Not much for pictures in the add. It would be nice to know if there were any steady or follower rests, chucks etc - some information on the size, power? Obviously a pretty good size machine.

Ought to have read the rest of the add! Perhaps a 24” swing? Power is complicated.

I would like to upgrade my lathe but not with that one. The electrics look odd to me, and the deal killer is no DRO

Reminds me a bit of this $2500 used lathe for sale that the owner describes thusly: "Great little lathe everything works"

I'm always hesitant to check such sellers other ads, lest I find bags of human excrement for sale labeled as "fresh organic fertilizer."

We have fresh developments in the sale of this "Great little lathe" It now comes with "4 dog chuck and 3 dog chuck. New extra dc motor and controls " and has been reduced from $2500 to the nice round figure of $1470!

I'm sure it's worth every penny after viewing these freshly added pics:

But don't fret folks the seller assures me that it is just "surface rust"

IDK about you, but I'd be asking for a 30 day warranty if I were going to consider purchasing this lathe.
