Had one with a tailstock & chuck on a cabinet but just bought this at auction http://auctions.btmindustrial.com/Hardinge-DV-59-Lathe_i23954958
BTW no loading charge as they added it when it was almost over.Also the Miler DeltaWeld 450 Welder for $150 & a 30"x20" blast cabinet for $20 made locally.

Those can be a good second op machine or even first op for the right part. Old tech, but still useful and valuable in the right situation.

Good price on the Hardinge. Not the newer push button variable speed. Still a good machine, the dovetail bed machines are a major step up from the old split bed type.

I sold the newer style with tons of tooling for $6K ten years ago.

Between the 2 I have most all configurations so it should work out. Wish it had a lead screw.
