I came across a lathe for sale, and it seems like it may be a good deal – but I really have no idea how to judge. I am completely inexperienced with all things turning. Here’s what the ad says (paraphrasing from memory)
36” Rockwell/delta wood lathe
The guy is asking $200 for it. From what I recall he doesn’t have a model number listed for it or a year of manufacture. Also doesn’t list the head stock to bed dimension (as I seriously doubt THAT’S the 36”)
So what should I look for and/or what questions should I ask? Any and all opinions welcome!
