I’ve got an 8-10 year old rigid lathe in excellent shape and I’m wondering what a fair price would be. Any suggestions? It’s in “as new shape” only used about 50-60 hours, 1/2 hp. motor and 4 spindle speeds.

Hmmm a mysterious double posting? Hope you managed to sell this.

Well, I looked on the Ridgid website and they didn’t even post a sale price. What did you pay for it?

A pic would be highly beneficial but the “pipe tube base” sounds like others have posted and which I also own, also sold by Sears Craftsman for maybe 20 – 30 years. As to your 1st question, it is admittedly unique, but works very well for any home work – also has outboard headstock thread for a faceplate. If you intend to do any such work, I certainly wouldn’t sell it because of the discomfort with the unique base. Price, sorry to not have one.
