First post of a first turning machine
Welcome Atkins,Sorry to be the bearer of bad news,but what you have there is junk.Sorry ,but yes its not worth what you pd for shipping.That being said,is there is a possibility that you can return it?then do so ASAP.You will loose your shipping charge,but maybe you can get some of your money back.I have a simular lathe that I picked up with some other tools last year,but mine is a single tube mach that is made by Ohio Forge.It is setup an ready to run.not a great lathe ,but it does run and would be a good beginner lathe.I don't know where you are located,but if your interested you can email me and maybe we can make a deal if your not to far away.I have two faceplates with mine,plus a new Nova chuck,plus some cheaper tools.All you have to do is set it on a bench an start turning.I was gonna list it this weekend on a few forums I'm on.I want 100.00 for it.I just pd 50.00 for the chuck and 20 for one of the faceplates and it allso has a drill chuck that I just got fot it 30.00 bucks for that.So basicly I am giving the lathe away and recooping some money on the accessories.So let me know if your interested.
If your interested I can send you a pic
God Bless all
