hapfo lathe

Well I would but I need to have something I can do in my retirement. I'm good at turning and it would be easy to turn out turnings( no pun intended ) I would be doing them locally anywey. So as you can see it's pritty hard to find a used lathe at a small price. I keep bugging my boss to sell me theirs but he says "art,that lathe is not for sale"I'll try to isert a picture of their lathe,mind you,they only paid 1200 for it ----ART

Well the whole idea is for me to get a little business going turning what ever comes along. I'm very good at turning and a copy lathe would just make things go alot faster and very consistant. you mean the lathe you have is your bread winner. boy its hard to find a good used one. Everyone wants to sell you eather a shopsmith or a chraftsman! I'm beginning to think thats all thats out there. Thanks--ART

Hapfo

I am new to this site so I'm not sure what the rules are if I brake any rules please forgive

I have been a woodturner for 30 years--what I have learned about copy lathes, Hapfo very best lathe I have ever used have had two a 5000 and an 8000. I would highly recommend any Hapfo Lathe. The person you want to talk to about Hapfo is Tom Fantaccione 732-349-8006 He knows all the Hapfo's and is in contact with the Hafpo Co. He also knows who is selling a lathe in the US. Probably Canada too. He has a good sized custom turning shop in NJ and has a CNC machine along with many smaller Hapfo.

My advise, I have owned a MiniMax --do not buy it is very limited and operates poorly, Vega Copy I rank the same as MIniMax.

Cost--used are very cheap right now. I bought two new Hapfo's expensive "yes" but it paid for itself from the day it arrived. Hapfo has produced good money I ended up just turning and stayed busy with custom turning.

I strongly urge you to edit your post, removing all telephone numbers and email addresses.

It's nothing to do with "rules" -- it's simply to protect you and others from getting pestered by cranks and/or crooks who find your contact details on the web.

Please visit my website, Fruit of the Lathe

If you already own a lathe why not buy a duplicator for that lathe. I've been using the Vega duplicator and it works quite well.
