    Hello Admin5
    Where do you draw the line here? Could you be more specific?
    Say for a lathe:
    HP
    Swing, bed length or distance between centres
    Say for a mill:
    HP
    Table size

    Actually I don't really draw the line, as there are gray areas in this. For most, like the 9 inch Chinese lathes, it's obvious. But once you get into 14 inch lathes for example it depends on a number of factors.

    As a rough guide I'd say any lathe or mill that cost less than $4,000 new today is probably something that would not be allowed here. If in doubt, post the ad with minimal copy and see if it gets deleted after 48 hours. If not, repost with more elaborate description and pix if you want.

    Is Craftsman Contractor Series included in your list for wood working machinery?
