Sorry .. just had to post this CL ad for anybody near CT .. this is a
relabeled Emco V13 for 2400 bucks and it looks very nice.

Its not a V13.. although it is green.

I have a Maximat v13... and that lathe looks nothing like my v13 below.


Its a 16" Voest..probably a DA210 ,225...Quite a bit bigger than a v13.......though Still very desirable and a very nice lathe at that price.

That is a lot of machine for $2500.

Sure is! nice for someone close by.... Freight and rigging would add $2k+ to here! Even then.. still a decent price for Seattle.

looks like it is missing the chip pan

hmm ... yea. I was just quoting the UK lathe database site.

Manufactured in Linz-Donau, Austria by the Vöest Company (now part of the vast Vöest-Alpine Group) the DA Series of lathes were, apart from a re-badged Emco V13 sold as the DA160

here's the link

And IF it is .. it would be a great find ... hidden in a lousy worded ad

I think its a re sprayed machine.

lots of grey primer showing.

Would have been nice to see the original condition

It's OK Eric, he can have mine, I don't use it....................

That's an unusual drive system,V-belts between the HS spindle and six speed motor/gearbox.

That's how my Polamco TUM35 is set up. The lower gearbox is bigger than found in many cars! In fact.. much of that lathe looks similar; maybe not surprising, IIRC... Voest designed the lathe for Polamco.
