Better late then never.
Beats finding an intact machine shop a developer bought. He has the excavator operator tear the roof off and then plucked each machine out with the bucket and thumb, placing them "gently" in the scrap dumpster.
Strange machine buying criteria.
Cheap lathe for it's size, but I don't want to drive so far to see it and maybe not buy.
Another lathe that's three times the price of the first machine, but half the distance.
You expect the seller(s) to assess the bed and spindle wear for a prospective buyer...
