Jerry, we own a large molding plant and we buy a lot of things on industrial auctions. I see a lot of good deals on industrial auctions since so many people are being forced out of business by this rough economy. I have seen a number of good deals on some very nice lathes even some duplicator lathes. I think that it might pay you to be patient and check things out. Perhaps you could get your hands on a small lathe in the mean time just to get the feel of things and satisfy your appetite while waiting for the right one to come along.
