I was just on the auction site and notice a couple of very nice lathes that are available on the eastern side of the US. One is a Woodfast bowl lathe w/ 20" swing, tons of accessories with no reserve! The other is a general with a starting bid of $250!!
I'm in the midwest otherwise I think I would be all over the Woodfast, starting bid is $45 and as mentioned no reserve! I'll be watching it to see how high it goes.
BTW I have no connection with these auctions, just wanted to give a heads up to members.
