If post at vintage machinery site might find more buyers. I would not offer you more than $200 to $250 for your lathe if satisfied with lathe operation. At one time reconditioned Oliver lathes sold for $1,000 think those days are long gone. You might get more people wanting to buy parts of your lathe. If were me would demand take the whole thing.

Not much difference in later pubs found at web site may help dating late.
