    Sounds about right, I know it's a weird one. I think they more or less copied the 10EE, some guy in the States buys up the steadies on Ebay UK when they appear and sells them as 10EE steadies in the US for X 3 what he paid

    I got the converter taper from #12 Jarno to #2 Morse with mine but I made another with #3 Morse in it

    D1-3 for the chuck and something like a short jarno taper in the headstock.

    Better pics and details here.

    The guy said it was either a D1-3 or D1-4 camlock.

    I too thought it was not a great paint job as the plates were left in an original condition which contrasts badly.
    Like Tim Leech I also have doubts that it will reach top speed with only 2hp.I knew a guy with a 2hp motor on one and he struggled to get 1500 rpm.

    Why is a CVA or 10EE so cheap when compared to a Myford Super 7, which while they are an excellent lathe are not in the 19EE class by a long shot. I don't know what they cost new in Britain but I have seen them for sale here for close to $13000.00.
    As John said it's a size thing.
    Most model engineers look at a CVA and think it's much too big for their shed/single garage*, so go for a smaller "trusted" make or an import.

    * It is too big for mine (I only have room for a stubby 20" b/c lathe)

    Two people can pick a Myford up and put it on a bench, as regards why the CVA is so cheap I can't answer that but I'm just grateful they are

    I wasn't being funny when I say that the Colchester will fetch double the money, some makes, Myford, Bridgeport, Colchester seem to have a popular mystique about them when there are far better machines that usually go cheaper.

    I'm really tempted to buy that, but it looks almost too clean, as if there's something to hide.
    It's been recently repainted with a brush. A freshly repainted machine tool is almost always a bad sign...
