Arkansas sounds only slightly better than Wyoming for used lathes. 'Bout time to take a summer vacation to get away from the heat...maybe a trip up to the Great Lakes or East Coast and watch Craigslist ads along the way?

That type of LeBlond lathe didn't come with a compound. It is a rapid production type which was made for mass machining of parts that were all the same like brake drums for example. I looked at a newer version a few years ago but passed for the lack of a compound.
