    Good luck to you in selling it for that price, but you don't have a snowball's chance in hell at that price. You might sell it for #7500, but $7,000 is more realistic.

    agree, it's not "collectable"....there are about a zillion 10K's out there and any of them can be rebuilt to better than new...full Monty professional rebuild run around 4Kish....so with accessories plus original purchase price of machine before rebuild, puts the 7-8k about right.

    Doesn't hurt to try though.

    Can't blame the guy for trying. Everyone was drooling all over it, kind of like a "heavy petting" session with your GF, then she says NOPE!

    Not sure if I created the link properly but post #3 has a guy that bought a 1978 10k in 2015 for $10,000 with no accessories.

    Keep us updated what it sells for. I will fault no person for starting high, and I think you can get $10,000 or close. There's a lot of money on the west coast and 10 grand isn't a lot for some people. You'll probably need more exposure than CL and here though.

    How full of shit are you? I've seen this under different names here on PM. Posted on CL Seattle. Same BS story. How stupid do you think we are? For starters, original machines do not have screwed on data plates lol. Ugh.

    Yeap, I have a virtually identical model and year. The seller has been straightforward it seems, regardless if someone doesn't agree with price. People should think before spewing hostilities.

    These false accusations remind me of a crazy ex-girlfriend I had, that needed to be kicked to the curb. Your anger and misguided 'expertise' comes from being a sad owner of a 3.5" Sherline lathe. lol

    And "He already has a heavy 10 of older vintage in like new condition as well, so he has no need for this lathe" Then in your CL positing you specifically say "He bought this lathe because it made him happy just to look at it. He never ever turned on the motor, because he didn't even take the time to figure out how it worked". What in the world????????????????? Anyone????????? Beulller????????????? Both linked here unless you delete them. Don't bother. I have screenshots. Seriously are you delusional? You want to attack me? I'm just trying to keep unsuspecting people from being taken by you.

    Dear owner of a Sherline Lathe,
    Please take your medication as your doctor has instructed. A simple self-test you can take is "what is 2 + 2?" If you come up with 'banana' or 'cupcake', you know you need to take at least a double dose of your pills. FYI - the answer is 4. With that said, you should slow down, take a deep breath, count to 10 - no - for your case I would say count to 1,000 and read the posts CAREFULLY, and you will have all your answers. I would have reported your post if there was a place to do it on this forum, and the moderators PM mailbox is full. If anyone knows how to report this yahoo and his lies let me know.

    Cheers !

    It is strange that your bed numbers are 40611. My 10K was made in Dec of 1988, numbers 40371. Yours was before mine but the numbers are higher?

    Right after "Like this post" is a warning triangle. It's the "report post" button.

    Yes, it is the same lathe - a friend was asking about it for me. He was thinking about buying it until he discovered it was too nice (which equaled too expensive)

    I would like to buy it. I'm out of Eugene OR and have tried to reach you through Craigslist with no luck. Let me know if it is still for sale. Thanks. A beautiful piece.
