    Big old lathe in MN

    I'm heading to MN this weekend so I was looking at the Minn. craiglist and stumbled upon this....looks like quite a steal! Wish I had the $$ and a way to get it home.

    Interesting. For real turning, I'm sure it would need a lot more than the 1/2 hp motor on it now.

    Very cool. I agree with Frank that it could use a bigger motor (unless you were just turning very long pens), but it looks like a pretty substantial hunk of old iron.
