So this popped up on Craigslist today for $75 and I was just curious if anyone has or has had one. From what I can find be its model number is 34-660 but I will confirm it tomorrow when I go look at it.

From what I have read they have steel tables and are belt driven. The power switch needs replacing on this one from what he said so in hoping I can get it for $50.

Thanks
Matt

Junk, be patient, and watch CL things go in cycles, here where I live wood lathes are a dime a dozen the last month. Trust me, it anit VINTAGE vintage is cast iron and steel, look at the plastic base, no matter what the top is.

Well that’s not always true. Just didn’t know if it was a good deal or not. I hadn’t found any that had sold to know if that was a good or bad price.

It does have a belt, but it’s a ribbed cog belt driven by a universal motor. That looks pretty rough to me for a $75 saw with a universal motor and broken switch, but it might clean up ok. See if they’ll take $40!
