I just purchased this Dean Smith & Grace 4AV lathe. I don't know much about it buy I know these are supposed to be some of the best lathes made. This one has a 12" Chuck and around 24 inches between centers. It's got a 10HP motor that was originally 480V 3-phase, but the seller had the motor rewired to 220V 3-phase. It comes with a 10HP VFD and some tooling. Everything is solid and smooth. The only issue with the lathe that I can find is that the power feed doesn't work so I'll have to figure that out. I would love to hear your opinions and any information you might have about this lathe. I only gave $1400 for it and to me it feels like a steal. I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and opinions. Thanks!

Thanks for posting the pics. Looks like a good buy. I had not seen that type of Dean before and it is very beefy but such a short bed. I hope you get it all running the way it should.
Good luck,
Michael
