Lathe is sold, faceplates available
I have a 1958 Craftsman 103, 9×30, wood lathe in Power Gold. I disassembled this lathe completely, filed, tweaked, poked, prodded, and have it running better than new. The only thing I never got around to was repainting. I’ve made a lot of things on this lathe and hate to see it go but I’ve bought another project lathe and need the space. The stand is wood, not the prettiest but sturdy as all get out. $150 Cash or trade for decent CMS.

Rick, no kidding I just GAVE one of those to my brother, not a scratch on it and he took it to Missoula.
Harriet, my neighbor to the west moved into a elder facility, her son cleaned out the garage, and he gave me the lathe for being a good neighbor to her.
