  • Does anyone want a Lathemaster 8x14 lathe + some tooling? Tampa, FL area.

    This offer is for any regular member on here that lives nearby for pickup. With the unexpected 10EE, I do not need a third lathe in my tiny workshop.
    Bad news is that I sold the change gears to some one else as I was going to convert it to CNC. The good news is that I'll give you the ballscrews I purchased for it if you want to do your own CNC conversion.
    I am not going to sell it locally here, too many tire kickers to waste my time. Rather one of you make use of it. I might even give you some other tools, I need to clean out stuff.

          He's been a member since 2016, it took me a long time before I felt comfortable posting. Stu

              Pretty nice gesture, I think we can all learn from this!

                I hope he's dirt poor as he will appreciate it and take care of it, I would hate to see it go to someone who's just an opportunist and using it as a means to just turn around and make a buck, in fact it would have been one of my initial demands --- that is - if I wasn't dirt poor and actually had nice stuff like that to give away lol

                  I've been dirt poor for 95% of my working life and shop-less. For once I am in a situation where I get more enjoyment helping others than I do making some money back. Right now at least, money is good, and I can do this. May not be the case forever, being that aviation is what it is.

                    Seems to be some question whether i should even have asked or whether im deserving.
                    I cant answer either question. Others will have to determine those answers.
                    As noted i've been a member for quite awhile on this and other sites, read almost daily but rarely post, as already noted. One of the reasons i initially responded by pm.

                    I can honestly say im just starting out in machining, have a 1941 pre ww2 hendey and a 80's or earlyly 90's summit b'port clone, both of which have been painstakingly rebuilt and had / have no intention or thought of resell of this lathe.

                    Being on the move for 26+ years with uscg meant no excess weight for military moves, so no shop.

                    While i would really like to have this lathe it may be a better idea to just pass and let someone else take advantage of your kind offer. I will leave that decision with originator.
                    Thank you

                      Wildcat, thank you for your service, the lathe is yours if you want it. I just didn't know who you were due to the low post count.
                      If you're just starting out, do you need a 4x6 bandsaw? It isn't perfect but does cut.

                        Or location. Surprised someone didnt ding you on that one. They do it often here. I dont. Sounds like it will make a nice addition to your shop., in Washington State LOL Kidding, JR

                          Funny you mention that. I asked about RB211's location back when he was having so much trouble with his first PM lathe and lamented the lack of good American iron in his area. It was frustrating to read that complaint without a location - how can I argue the point without a location? After many pages of thread the state was finally posted.

                          That was quite a while back. It is a very good thing I was able to rub two brain cells together and remember, so was able to forward the 10ee auction with an admonishment that he "find a way!" to squeeze it in, because it would probably go cheap and it looked really good. It was also pretty amazing that he wasn't scheduled to work.

                          But yes, putting your location in your profile can be key to getting very special treats. This isn't the first time I've seen a really special machine come up for sale and wondered what regular HSM contributor in the area could benefit. This round dial machine looks like it could be a really exceptional example.
