This is my Clausing 5449 that I have owned for many years. It has a 1 ½ HP motor that uses a vari-drive to the spindle. It comes with a 3 jaw chuck, a 4 jaw chuck, and a 5C collet system. Also a flat plate and a dog plate. I have an Armstrong (Aloris style) tool post with a bunch of tool holders. I also have the old style lantern tool post. I will include lots of cutting tools.

The motor is 3 phase but I will include a VFD drive so you only need 240 volts single phase to run this lathe. This is a clutch lathe. With the lever you can start and stop the spindle rapidly without stopping the motor. A great feature. I have the manuals for the Clausing lathe and the Sony DRO.

The lathe has a Sony magnescale DRO with 0.0001” resolution on the cross slide. The sadle resolution is 0.001”

You can come and see it run.

* Clausing 5449 lathe 12” swing with 36” between centers, L00 spindle taper.
* Sony Magnescale DRO.
* Armstrong (Aloris style) toolpost with 8 tool holders.
* 11” flat plate
* 4 jaw chuck 10”
* 3 jaw chuck 6 ½”
* 10” fixture plate
* Dog plate.
* 5C collet closer and nose piece.
* Lantern tool post.
* Morse taper centers #3.

Asking $2,500.

When I put my lathe up on Craig's list I got this response almost immediately:

-------------------------------------------------------------
I'd like to buy it. I can meet you anywhere between here and downtown, no problem. I am happy to meet you tomorrow. I'm free any time tomorrow so just let me know when you want to arrange to come. Let me know if you have either way. I can pick it up today or Tomorrow with Full CASH. Let me know I'll give you my email please contact me... [email protected]
-------------------------------------------------------------

Obviously some sort of scam but what is the scam? I don't understand.

I responded with "Send my your phone number and we can set up a meeting".
Oddly, I have not heard back from them. Perhaps they need time to collect
up the CASH! ;-)

If you reply to the email address provided they typically reply with an email with a malware attachment that they try to get you to open. Since it is a reply to your email, spam filters let it through.

That's a nice package for the price.

We had a similar one, more tooling but no DRO, same price.

People kept telling me "You're asking too much".

A forum member came down, ran it through its paces, and said "I'm not even going to argue the price. Will you take $200 for a deposit?".

That looks like a very nice lathe. If you were down here in Texas a homeshop gunsmith would jump on it at 4K or more.

I don't suppose anyone would have even a ballpark number on what it would cost to get this moved from New Hampshire to Texas? Are we talking $500, $1500, or...? Does anyone have any kind of idea? I am new to machining, so is there a rule of thumb when it comes to transport cost ($x per pound per mile) or something similar?

A few years ago my friend shipped a car from Houston to New York for $800. Seems like a reasonable eyeball number

Cars don't need to be palletized and crated with additional accessories. They also don't need to travel in an enclosed trailer and moved with a forklift. This is why they are in a different freight class than machine tools when arranging for LTL shipping. I'd expect the shipping to be more than $800 once you have it palletized and crated. Of course this depends on if you are picking it up at a distribution center, dropped at a commercial address with a loading dock or delivered to a residential address.

You can get freight quotes from a number of online services such as uship, goship or freightquote.
