$50 would be a deal. As is they take about $25 in material to stiffen up the body to make them usable and not bend under tension. After they get fixed up from the factory they are decent machines, they definitely need to be reinforced.

I believe they are going for $110 ish ATM new with a coupon.

Paul.

It is a Harbor Frieght 14X40 lathe with a 7-inch sander. New with all accessories and no coupon is $140.

+1 for Paul. Telll the seller what he really has and offer him $50.

It really does look like a higher quality lathe. I’d rather pass.

Found another one in Palos Park for $30. Has to go asap. I’m tempted to pick it up.

Paul, it would cost me $40 in gas money making it just not quite worth it to me.
