I am downsizing my shop and would like to trade my Grizzly G1495 Heavy-Duty Wood Lathe for a Grizzly G0658 Heavy-Duty Bench-Top Lathe. I am the original owner of this fine machine and while it has served me well, I now feel that a smaller bench-top lathe would be more appropriate and require less floor space. Pictures and more specific information can be found on my website:

$550 or your Grizzly G0658 and $200 cash.



(Local pickups in Ida, MI 48140 only please)

I was thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were recovering. Thanks again for all the great mahogany!

Hi abkma,

You are certainly welcome. All of the mahogany is now gone. The last three pickup loads went for firewood….Sad but it had to go….As for my health, I’ve rounded third base and am headed for home plate. Currently wearing an IV backpack 24/7 and get a shot of antibiotics every 10 seconds. Thursday will make 6 weeks of this last ditch effort. Only time will tell whether it has worked or not. If it hasn’t, well then, at the minimum there is major surgery ahead…..
Thanks again for your purchase and I hope you are enjoying it. It does make it special when you know where it came from, doesn’t it. I built some jewelry boxes with it and every time I see it, it brings back special memories.
