Working lathe was all I read as being advertized And it works
Only thing you can blame the seller is that he did not pack it propperly perhaps
Then I guess it’s more about the definition of “working lathe”.
I would argue a “working lathe” would mean a machine that can do its job.
A small high precision lathe that has bad bearing can’t do it’s job sooooooooo I’d recon that’s not a “working lathe”.
