Hi guys, I'm about to purchase a Citizen E20 (screw machine) made in 1990, now i no you can go to 32mm from an E25 but can you go to 25 or even 32mm with an E20 machine...? The machine is at auction and it ends Monday so any info asap would be appreciated, we do a lot of 7/8 (22.225mm) work so its an important factor on the machine purchase.
Many thanks

I do NOT know that model but on ALL the other Citizen machines the smallest diameter that must fit over your bar is 1mm over the machine size. That means on a 20mm machine you will have to be less than 21mm without altering anything.

In the US, I've never heard of an E20 ... 16/25/32 but in UK i'm not sure.
That said, I have heard of people getting L20's up to 7/8" stock with modification.
Not sure if it's possible on E.
Good Luck.
