Do you want it to get the contingency decals?

Depending upon where you live (because shipping one of these cast iron boat anchors is going to cost you) you can find a local machinery auction selling engine lathes on the cheap. This is because everyone is going to CNC and an engine lathe is well over the three years that the IRS allow your accelerated amortize depreciation of the cost. Even if you own a pick-up truck to transport it home you are going to need a fork lift to move it.

i got it up and running sunday. its 3 phase. i bought a VFD inverter off ebay to convert the single phase. it was about $150. i need to pick up some tooling now.

Dave, i had more stickers than paint. the pressure washer blew off a good deal of the old paint. cant have a nasty machine in my garage. Wink
