Topic tags/keywords: lathe turning

Perfect lathe for a dedicated function (buffing) or for someone that wants to try out turning or even for a portable take-anywhere lathe for the seasoned veteran turners.

What’s included:
- Lathe (12” center to center, 1/3HP), 1-8 TPI
- Electronic variable speed control (no pully changes whatsoever!)
- Live center
- 4 prong drive spur
- Faceplate 5 3/4”
- Knock out bar
- Wrench to install faceplate
- Optional: Metal stand (standard mastercraft metal stand)
- Optional: 3 Turning tools (see below). 1/4” Parting tool, 3/8” gouge, 1/2” skew (non-HSS)

I’ve replaced the smaller handles for zinc cast handles. They are plenty strong!

I’m asking for 100$ Brand new, this lathe sells for 170$. I can possibly include the turning tools that came with it, however they do hold a special place in my heart since I’ve made maple replacement handles for them and these were my first turning projects! I can also include the metal stand for a small supplement if you want.

I’m in Boischatel, close to Québec City. I often go near Mtl to see family fairly often, so there’s probably a way to meet somewhere. Note: I don’t want to ship the lathe, so I’d have to sell locally
