  • Tips on Examining a Logan 12"

    I'm going to take a look at a Logan 12" lathe tomorrow. The owner says that it a gear change type with a 36" bed. So far, the only additional components that it is known to have are a 3-jaw chuck and a dead center. He opined that it is of the 50's or 60's vintage.

    Aside from general inspection tips, are there any particular things to watch for on a lathe of this type? Any thoughts in this regard would be appreciated.

    Also, what might be an expected price range?

    Thanks

    Logan still supplies at least some parts - see http://www.loganact.com/

    For inspection tips on lathes or mills see the exceelent advice from Dave Ficken on the Meridian Machinery web site: http://www.mermac.com/

    Dave sells used machine tools and is one of the most honest individuals I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
