    It has to do with ebays rules, anything that is listed as "Used" must be 100% operational, if its not the buyer can cry foul and demand $$$ for repair, or return the machine, and ebay sides with...

    Sounds like you got a decent deal if both machines are running. What tool holders did you get for the lathe? If just a rocker you should learn to use it as every now and then it might be what you...

    This is the part where I don't understand why you got so upset, he said he was new, he said he had just purchased a lathe, and he asked for help, and he was in the SB forum. Instead of going off on...

    There is no way to replace 1 way (proper name is way, not rail), it is possible to swap out the whole bed, but even then it would have a S#, unless its been re-ground at some point in time. Clean it...

    I would think if the moderators have a problem with it, they can move or delete, anyone that is not a mod should just ignore it if it "bothers" you.
