    Default WTB: 8x20ish inch lathe for home shop

    Good Day,

    I am looking for a lathe in the 8x20" ish range for home hobby shop. Must be either 110 or 220v as I don't have 3 phase power. It would be used for misc small parts, threading etc...

    I am located a couple hours west of Toronto Canada.

    Thanks,

    Instead of a 8x20 toy lathe,
    how about a 9x24 Toolroom Lathe?

    Don't limit yourself to 1ph 120.
    A cheap VFD fed 120 VAC, 1ph will run a 2-3hp 220 / 240 3ph system rather nicely!

    A Wade 8A went for around $1,250 recently on eBay.

    If I had even ONE fewer Monarch 10EE as well as the Cazeneuve HBX-360-BC, I wudda jumped on that one. The comparable Hardinge goes for a MULTIPLE of that price, and it isn't even worth the premium.

    A small Sheldon is another nice one. Holbrook? Smart & Brown?

    Why chase "white bread", when there are still a few top-of-the-food-chain legends to be had?

    They EARNED that level of respect. No excuses. No whining. No need to apologize for or skulk about over a poor choice of an Asian Lathe Shaped Object as a long-term investment.

    They still can make a body proud. Waste less of your time and materials, too.

    First comes good. THEN comes "fast".

    That Hendey, even in "derelict' condition, is like to be less worn out than the average "New" lathe shaped object out of China.

    That's a serious problem you have there. Why don't we move that Cazeneuve over to my place and free up some room.

    Meh. If it had actually been better than what he had, room would have been found!

    Always.

    If only for as long as it took to be rid of the 'lower' machine!

    Not impossible.

    But you might have to wait a while and deal with my Widow?

    My age, an HBX-360 with both the B & C options - trying to restore even the a partiual subset of the tracer - is kinda like owning an illustrated copy of the Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana.

    By the time you've worked up enough understanding to try even a fraction of what it suggests is possible... yer out of time, money, energy, raw materials, or all of the above..

    go grab Peter's lathe. He's a good guy and knows what he's doing - I'd have no worries buying from him.

    You WILL be so much happier with a real lathe!
