    Interesting item, an old turret lathe(I guess) with the turret on a horizontal axis. I dont think WD-40 is going to bring that one back! Below is the URL to go straight to the item. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3804696446

      To quote the ebay ad, this is heavy man. And to think some idiot out there might actually bid on this. Not worth the price of the gas to move the damn thing
      Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

          The ad says "JUST BEEN DUG OUT OF NEIGHBOURS SHED" I think it should say just dug out from under neighbors shed

            I was thinking they salvaged it from a ship wreck.

              They were being polite, the correct term should be privy.

                  Actually although we have pictures to see here, sometimes people bid(which I have never been able to understand to this day) without any photographic evidence.
                  Imagine you were relying on description alone. Thinking "Oh well just a motor and a little dab of the old WD eh" "just what I need" etc etc etc seems like he could be in trouble. Alistair

                    That's just a piece of iron ore.

                        Oh, come on, just dunk it in a tub with a battery charger and it'll clean right up! Then some scotch-brite and a can of paint and you've got a newly rebuilt lathe!

                          Don't laugh.
                          The bidder is 30 to 40 miles away.
                          This thing weighs about 3/4 of a ton and heavy cast is آ£70 a ton and rising.
                          For all you know Luton could be on a sheduled run.

                            John I am surprised a man of your ingenuity could not make this into something useful say like a submarine or an automated toilet roll holder Alistair ps any other ideas guys

                              Turn it into a fountain. I don't think getting it wet would diminish it's value....
