I bought this lathe on Craigslist for $150. Photo was bad, information sketchy, but I drove through a freezing rain and sleet storm to make the pickup. This is essentially a Delta 14/11 x 36 gap bed lathe. It has a Dayton 3/4 hp 1750 rpm motor. I got it with a set of 8 Craftsman turning tools. Two were high speed steel, the rest, well probably not. Also got 6 calipers of various sizes in excellent shape. It also included (for who-knows-what-reason) a Square-D reversing switch similar to those found on Homecraft shapers.

Bought this from the son of the original owner. He also had a Dewalt 9" RAS from 1956, a Craftsman 6" jointer, and a Craftsman benchtop saw, none of which was for sale.
