Chucker not Toolroom Lathe

Never seen a HC with a solid carriage handwheel. I wonder what's up with that?

In addition, mine came with all original parts. I have about $775 total in mine and I know it runs nicely. BTW- mine even holds tolerances better than this one being offered for sale!
The folks on this forum know machines and will not even look twice at this item. See if Mike Kandu is interested.
Have you actually priced one of these things? They dont even bring bids at auction anymore, they are nice lathes but they are worth less than 1000 dollars in great shape, and that is fully tooled. I work with a machinery dealer and we have several that have sat for more than a decade, he is asking 1500 dollars and no one wants them.
Ya, wonderful machines and fun to run but limited functionality equals a pretty thin market
A friend just bought one a couple of months ago, fully tooled, chucks, collets and including the threading attachment with about a dozen or so guides. Paid less then 2k, delivered. He gets a fair amount of use from it doing short run production. Nice machine if you have a need.
I presume kpotter is thinking in terms of what he can best relate to...old dirty worn machine tools. In reality, a really nice clean late model Hardinge HC chucker with threading attachment and lots of tooling will still bring decent money at auctions... $5,000 in fact would not be out of the question.

Price is relative, I 'spose...I'm not one to judge, so I removed my comments.

Reminds me of a used machinery dealer I know. His thoughts of "excellent condition" are not the same as my thoughts of the term!!
