South bend lathes for sale with videos ****SOLD****

Postby tommy1010 » Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:18 pm

I am offering my 4 (four) South Bend lathes for sale. There comes a time in ones life when he realizes he has too much stuff. These four machines have been in my possession for years. Although some were just mounted to benches they were kept in a heated garage as long as I had them. These machines are in awesome condition. The green 9" which can use a new paint job has wear on the ways for the tailstock. It was used mainly for a drill press in a plastic plant. Still cuts beautifully. The rest of the machines exhibit little wear. All have wheels to move around. Some have drawers for storage. All can be disassembled for easy transport. Once these are gone I have a Hendy conehead to move into the garage for rebuild. I am located in NE Pa minutes from the intersection of Intersate 80 and 81 zip 18225. PM me if interested.

Your links work well and the videos are fine too. Really great work on all of them, nice packages of tooling and good prices. I must also say your benches are well designed yet don't weigh a ton. These are perfect packages without the need to rebuild everything. Best to you and the satisfied owners.

Thanks spro. The amazing thing with these machines is that they are not wore out. They are in very nice shape. Should last a lifetime.
