    Pretty neat and the most substantial looking wood lathe I've seen.

    Scroll down to Lot 5011. Video of it turning also included. Lots and lots of pictures.

    In addition to the lathe there is an astounding amount of tooling that goes with it, all sorts of clearly custom made stuff. I took a look at the late owners website to see what sort of work he did with it and why he needed that set-up, well worth it;

    I'd say that if one wanted to do that type and scale of work, 10k for the lathe and tools was a bargain. Obviously someone else thought so...

    Pics show a Baldor motor and an H.S.V. (hydrostatic speed variator) from T.B. Woods and Sons company out of Michigan.
