This is a full size floor lathe. It has a pattern follower for duplicate turning. Motor is 110vac at 1/2hp with 3 speeds changed by pulley. It has a threaded take off for outboard turning (7/8” x 16tpi), but I don’t know how a tool rest would be set up. The inboard thread is odd in that it is 1 1/8” dia X 12 tpi. This probably would require an adapter. A tail stock is included. The frame is angle steel with a pipe center support.
I got this lathe from a friend who was at an auction. It’s been in my shop for 5 years during which I used it once. It’s taking up valuable room and needs to go, even if it’s to a scrap yard. Not being a turner, my mini lathe serves most needs.
Asking $150, or make an offer. Ron 610 698 9937
Located near Allentown, Pa.

I live in Scotland and don’t need yet another lathe but this is a nice little machine and has to be worth all of $150+ surely to someone.Seriously worth that. Alistair

There is no model number displayed. Why, I don’t know.
Shipping is out of the question since it weights a lot and would need crating. Those costs added to the price would buy a decent Delta or jet lathe.
This is best picked up in your truck and driven home if not too far.
Just being straight with you.
