I found a pretty decent deal on CL for me at least. I picked up an old Delta Rockwell lathe from a gentleman on there. Model # 62-610 and it came with all the original tool rests and I mean all of them….Even got a book “getting the most from your lathe” No. 4703 by Delta copyright 1954. Also came with the original tools Delta Rockwell Catalog No. 130: 1” skew, 1/2” skew, 3/4” gouge, 1/2” gouge, 1/4” gouge, 1/4” parting tool, 1/2” round nose scraper, and 1/2” spear point all in the original box. With only half the tools actually being used…but all but 1 still have the rubber tips. The gentleman I picked them up from said he got it all when he was around 11-12 years old in NC, and has had them since. He used them very little then, and just didn’t fall into the hobby. I am so excited about how old these are and everything I am almost tempted not to use them. I know I got a great deal for this… and I think I am more excited just by the history of the tool, although never used….been around a long time, and run smooth as butter. very little rust on the bed, but I will take care of that with some steel wool and WD-40.
