On the weekends I usually don't read the newspaper much. Saturday morning I picked up the paper and glanced at the tool section of the ads. 13x40 lathe for sale. Been looking for one for a while. I call the guy, drive 50 mile to see it and bought it on the spot.. then I had to figure out how to get it home.
It appears to be in great shape.The po bought it new and used it as a hobbyist in his garage. It has not been used as a production lathe in a business It is a china made Grizzly, but will suit our needs quite well. A comparable new one is over $5,000. He only wanted $800 Glad I was the first one there!!!
Gotta go to work ... Rick
