My vintage tool guy just called me with a PM Lathe totally restored for $650.
Totally rebuilt, new paint, new motor, new VFD switch for push button speed change, wired 110V, comes with a few face plates but no live center. I’m in the dog house, so I doubt I can buy it.

Anyone interested, pm me and I’ll shoot you a picture.

It’s in central WV, about 30 minutes out of Charleston, WV.

Lol, he’s a guy I found responding to a CL ad. I bought a bandsaw and jointer from him; now he gives me an early peek. I’ve passed up some painful offerings by blowing my budget on silly stuff. I missed out on a pristine vintage Unisaw and PM. Missed out on an 8” PM jointer with helical. Missed out on a Hussey molder. He’s a really nice guy; very honest dude. He just loves getting new vintage tools and fixing them up. A man’s only got so much room for that kind of stuff in the shop.

Thanks BWW. I just missed out on a giant Yates lathe too. It was simply too massive.
