So, time to sell my lathe. I moved it onto the bench seven years ago and have not turned it on since.

I'm spoiled with big King gearhead lathe at work so this has fallen into disuse. It needs a new owner.

Before anyone gets excited, read ALL of this, there's a lot wrong with it.

In fact, better to think of it as a parts lathe or a "lathe kit" that you might be able to make something decent out of later.

I bought this out of a now dead transmission shop in Richmond where I suspect all it was used for was polishing shafts with emery cloth.

The bad:
It is a "workshop" model, that means no clutch drive on the apron, just a half-nut drive. No power cross feed and no quick-change gearbox.
The bed is very worn about 6 inches from the chuck. It's ok for making bushings but on a long cut it WILL go out of whack.
I suspect the tailstock is not original as it has been badly shimmed to bring it into line with the chuck.
I have no change gears for it, so no thread cutting.
The half-nuts are half worn out so no thread cutting.
I changed the motor out for a more powerful one a few years ago but it does not reverse, I never ran the machine backwards so it's not a problem. I DO still have the original motor and drum switch sitting on a shelf.

The good:
Has a bigger chuck than the original installed.
Has a stronger motor.
Leather belt has been replaced with a flat rubber belt.
Has a quick-change toolpost installed.
Comes with a bit of tooling.
Comes with an extra chuck of questionable condition that I have never used.

Have a look at the pics below.

 Let me know if you want to sell the quick change a holders seperate, and same goes for thread dial.
 I have a nice Atlas milling attachment  ( I think can easily be fit) as possible trade.

 I may have to start using my South Bend again.

DEAL!

The tool holders are all yours. $500 and you can have them.

I'll even throw in the rest of the machine for free, because I'm such a nice guy.
