Cleaning out the wood shop, trying to sell some things to buy a new miter saw and table saw. My grandpa bought this lathe a long time ago, it was built in Ontario. The thing is solid, weighs as much as a tank. It works, and it's in good shape. I tried to find one for sale online similar to this one but with no luck so I figured I'd join a forum and see what you guys think. Attached some pictures of the lathe. I don't know much about it, it runs off 110.
Never heard of the brand, so cant throw in much there. General thoughts though, are that its in pretty good condition, it looks like its solid cast iron and weight a ton, which is good; more weight means less vibration on imbalanced loads. The motor seems eh, 1hp (i think, cant quite make out the nameplate but it fits the voltage), probably enough but most wood lathes ive seen that size are 2-3hp. Speed control id imagine is a wide enough range, looking at the stepped pulley and assuming theres a jackshaft somewhere in the mechanism. A big negative for me is the flat belt, im sure it drives the work fine, but flat belts are pretty well obsolete and somewhat hard to find.
As far as prices goes, i dunno. Id list in at the $500 range, though im probably lowballing that
