 50-off plus).
This machine is complete with cycle timer and is ready to go.
Often called a Nodding Donkey the Delapena Beamstoker is a really adaptable machine. capable of honing small diameter offset bores in large heavy parts, engine blocks and cylinders up to 750mm diameter.
This is a great example complete with worktable and coolant filter unit, price does not include tooling or Friction Feed unit.
This is a great little Bench hone, an ideal starter machine for people who want to learn how to hone without investing too much money.
Perfect for one and two offs, but not really designed for mass production, this SINGLE PHASE machine can be used in a garage or shed to hone car, motorbike and jet ski parts.
This is a specially adapted Autospeedhone S machine that has been modified to be able to hone bores up to 36" long, making it ideal for gunsmiths who need to work on shotgun and rifle barrels.
Mandrels suitable for bores of this length are not available from either Sunnen or Delapena, and the new owner will need to have the skills to be able to cut and shut off the shelf tooling to suit their particular applications. We can show prospective customers how to do this and will give all the necessary back up and support.
This is an example of the Delapena new generation Speedhone EA machine. This hone has a variable speed 1.5kW rotation motor which benefits from being able to electronically control the spindle's acceleration and braking throughout its range of
The EA (automatic) version varies from the EM (manual) machine as it has a power stroking facility which automatically strokes the workpiece back and forward across the mandrel making this machine more suitable for larger batches.
nb We usually use an auto machine for batches >50.
Delapena Speedhones are the go-to machine for honing parts small enough to hold in your hand. The design has remained virtually unchanged since the 1960's and this Speedhone is in great running order. It has years of service left and is ideal for either 1-offs or full production work.
This is an old Speedhone that we have taken in part exchange, it has a noisy transmission and a blown suds pump, so it is being sold as a non-runner.
It won't take much work to get it back into tip top condition, so make us an offer and grab yourself a bargin.
This is an example of the Delapena new generation Speedhone EM machine. This hone has a variable speed 1.5kW rotation motor which benefits from being able to electronically control the spindle's acceleration and braking throughout its range of 250 - 2500 rpm.
One of two Speedhone EM that we have in stock. The EM is the manual version of the latest generation Speedhone and this makes it suitable for small batch work (up to around 50-offs), for larger batches we would recommend the EA version.
Pemamo honing machines use diamond plated laps to achieve very tight tolerances and this machine is suitable for honing large batches of small diameter parts to micron tolerances.
Pemamo use special diamond plated lapping tools to achieve very tight tolerances and are perfect for finishing large batches of parts to very tight tolerances. The EH model has a powered stroke mechanism which de-skills the process even further.
This Sunnen HTC machine is a non-runner that we are offering ‘as-is’. It is one of the very first machines that was built as a result of Sunnen acquiring General Hone and moving European production to Switzerland. It is in good mechanical condition, but the MPS system has been taken off and kept by the original owners, meaning that with a few modifications to the control system it could be retrofitted with either Sunnen ‘Portable’ or Delapena ‘Friction Feed’ tooling and used as a lightweight machine to refurbish hydraulic cylinders. It comes complete with a good Cosema coolant filter unit.
Unusual to find one of these machines priced an under £75,000, we are offering this machine at the bargain knock down price of just £12,500 until such time as we get round to overhauling and rebuilding it.
This machine started life with a 1,5m stroke but has been extended and is now capable of honing tubes up to 3000mm long. It is currently undergoing a full overhaul and refurbishment and will be available for demonstration and sale in around 3 to 4 months time.
Sunnen MBC-1800H machine in good condition that is suitable for honing medium and large batches of large or irregularly shaped components. The machine is in excellent working order and will be fully serviced prior to dispatch
This is a highly sought after 1804 with power auto-stroking and integral coolant filter. Ideal for cylinders, barrels and liners as well as numerous small parts up to 100mm diameter. This machine is fully commissioned and can be demonstrated running under power in our Cheltenham UK workshop.
