    The Juniors are good, better then the later 9s " In my awful opinion "

    They had bronze bearings! My first real machine at age 12!

    Go to your local craigslist website and search for "lathe" to look at how others sell them. That should give you a good idea!

    Put it on the for sale section here, I have not kept up on values, but they always bring good money in my area.

    Do photographs. CLEAN. Similar to selling a house. Abrasive-free waterless hand cleaner, NO WATER is a safe and easy way to remove oil and dirt. I use "Goop" brand and a shoe-polish dauber.

    Don't worry about a bit of rust. We know how to deal with that and not damage fine fits. Please do NOT sandpaper it nor go at it with steel wool or Scotchbrite abrasive pads.

    Remove debris, scraps of metal, etc.. Old paintbrush. Cheap "chip" brush pak from Big Box. Cuttings are sharp. Can cut you if bare-handed.

    Include related tooling.

    Hang poster board, paper or plastic dropcloth, tarp, or tablecloth as backdrop.

    Do not show it buried in, backdropped by, nor adjacent to the usual distracting "stuff". most especially if it had been neglected, gone trashy and dusty, declining years.

    One GOOD shot from each of several angles, not three the same angle from different distance.

    Use only the sharp ones, not poor focus.

    Post here for "draft if you can. Other South Bender's can guide you, may be interested themselves, or know someone who is.

    Be sure to put all the items that are with the machine in the photos right up front.

    I appreciate all this information, especially on how to clean it up. I had to store my fathers complete workshop plus wood. I will use your advice and clean it up and take pictures. Thanks again for your help

    John's catalog links will help you ascertain - and quickly - what goes with it and what are lawmower engine or tall clock parts - or "whatever".

    MOST "non-users" are better at grasping that a trashy look is not helpful to getting an item sold.

    We who USE machine tools are actually the worst offenders at showing them dirty and cluttered!

    I'm sure you will do fine!

    SB's - all eras - are popular for their ease of transport and ability to do a lot of decent work.. so long as the user is as patient as they are skilled.

    Or a great deal "more so"!

    Maybe some more real lathe users can help along, we need one more.
    I have been thinking an improve your own industrial photography thread! That could solve many problems!
