Topic tags/keywords: question

QUESTION: I have a Rigid 36” lathe that is about 8 to 10 years old. Because of changing work locations etc. , in the past, the machine only has about 50-60 hours on it. It has a 1/2 Emerson motor and 4 spindle speeds. I have been fairly happly with it in the past but was always a little unused to the “pipe/tube” base that the steady rest, etc. ride on.
The machine is in “as new condition” in all respects.
Your comments please on: 1) quality of the product (is it worth keeping, I also have a Delta Mini Lathe; 2) what would a reasonable price be to ask for the machine (pls.CAD or USD)
