Well, I'm no longer the proud owner of a Craftsman lathe. Thanks to Craig's List, I had a visit today from a real nice guy who has had an 8-hour turning class and is now eager to plunge into the Abyss. It should work out well as a starter lathe for him...it sure did for me. (And I know several others here and elsewhere have started with this model.) I also included a Longworth chuck, a donut chuck with a bunch of rings, a non-centering 4-jaw chuck, a shop-made steady rest, a couple spur centers, a basic live center, a spare of each type of belt, and a couple alder blanks to play with. I also pointed him in the direction of a few forums -- I know I picked up darned near everything I know from others on the Internet.
Icing on the cake...he also bought a little spalted hackberry vase to go with it.
End of the day, I think we both got good deals.
