    XXX, after fees and taxes?

    Though maybe it is not the same lathe, and it just ended around the same time. I sent you the link via PM, but you did not reply. I thought that lathe looked quite rough. I have seen a lot of shop auction Regals, online and in person. That was rough. The photos were also very limited. Just not many, and not of key areas.


    Edit: I think I know exactly and I have removed my 'guess' to not spoil the fun, though I'm not sure about guessing without photos, etc.

        A missing steady rest is certainly not a deal breaker.
        If one cannot find an original for a decent price, its not difficult to modify and adapt a different manufacturer's with similar size or capacity..

          We, or at least I, am waiting.......

          I assume you didn’t get it. If you did, don’t feel obligated to say.

              Ah well. Either missed a deal or a bullet. No guarantee the next bid would have took it either.

                a compound crash big enough to knock a corner off and leave the gib screw exposed is a good enough reason as any to walk away

                  I had a chance to bid on either of two 13x40 Harrison lathes at an auction. During the inspection phase, I noticed they both had identical horrific damage to the compounds so I asked about it.

                  When the shop owner told his employees he was closing down the business, one guy ran both spindles in reverse at top rpm and slammed the compound into the chuck.

                  I didn’t bid.
