    It's been relisted again, its also got a best offer. Getting really tempted, but its a trip to Mull on the Ferry , via Oban, so that gonna put £50 on the price.

    Still, it could be worth a bit more it its cleaned up and is stuck on a pallet for delivery.

    I just don't need it at the moment. I've got the Boxford and its not really that much bigger and I've got alot of tooling now for the Boxford.

    Two lathes i nthe workshop? hmmmm.......

    What I'd really like is a bigger mill and sell the Dore Westbury.

    I can tell you're wavering.....just lower your offer to account for the extra expense [or most of it] involved in getting it back to Perth. :whistle:

    Never seen a lathe with a swivelling headstock, an unusual beast.

    I see your future too...

    Eye watering, teeth rattling, migraine inducing chatter if you buy that heap of junk...

    They truly are crap!

    With enough time and money, almost everything can be fixed

    Replace everything underneath the toolpost with a Boxford? Assuming the tool is sharp that is.
