I got my lathe!!

I met a local gentleman here in Riverside. He sold me a 48" southbend lathe for $550 (old but in good shape) which I am picking up today. and he's got several more for sale (used and rebuilt). I know alot of folks drewell over the thought of having thier own lathe in their own shop. email me for his phone number. And believe me im not making a penny off of this. But if I can help someone else, Im more that glad to assist.

Scott

Speed, If I had to part with all my tools my lathe and mill would be the last to go. With a decent lathe and mill the sky is the limit

I have a small 12x24 lathe and a small mill. You can make most anything for a car you need with it. The tooling for the mill is what cost so much.

Yup....the machines are resonable....but the tooling will kill ya lol. Made a lot of stuff on my lathe and mill from milling heads to machining a set of Hummer wheels to fit my 3/4 ton Dodge pickup.

I always keep my eyes open for mill and lathe tooling at the swap meets and flea markets. There is a guy who has been going for years to the car shows who sells used machine tooling, measuring equipment, etc.
He gets some business from me every time..

Also, machine shop auctions are a good place to pick that kind of stuff up for pennies on the dollar.

Later, mikey

Have you ever seen a Super Spacer or an Indexing Head? Would sure like to find one of those at a flea market. 8 or 10" would work

Order a large catalog from a company from Travers. I got one in the mail the other day and tooling is real reasonable even for a DIY'er. Believe me, I know what tooling cost. I order it all of the time as I am a toolmaker / modelmaker (prototypes) and some stuff is ridiculous. Even on E-bay most thing their stuff is gold.
