Was digging around on cl, and found a few things for sale, now, question is, did i do ok, or did i get ripped off? I bought a walker turner lathe, i believe is 12” swing over and 36 or 38 inch bed, with the cast iron stand and the stand for the outboard rest, a 13 inch belsaw planer with the moulding attachment, and a fairly new motor, and a powermatic pm 50 6” jointer, all seem in pretty good to great shape and just need cleaning and small surface rust removal from storage. Now for the important part, was $600 too much for all three?

In my neck of the woods, you did good assuming you don’t have to do a lot of restoration work.

There is that planer here in WI for 550$ is that the one? Other wise I would say you did well.

No restoration, just minor cleaning. The planer was $300 and included the molding/gang rip attatchment, the jointer $150 + 3 sets of knives, and the lathe was $150 + 11 craftsman chisles
According to the serial number, the lathe is circa 1947 and variable speed through a reeves drive
