    DeWalt Lathe

    I have a lead on an old DeWalt lathe. 12" I think. Extends to 36". Comes attached to a table and seems to be in good condition. I can't seem to find any info on this machine and I know NOTHING about lathes. I know it runs. The person selling it has know idea what to ask so i would need to come up with an offer.

    Any advice on this? Is this a good machine? What would you offer?

    Does it look like this?


    You wouldn't happen to have a picture of it, would you?

    Recently, one, missing a few parts and with no stand, got no takers on ebay at $100. Another, complete and with stand, had a reserve higher than $102, from an inexperienced seller. It also didn't sell.

    Seems like $100 is fair to both parties. seller gets it off his hands, and you'll have enough to cover your restoration costs...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I would say if no takers a $100 than the price was above the market price! Not at it. Thats standard Appraisal theory. When then don't sell they are priced to high.

    I don't know that lathe but it looks pretty light built to me. I would rather have a new (shudder) mini lathe with the cast iron beds myself. YMMV of course.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
