    Default FS Hendey 12x5 EBM lathe (needs repair) $250

    I hastily picked up a Hendey 12” x 5’ EBM lathe off of a farm a while back to save it from being scrapped. A person who had worked on the farm was using it to make some metal parts for furniture as the story goes.

    It is definitely in need of repair. The major thing that prevents me from wanting to allocate the space for the repair is that the bed has a fair amount of wear that was hiding under the carriage (pictured). Additionally, it is missing a few extra parts, such as the foot brake rods and bracket and the auto length stop rods and brackets. The tailstock and cross and compound screws are pretty worn. The side door has been broken off a while ago too apparently.

    Anyways, basically, I don’t have much of a way to load it (engine hoist and prybars/rollers), unless you have a drop deck trailer or similar. If you can load it at my house/driveway, it is free $0.

    Otherwise, Oct. 8 it is going to live at my rigger’s place for a little while, though he can load it onto anything. I would like to pay him for his time, so if you pick it up at my rigger’s it would be about $250.

    I live in Blacksburg, VA. My rigger is in Dublin, VA.

    If no one thinks it is worth repair, or wants for parts, I guess we will just let the inevitable happen and scrap it.

    Thanks,
    David

    QT: [off of a farm a while back] .. a lathe that everything works can still do ok farm work.
    When something needs to be super close you can often run it (the out end) between centers...but I don't want it.

    That lathe looks a lot better than some of the piles of junk I see people waste their time with.

    How much way wear is scrap worthy- Does the carriage bind up?

    I think that's a much better deal than most small crap old lathes you see for sale.

    I'd expect that lathe to sell for around $2000 if someone spent an hour on it with some scotchbrite and hooked power to it.

    Most people wouldn't have the slightest clue the ways were worn nor would it matter for their use. Stating it's scrap basically makes it such.

    I mean, I just don’t want to overstate its condition. It is a project, and I just don’t have time for it, or the money to send the bed out. I doubt it would sell at my friend’s place just knowing what machines have been sitting there with no takers.
