    If I were you I would just check completed sales on E-bay and go from there. On the other hand as a rule of thumb, inspection equipment in pristine shape will go for about 50% of new retail on...

    What part of he squandered $200k of other people's money without completing one machine do you not understand? He also didn't treat the investor's money with respect.

    I think most of them are just a CNC retro fit package slapped on something like a Hardinge HC if my memory serves me correctly.

    People are going to want to know price as Digger said. Considering many have tried to fix it and failed it better be close to haul away for free.

    Not all Jets are poorly made. From what I gather they are all made in low end mainland China shops these days. I have a 14 x 30 Jet branded manual lathe manufactured in Taiwan in 1975. I have had it...

    I sold a smaller 3 position one on E-bay for $250 a couple years ago. I would think yours could bring $500 there for that size, but you will have to part with almost 15% between E-bay and Paypal fees.
