One sold recently here in Southern Ontario for $460.00 or thereabouts! I was tempted but already have 2 lathes,,,, bid and won on a magnificently made UPT instead.

Just taken it off the bed and is sitting on the back of the stand. You can see it behind the lathe bed 20 seconds into the video. In fact, going a step further, Iíve actually managed to get myself an additional tailstock, one of the sensitive lever feed tailstocks like on the 90CW model...so I now have two!
