I've been wanting to purchase a lathe and mill for quite some time. I came across this lathe and couldn't pass it up. It is in amazing shape with little wear on the ways and a pristine gearbox. This will be my first lathe and I'm looking forward to working on some projects. Will probably pick up a mill in the near future as well. Finally putting my shop to good use. I still have to clean it up and put the remaining covers back on after. An old machinist owned it and his son was selling it after he passed. He kept good care of it.
