    Default For Sale Jet 1340 lathe

    I have a Jet 1340 gearhead , 220v, 1ph, lathe for sale. I bought it new about 3 years ago and it has only about 40 running hours. Picture is available if interested, asking $2700. Located in southern Michigan, pick up only, and I can help load on a trailer.

    Is the price to high or is this just the wrong forum?

    Nice looking lathe. I have an older version of it in my home shop. You might want to list any accessories that come with it.
    Good luck with the sale.

    The older Jets were made in Taiwan, I have a 30 year old one that gets regular use and is trouble free. Your's unfortunately is Chinese and doesn't have the best of reputations. I came in here to vouch for the quality of the Jet, on your's I can't because of where it was made.
    And yes your price is too high, home shop quality machine tools in this economy aren't worth 50% of new, even if only 3 years old. Your going to have to get south of $2000 before anyone is interested. No disrespect, just the facts. If a mod sees this listing it probably will get deleted, we don't take kindly to Chinese hobby machines in here.

    You haven't done the best effort to sell it.

    Model?

    Single or three phase?

    Spindle bore diameter?

    Accessories?

    What thread system(s)? Standard? Metric? Modular? Diametral?

    Does it require change gears (is it clumsy to thread metric)?

    At the least, what's the spindle bore, electrical needs, and model number?

    If you find the "Made In ..." tag, and it says Taiwain, you need to tell us about it, otherwise we assume China.

    I believe South Bend closed down and someone bought the patterns and name, where they are going to restart production, who knows.

    The used machinery market in general is just very slow right now, so don't get discouraged too quickly.

    People just aren't buying period.

    Not on eBay, but at live auctions they are buying about the same as ever... at least they were up until a month ago....I haven't paid attention to live auctions since mid June.

    I suppose to those who don't pay attention or are just flat out ignorant, it probably seems that way. FWIW, the new South Bend lathes are made in Taiwan.
