Default My $200 craigslist lathe score

Finally got around to taking a pic, it's a 10" Logan 820. It looks like crap in the pic, i'm in the process of cleaning it, the "rust" is old oil and dirt, at least it is where it's important to not have rust. There are a few dings in the ways but nothing that bothers me too bad, it's still fairly tight. I bought it without the motor hooked up, it's under the lathe. Normally I would have checked it out a little better but someone showed up at the same time as me, I took it because I knew I could get $150-175 for the lever collet closer.

Of course right after I bought this one I ran across a 12" Hardinge in better shape for $600, if I had the room I would have bought it and cleaned up the Logan and then sold it. If I could only run across a nice mall Millrite or Clausing mill I'd be good to go and I could get rid of my present "mill" which is a Linley Jig Borer. You can see a part of it to the right of the lathe.

The Hardinge was $800 and looks like only a 9", looks like a good amount of tooling. It's been listed for awhile now, maybe it's in bad shape. Nobody has any money, I've seen a 12" Atlas with no quick change gear box and missing the change gears go for $1000 at auction down here, there is such little industry so very little old American iron floating around. When I lived in NJ used machinery was everywhere.

That Hardinge is a 59; not a screw cutting lathe but second opp. I have seen many for a few hundred they are not a very good choice for a shop lathe. You Logan is far more practical, 200.00 for a that was a great deal.
