    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    That seems like a heck of a price for a fine lathe. And it has the duplicator that Larry keeps saying he'd need.

    It looks like a heck of a deal to me. I had a 36" duplicator on an old Blount lathe and made some good money with it. Hated to loose it but stuff happened.

    Go Larry go.... and you thought Jay was a friend, I would say he is a bad influence for a dedicated flatworker to have as a buddy.

    It also said it had an adaptor for spiraling which would be handy. Larry has plenty "roundtoits", he just needs to spend a couple of them.
