    Oneway Lathe

    Don't know much about Lathe Prices or quality but this has one serious Steady-Rest and a healthy price tag!

    Must be a typo. A new 2436 is about $6500 or thereabouts so they must have added an extra digit on the beginning. I mean there are a bunch of sweet accessories but $10k worth? Don't think so. At $6k it's probably not to far off with all the extras.

    I agree...that is way high IMHO. There is probably over $2000 in accessories, but not $10k.

    I have no doubt that guy spent $10,000 or more on all the accessories. He's got a LOT of high-end stuff. But just off the top of my head I'd say he's trying to recoup nearly all of his entire investment, which is not likely to happen.

    I also noticed he has nearly every accessory you can get for a lathe. Can't help but wonder if he was/is a toolaholic who felt compelled to buy every tool out there, regardless of whether he needed it. It also looks like he decided that pen turning wasn't for him.

    That price has to be a typo. Or a Craigslist come-on.

    I really don't think it's a typo. It's just someone who doesn't understand the retail value of used high-end tools. The steady rest and hollowing rig in the first photo alone probably cost more than a lot of lathes. There's over $1000 worth of chucks and jaws. He has 24 live and steb centers. They probably cost him $750 - $1000 new. Three Oneway spindle steadies at $130 each. Ten Oneway Versa-mount faceplates at $30 each. A full Wolverine sharpening system (with three Vari-Grind jigs and every other available accessory). Plus the belt sander sharpening rig.

    And that's just skimming the surface of 6 of the 24 photos. Actually, if you add it all up, the $16K price tag might not be that far out of line.

    There are some individual photos that have $2000 worth of accessories in them.

    Yah, perhaps... I started adding up the pieces but gave up after about 10 minutes.. there is a LOT of stuff there. There seems to perhaps have been a fair bit of "this isn't working so throw more tools at it" based on his chisel selection...

    Some of it doesn't entirely make sense to me either, I could see one spindle steady.. but three for a lathe that size? I dunno, I suppose there is something you could turn that could use them all.. but I've gone fairly thin at ~35" (with the tail stock hanging off a smidge ) without even one.. it just seems like it would be terribly crowded.

    I agree, Ryan. Total toolaholic. Who needs 10 Versa-mount faceplates? (One is good, so ten must be better!) The chisels and gouges looks like a case of "Ooh! There's a new brand that everybody on the forums likes. I need the full set!"

    Alright, alright...I'll admit there are a ton of accessories there.

    He'd make out better selling everything separately. With as clean as the lathe and area around it is...makes you wonder it if ever got used too.
