Topic tags/keywords: lathe question

see here

Just curious on the maker for this. I’m not really in the market for a lathe, but this is different than most Craftsman lathes usually posted for sale around here.

thanks,
peace, T

Looks like something from Harbor Freight, or the like, could be worth something, but less than $50.

Thanks guys.
I was wondering about it mainly because it seems to have iron rails rather than the ‘tube’ type of most less expensive lathes. There is a Craftsman 12×36 Copy Crafter Wood Lathe with a copier attachment here . It was $175 and now down to $150.
But I am mainly looking for a planer and don’t have much room.

peace, T
