  • 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?

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