Sorry if that sounds rude, but I have no time for games, you won’t get any run around from me! Here is a extremely nice South Bend 10 light Lathe as shown. This was a restoration project of a retired machinist, who unfortunately did not get to enjoy it for very long after completion. It runs as good as it looks, everything works as it should. The lathe runs very smooth, VFD gives you infinitely variable speed, magnetic starter and auto carriage stop installed for safety. Motor has been upgraded to a Modern Dayton unit. Dorian tool post included, as well as a drawer full of USA Made blazed Carbide tool bits. The Taper attachment cross slide was installed to facilitate the installation of the DRO Scale, the original cross slide is in the drawer… If you want Taper, you will have to source the other parts, but the hard work is done. Underneath the heavy, custom bench top is the original steel chip pan. The bad: paint on tailstock does not match, you want will need a mounting plate for the included NEW Bison 3 jaw Chuck or modify the one in the draw… That’s about it! However, I will load on a truck or trailer at no charge with a forklift.
