    These show pretty regular on ebay. IIRC they originally made in Southern California for use in insrutment shops associated with the aircraft industry
    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

        I have seen them on ebay before, but staggered at the money they make. Watch this and you will get a shock at the final price. Alistair

            It's cute! About half the size of my Unimat.

              I don't think I've seen a lathe listing where it was easier for the photographer to get a front view by picking up the lathe and resting it on it's back side.

                That's too cool. I want one just as a cutiosity, not to use. That would look great on my desk at the office.

                    I finaly caught a brass ring! Paid $15.00 for my ManSon lathe about 1972 at a yard sale. The seller had used it for H-O RR wheel`s, axel`s & such. Complete xcept for allen wrench,t`stock c`tr but have head stock drive for lathe dogs. Center may be i one of the kennedy kits.
