Agree there pretty versatile but would rather have one that would swing around 20 inches to do larger parts and flywheels and such

I had one similar, but just 36" working bed.  Din't even take it off the pallet when I stumbled on a heavy duty South Bend 10x42 decked out with tooling on a large HEAVY steel table.  Sold the Atlas.  Still wish I had at least a 12" swing so I could turn down brake drums & discs.

Mine is 13" and I've used it all at times. Seems like the swing and spindle bore are always the limiting factor.  :wallbanging:

Had one like it except a bit newer,they good for small things and you can still get some parts for them I don't remember where thou.

Offer $200 for it,There are some things you would need for it that arent in the pictures such as change gears (pita to change) no tool holder (the cutting tool don't get mounted in the tool post) and a 4 jaw chuck is needed for centering odd shaped  parts and a face plate with drive dogs is nice to have.

The one I had liked to eat the split nut cus there isn't a clutch for your power feed.And they don't have a back gear for slow turning.

There are an ok hobby lathe but I was lucky and found a 12 inch Sound Bend with a ton of tooling for $450 and sold the altas for $300 and it is a much heaver machine that does anything I throw at it.

The lathe was know as the king of the machine shop---Get a good heavy one,you won't regret it.

What does in good condition except neglected mean?

That could describe me, the first time I was married
