I couldn't get it now or go look at it but this Craig's lisiting looks like a deal or a scam. http://atlanta.craigslist.org/tls/585390030.html

Dissolved bio-engineering department huh? They probably cloned the lathe, making it very inexpensive :D

The ablity to cut "Metrick" threads would be worth twice the price! Gary P. Hansen

That was a funny Paul, I about sprayed coffee all over the keyboard. I wasn’t thinking about it having some sort of genetic “metrik” disorder. All the collets and other stuff that came with it, Wow. I was hoping someone that lived closer that needed a lathe might look at it.
If it was a true offer ( and I had the cash ) I would jump on it like ants on a picnic.

Old age and memory sucks, I think I misread a 0 or two in that ad. Sorry, still liked the comments though. Heck it would probably need a good disinfecting anyway.
