    I know what is said here, all I can go by is my experience with both. I had a 1-3/4hp motor on the A---, never stripped any gears, its still running with a new owner at my Tx shop today. If you could combine the V-ways and steel gears of the Logan with the QCGB of the A---, it would be a better machine than either. Change gears SUCK!

    That's five pictures PER POST so you have lots of room. Just don't overdo it.

    I'm not talking about the tail drill chuck but about a chuck for the head stock...like a 3 jaw or a 4 jaw.

    There is a Chuck handle laying on the lathe bench so there may be a 3 or 4 jaw floating around the shop.

    BKylee, if your not sure about the tooling it may be worth your while to get a friend who knows what to look for help round up extra tooling.

    bit of elbow grease, some oil and a tidy up will easily net you a couple hundred on top of whatever you're asking. For PA, a change gear lathe and looking like a dirty half dismantled project, $500 should be easy. Cleaned up, with all the equipment that goes with it and with a potential buyer being able to run it, $800 should be easy.

    Take qty (5) minutes, and spread all the tooling and chucks neatly out on a piece of plywood.

    You'll get more out of this, if you put more into it.

    Agree, the vise on top of the hot water heater suggests there may be lathe stuff all about the shop. Just an oil rag wipe down would be a huge asset.

    This lathe belonged to my father who passed away so I will get everything that goes with it cleaned up and in one spot.

    Take pictures of all the tooling on the shelf below the lathe. I see part of a box of tooling in one picture. It looks like the lathe has a collet chuck so I’m guessing it also has both a 3 jaw and 4 jaw chucks. If that lathe has some decent tooling including chucks and collets plus a decent quick change tool holder... I’m guessing you can get @ 800.00 for it. Maybe more. It really depends on the tooling. Heck, if you’ve got some brand new Bison or Buck chucks, then maybe you’d get over 1200 for everything. Maybe more, but you’re in Pennsylvania and there’s no big shortage of machines in your neighborhood. In my neighborhood, a well tooled Logan with top notch accessories goes for 1500.00 plus all day long. Also, you’re going to need to find all the change gears.
    If you don’t have change gears, collets and chucks... you’ve got about 650 tops in my opinion.

    That's actually a milling attachment sitting on the hot water heater.
