    I guess that depends if its a real Weipert (year of man.).
    Weipert died in the `70ties, was bought out by Vöst Alpine (Austrian Company) and machines then where sold under VÖST-WEIPERT.
    These are very good and reliable machines.

    But I have already seen new machines sold under the name Weipert which look like lathes made in far east - not in Europe......

    labman, you need to edit in a location in your profile ASAP or risk being banned. How you got approved in the first place without one is beyond me.

    Just picked up a nice Weipert WBE lathe. Any hope of getting a service manual? I contacted the new company in Germany but no luck there. Thanks
