I purchased this machine from a local individual. I have purchased other vintage woodworking machinery from him in the past (see http://www.owwm.com/PhotoIndex/detail.asp?id=965 and http://www.owwm.com/PhotoIndex/detail.asp?id=967). It seems like he always has good equipment at fair prices.

This lathe is in really good mechanical shape. The paint is a little rough however. For $850, the machine came with both inboard and outboard face plates, spur center, ball bearing live center, and the original wrenches. In addition, it has the matching outboard turning stand. I bought the HSS Rockwell turning tools for a little extra.
