By habit I peruse Craigslist and found a lathe that looked really interesting, so I called, then went for a 3.5 hr drive. Met the fella, really liked the lathe plus the deal included 8 Buck chisels, so it jumped onto my trailer-- glad it followed my truck--lol.
For the "small world" part--- turns out he's the father in law of our Pastor here in Cuero.
Here's the lathe: a Vega 1446, 1 hp, I've not seen before but LIKE the way it's made. He even had it on rollers-- might Keep'em.
Oh, it had at most 20 hrs on it---- I paid him $800.
Now I have to part ways with my Oliver 167-- no room,
