    20 minutes away from me...and I would like it...small enough for my crippled ass to maybe even use it.

    I will wait for other members to give a value so as not to appear to be trying to unfairly leverage a deal.

    You are probably in a good position to define an offer since the pricing is relative to the area.

    yes, BUT would prefer the OP had an informed estimate of value before I would make an offer.

    usually a consensus of fair average can be reached.

    I suggest you two just work it out to a price you can both walk away happy with. I feel like this sort of equipment, especially when sold locally is much more a "well, what will ya' take for it?" sort of arrangement rather than hard numbers.

    $500 South Bend heavy 9 for sale (it's deja vu all over again)

    $700 1939 South Bend Heavy 9 Restoration

    $2000 FS: South Bend Heavy 9 (this was in excellent condition with a ton of tooling)



    Those are all I could come up with.
    Edit: yep, pretty sure that's it without doing some extensive searching.

    I'm of the opinion that any running SB lathe is worth $1,000 if the ways aren't shot. Then either add value for accessories, or deduct if anything major is missing. I see a drive plate, spindle adapter, some tool holders, the 4-jaw, etc, but I don't see a thread dial. Using that formula I come up with roughly $1,100.

    Another way of judging value is the part out value. I don't know the market for a heavy 9, but if it were a 10 the part out value would be around $1,300 minus the associated selling fees, time, etc, would still put you back around $1,100.

    I hesitate to put a value on something I'm not buying. However, provided it's in decent condition and location doesn't affect value excessively $1000 is not a bad starting point. Seems to have a reasonable amount of tooling though i did not see a taper attachment.

    I sold a heavy 9 a few years back, very well tooled. (small spindle)
    I think I got around $1200.
    One with little tooling would be well below that for me.

    REally excellent condition, delivered to my driveway, AND he brought a good lift to help take it off the truck. 2K was an eminently fair price.
    Also this was an underneath drive motor version, a definite plus.

    You mean this machine wasn’t running for $2K?! Surely you mean he just didn’t have the time to get it set up.

    I’d also like to see some more current pics of it.

    I don't see a steady, I would guess they're probably non-obtanium or would command a hefty price tag if one could be found. For me, it would be a deal-killer as I do a lot of work in the steady but not everyone needs it.

    It's basically mothballed in my garage - Ive fitted a one hp three phase motor, and a VFD. Runs great
    and this will be the *last* machine I ever get rid of!

    And this machine did come with the correct steady rest. Only other tweaks were two brass oiler hole plugs (belt lever and QC top lever), and
    a new cross-slide gib screw,as the original had the screw slot a bit boogered.
