    "
    With what?" is a great question, and I would suggest making it clear to whoever is making the eventual decision, that they carefully consider whether the machine being brought in as new, is not at...

    C'mon. We're talking a pure apples to apples comparison here!

    Model A's and flathead Harleys have at least as much relevance as old Drill Presses and Shapers, to the guys that are interested in...

    Funny enough, I know two guys that drive theirs, pretty much that much!

    Since the Pro guys don't seem to care, like as not, that means some hobby guy gets to put the time and effort in to saving...

    Pederson!

    I met a fella in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada, that had one (a mill) in his garage, with almost no hours on it.

    It was ... nice!

    What this adds... Almost nothing... but, anyway...

    Rhodium! Ask your wife/girlfriend/sig other what 'unexplanium' is worth! :)

    I have met Bob on a couple occasions. He travels a lot between Stateside and Canada, and I am pretty sure I saw him mention that he was going to be on the road soon.

    If he doesn't bite, Bob, can I post that on a mailing list for Emco Lathes?

    Because that is a bargoon!

    I'd be all over it, but sold my Super 11 last year. And bought a grinder that I expect...

    Knew two folks that had Tormach machines (a website advertiser, too!) and they were happy enough with them.

    If you understand the machine's limitations up front, it goes a long ways towards making...

    Per above.

    Separate the lathe tools from the Milling cutters, and group them in small lots and you will do fine on Epay!

    Put a hardwood top on it and clean up the paint job, maybe gold leaf the lettering on the cast logo, and it's likely worth at least whats asked, to them what think old industrial stuff makes great...

    Yeah, eventually.

    But nobody expects a new guy into it, to have ALL the tools already. It's a cumulative process (or, an accumulative one!), where tools are needed, and acquired along the path...

    Two parts.

    The main one being that they state they will make you a shank in any shape you desire, by special order. As long as the maximum dimension listed does not get exceeded.

    As a minor side note, I see that the lathes.co.uk site now has a page on the Wohlhaupter heads with a scan of a brochure in there that shows the shanks available, and some other useful data.

    We'll have to agree to disagree. :)

    Yeah, I see your point. The OP has not been clear (or I missed it!) as to whether he is setting up a commercial or personal machine, though.

    This is for a hobby yes?

    You have anything that you actually bought the lathe to work on with? Just about every guy I ever met, had at least one driving interest that pushed him to get a Lathe,...

    Yeah, pretty likely. Nothing without risks. Like I said. Illegal. But I do know one or two guys that have pulled off similar.

    A more realistic solution is to harden off the access to the stuff...
