Default My New Lathe.

Call me patriotic but I have been after one of these lathes for years, they were build about approx 45 mins or so from my home town

Before I picked her up.



Well here is an updated photo of her new surroundings,
I haven't got room in my shed.

Make room!!! At least get her covered to keep the dust out. Looks to be in good shape. Want to tell us how much you paid for it?

$650 doesn't seem like a ripoff to me. Figured out what you are going to have to rearrange or remove to get in the shop?
