    True I don't spend a lot of time here, usually just check in every couple of weeks. This particular forum is mostly 10ee stuff and I have never used one of them so I don't have much info to add.

    Not a lot of us have room for a lathe like yours.

    Does anyone have an email address for Brett by Portland? He hasn't posted on PM for five years and his business web page is defunct. If anyone knows how to contact him please PM me?

    Thanks!

    Iíve actually agreed to buy this lathe. Iím wondering the same thing and hope that itís in decent condition. I agree about the color scheme, pretty horrible.

    I hope that the lathe is in great shape. The Rivett 1020/1030 is a really nice lathe. If it's not in good shape, it's definitely a lathe worth restoring. Congrats on the new addition to your shop!! Are you going to have it shipped to you or are you going to make the drive to pick it up in person?

    Based on the final sale price of the 1020 in that auction that was linked earlier in the thread, I might have to retract my statement about the valuation of these Rivett lathes.

    Hoping itís in great condition myself. Iím in Texas and itís in California, so no, not picking it up! Seller is shipping it. Missed your statement about the value of these Rivett lathes. Seems hard to find much information on value. Which is why I worry I overpaid. Of course thatís really going to depend on the condition of the machine.

    I picked up my 10ee in Texas and brought her back to FL. California is certainly doable from Texas.

    Is the seller extending any kind of guarantee as to condition?

    Oh itís doable! I just donít want to make the drive. I think he has a 30 day return policy but I doubt Iíd return it unless there was something that made it worth nothing more than scrap. He did take videos for me showing it running, speed changing, and power feeds working.

    That's impressive that they are giving you a 30 day return policy. But then again, I haven't bought a machine over ebay so I'm not knowledgeable in that kind of thing.

    People always talk about the diamond that they found sitting under a cover of dust in the corner of someone's shop that the owner sold for pennies. I'm never that lucky guy. If someone is willing to pay 3k out the door for a 1020 that has been sitting out in the PNW rain, then a working, running 1020 will command a much higher price. Also, if it's the lathe you've always wanted and you're going to run it for years, then the cost of ownership doesn't change too much if you overpay a little. Did the lathe come with any accessories? Let us know how you like it.

    Iím never that lucky guy either. I must have missed the thread on the one that was out in the rain. Thought Iíd read all the 1020 threads here.

    Nope, no accessories other than the chuck thatís on it. Unfortunate but is what it is. Iíll post some pics and video once it arrives. Iím in no hurry to get it as my shop wonít be built for another 6 weeks or so. At the moment itíll sit in the garage waiting on the shop to be completed.

    The auction lathe uses 6R collets.

    Apparently, some of them had morse taper spindles. According to the drawings, there is an implication that the D1-4 models used MT spindles. However, I haven't actually read a report of someone saying they have a MT spindle though. Rivett experts please correct if I'm wrong.

    My manual shows the D1-4 spindle with a 5mt bore.
    The D1-4 has a spindle through hole of 1-3/8 versus the 1-1/4 through hole of the L0 spindle.

    Years back, I bought a lot of 5C collets that were stamped "Rivett" (in lieu of a manufacture's name). The only Rivett lathe that I've seen in person, a 1020S (s/n 332), had a Sjogren 5C collet chuck.

    Here's a link to a table listing the various collets used on Rivett lathes:

    Isn't 6R a collet that originated on the Hendy?
