WTB Metal Lathe - single phase (120V or 240V) for hobbyist

Post by DeudeMann » Tue Mar 30, 2021 12:11 pm

I am looking for an engine/metal lathe I can use in my personal hobby shop for small to medium TBD projects.
Some basic wants:
- Operational as-is, ready to work. I'm not looking for a restoration project.
- Something in the 8" x 20" range or larger. I do not need a 120" 480V three-phase monster please.
- Single phase power (120V or 240V OK) or comes with a power converter
- Manual is fine. DRO would be nice.
- Three jaw chuck
- Quick change tool post
- Some existing cutting tools would be useful (just getting started with lathe work)
- Around 2000 lbs max weight so I can move it on my end.
- Benchtop is OK though a table would be nice
- Single headstock (turret not needed)

I am located in the San Antonio, TX area and will travel within Texas for the right deal.
