I think I am being a bit hasty and unfair in my criticism, as the pictures are dark and don't show it in it's full state of perfection.Alistair

May sound a bit vain but I think I can fully appreciate it without seeing it in person...

I like the way the center set of legs is off the ground... and looks like it has been for quite a while.....

That red paint they used to preserve the ways is a classy touch also.............................................. ..................;)

It's only going to cost me slightly under $2K to ship to my location. Not sure how I can pass up that deal, but I guess I'll have to anyway. Besides, I don't have a dirt floor to put it on. Would hate to keep it in a strange environment.......;)

That's a old 18" Lehmann gear head lathe with a 11 foot bed, about 84" between centers. I rebuilt one just like this one, way back 35 years ago. Headstock sounded like a thrashing machine. Headstock has a bunch of very special gears in it that no gear cutter is available anywhere to cut them with! The one I had was given to me in pieces, rebuilt it, later in life sold it for only $500 later.

I tried sending a eBay message to this person to get more pictures and no reply. He sure dreaming big on the price! He better pay me $3000 to haul it off!

I know it's not a good deal because flylow didn't snap it up.

Under all the iron oxide preservative, I'm sure it's in first rate condition.

Finest regards,
