The cosmetics look quite nice, especially for the vintage; the price is quite steep: $9,900.

10K? pass the cool aid..

There's two Myford lathes (ML10) up for bid in our neighborhood (Seattle CL) that are hoping to bring dream prices. Neither has a gear box, but one is asking $1700 and the other is asking $2300. Both look like near-new condition. You can get new Chinese iron for those prices with every feature in the book including a manufacturer that isn't an PITA.

Then there's this Emco 7 for "only" $2700; this in not the V way 10 ... quite a tiny lathe.

I ran that one past my wife last week who observed the bed is long enough to sleep in :)

Pining for a new Atlas machine with Zamak gears? Wishing isn't going to bring back affordable US made HSM lathes with or without Zamak, and 40 year old machines that are not clapped out are becoming rare thanks to the value of scrap iron. This is a tiresome debate with an inevitable end game. Chinese made machines are here to stay and the quality issue is not enough to stop them from being sold all over the world. Time to move on.
