Well used. But, not abused........  :thumbup:

I'm sure, that collection could tell a lot of machining adventure stories.

One with the lot springs to mind (Hamburger order). This really seems a great buy if you are in the market for one. Not that I have room for it plus shipping to OZ would likely be twice the purchase price.  :doh:

Argh, it's local to me as well!

Unfortunately I'm not local to myself right now!!! Mind you, I haven't got the cash OR the space, frankly.... Guess I'll just have to drool at it like everyone else.
Cheers!

Nice as it may be Ade, it still has a very limiting spindle bore. Stick with your Edgwick  :ddb:

Hi Andrew - I've no plans to move the Edgwick on, I've thoroughly enjoyed (and hope to continue enjoying) using that lathe... however, I wouldn't mind a smaller one as well... the Edgwick is great, but on small diameter stuff, the max speed of 670rpm becomes a bit limiting.

Hmm. Not that I ever seem to DO any small stuff....
Cheers!
