Speaking of myfords, whats your take on this one posted on Vancouver CL???? He is asking $10K and claiming its $18K new??? The highest price in Can dollars that I see on that website is about $10.5K new

Are these the real deal or China imports with the Myford name, I cannot imagine selling a lathe built with Myford quality from the past for $10k.

Those guys are off there nut. The Myford Super 7 Connoisseur lathe looks to be 18000 new from myford so 18000 for used seems a bad deal and the ml7 for 10000 is pure idiocy. I like myford and have owned two but those prices are nuts. I paid 900 and 750 for mine If they would have had gearbox's and all the kit I would have paid double that. Lathes are scarce here but even here those prices are crazy.
Oh btw here is Edmonton Alberta Canada

Tweelveteeth, your point is valid. I checked with Standard Modern a couple of months ago and they will sell me a new, Made in Canada, 13X40 lathe on a stand, for about $15,000.00. It will a) NOT be Asian, and b) more lathe than a Myford on its BEST day!
