    Nick,
    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?

    Cool

    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. My buddy here in NE Ohio has 3 South Bend heavy 10's if anyone is interested...Bob

    Roy,
    I could not agree more. It is very hard to find nice used equipment in my state. I guess because it is an agricultural state and not a state that was centered around manufacturing.

    Bob,
    Thanks for the information, I am now glad that I backed out. I will PM you about the SB lathes.
