I’m not selling it … below is a cut and paste of the ad.

This machine used to belong to my father, therefore it is in used condition. Overall it works well, except the tailstock is damaged. I do have a spare tail part here that I am willing to inculde with it. This particular machine has:
- Low Speed 19.5 to 50.5
- High Speed 122 to 315
- 16” swing with 60” between swing
- 10” 3 Jaw Chuck
- 6 thread and 96 per in
- 220 volts and 1 phase

Please feel free to contact with any questions via email or call at (937)974-6230.

Dan, How big is this machine? And how much?
It looks pretty rough, probably needs cleaning.

I had one like that once, and I rolled the trailer in the middle of the interstate. It didn’t do the lathe much good.

Insurance paid off and a tool guy picked it up so I didn’t have to get it to salvage myself.

I’m thinking it would be a fun tool … cast iron knobs and levers
