    I hate you (snicker, snicker). Around here no one, absolutely no one sells a or trades a lathe unless they want "new" price or is an absolute POS
    The optimist says the glass is half full, the pessimist says it's half empty. The paranoid in me says somebody put a hole in it.

    Remember pessimists are at heart opptomists. They know things can and will get worse.

    POS, words used by someone to belittle a piece of used machinery.

    NOW NOW< you will hurt someones feelings.

    Sometimes you run a car, lathe, horse, or motorcycle till you get all the good out of it. Is it used up? well.. you have to consider how much it will cost to repair to a usable condition. Sometimes it is worth more in parts. be a shame to bust up a "together" quality built but worn machine for a few worn parts.

    I saw a goverment bill once that wanted to not license all older vehicles. It said they did not meet pollution standards of the present day. I was trying to figure out how to bury a few old cars till that blowed over.

    My 1951 Leblond keeps on turning metal, it may not be all shiny and painted up like the Bridgeport cnc is, but it never has gave me a seconds trouble. Is it brand new, NO, does it work? Yes.

    Some people buy car's and motorcycles on the same principle, is it shiny? if not it must be a POS. Let someone rub a lil paint on it thou.. and the same people jump through thier bunghole.

    Words spoken here say you must rebuild a brand new Chi-Chong lathe to get acceptable results. WHY? can't you just rebuild a older cheaper quality machine and end up with a better machine?
