I recently purchesed a few pieces ofold arn. A walker turner lathe, powermatic pm 50 6 inch jointer, and a belsaw 12.5” planer, $600. Here are a few pictures of the lathe and jointer after cleaning up a little. I haven’t started on the belsaw planer yet will update on that one later.

Still have to install the cutter head, it came with 4 sets of blades, 2 sets were new, but im really debating on a byrd shelix head. As for the lathe, those are the cleaned up pics, i polished all the bare metal and beds, but i liked the old paint, and it was in pretty fair condition, so for now i think she will stay as she is
