Is this laguna 18/47 platinum series lathe worth 1800.00? Im not sure how old it is and don’t know if it’s made anymore, jus saw it for sale and was thinking. It’s supposed to be in good shape, owner says he dosent use it any more.

Is that lathe worth $1,800? Don’t know have not seen or heard it run! Yes cannot find that lathe at Laguna web site so guess they dropped it. Can still get parts for it if Laguna no longer stocks them. Grizzly G0733 is the same lathe. Other than color difference probably made in the same factory. A new G0733 delivered would run you less than $2,000.

Included G0733 page so can see manual, parts list, and prices of those part in case buy the Laguna and cannot get parts from them.

To save $136 dollars would at least go look at the Laguna, and if runs good and comes with chuck & jaw sets shown would buy that. Remember don’t know how from your home have to travel to see it.
