I’ve been wanting a lathe for a while but money being what it is that hasn’t been too feasible till I got a call from another local woodworker. It was 2.5 hours away in Buffalo, 300 or trade for hunting equipment. A call later and we were soon working on a deal for my rifle; since moving to upstate NY I haven’t been able to use, not legal to rifle hunt in the 3 counties I hunt in now, and I still have a shotgun for hunting. So a family outing to Niagara Falls was in order with a stop off on the way home to make the swap.
It was dark when I took this, but the whole thing fit in the trunk.
10×36” set up. Included a number of chucks, 30 chisels though I think half look like bench chisels and all but 4 need new handles. A 9” disk sander set up, 3 different size tool rests, the original wrench for adjusting the tool rest arm, and a couple of other attachments including one that exactly matches the bottom of a coffee can to make a bead tumbler.
It has 4 speeds, the motor has been upgraded to 1/3hp which I will upgrade further at some point, and and the bearings were all replaced. The paint job is new as well except on the stand which has the old delta decals on them. I will need to locate another tool rest arm in order to use the largest rest.
