I wonder if he had the ways professionally sandblated? grin........

I wouldn't buy it. Sloppy work. He didn't bother touching it up after he moved the carriage.

What's unbelievable is the number of people who will probably bid on that pos.:D

I don't think it's paint. It's just a protective coating of the new formula Vactra II. I read about it here on April 1st I think.

I love the statement: motor is 3 phase easily changed to 110!

Wow! That thing is listed again? :eek:

And I thought my lathe restoration was less than perfect. :rolleyes:

Wow, great paint job! Got paint on pretty much every surface except, the nameplate, part of the ways, and the inside of the chuck. Check out the shear. Same thing. Maybe someone needs to limit this guy's access to spraypaint. The machines would probably bring more if the rust was showing, at least you would know what there was to work with.

I hope he painted the belt on both side and the inside of the spindle and tailstock bore.

I see he missed a spot.

Well............he's certainly correct. All one has to do is scrap the 3 phase motor and put on a 110 single phase.......LOL

I'd give him $50 for it tops,I would need the other $150 for stripper to get all the goo off it.Perfectly good woodworking pattern lathe ruined by a crappy clean and paint job.Left nasty and natural it would have fetched $600-700 in the right crowd.

Look again...he changed the photo ! The rascal apparently got some correspondance telling him what a doofus he was and he stripped and scraped the paint off the belt, pully and ways.

He also moved it -- no more overspray on the concrete around the legs.

I hope somebody got a copy of the original!

Yep he did do some zip stripin' on the ways... but I'm betting he just rolled the spindle cone and thus the belt. If you looked at the pulley cones you can still see the blue paint on the back of it. Also the tail stock chuck was twisted as well. A real Gomer... Surprise Surprise. :eek:
