I looked to try and find the best place to post this, apologies if I missed the mark. I've been wanting to get a lathe for some time now. I create kinetic metal art in my home shop, and I need a lathe to help me produce various parts and jigs. I received a little Christmas money, so in addition to more general lathe research, I've been combing ads. This Atlas lathe just showed up on Craigslist, and I'm wondering if it's worth the drive to look at it (I'm roughly two hours away, north). http://bloomington.craigslist.org/tls/5940235487.html I don't see that it comes with any tooling other than what is listed. That's a fairly good-sized lathe, and I know that Atlas lathes are good pieces when cared for. This one obviously has been sitting, with some rust on surfaces. Based on photos, is this even worth looking at, or should I just forget it? Or, might there be someone closer with some experience (I've never owned a decent lathe) who might be able to check it out for me or go with me to look at it? Many thanks in advance for the responses!
