I am bidding on this lathe. Currently winning the bid at 68.00 think I can win the bid for a very fair price. I have never had any experience with running a lathe. This lathe comes with chisels, accessories.
I hope to clean it up and give it a fresh coat of paint and possibly re sell the lathe for a profit. And I have thought about learning how to use a lathe and maybe get into making things with the lathe, not sure though. Not sure if the lathe would be very beneficial to us or not.
I know there are a lot of members here who use lathes and love them. Anyone have any advice on this older Rockwell Lathe.
Here is a pic of the lathe, after a good cleaning and fresh paint it will look really nice.
