The company I work for inherited some equipment when a neighboring machine shop closed a few months ago, and prompted us to have to move our shop. We are now settled and in the process of sorting through all the items we inherited and have a number of things that aren't of use to us. One of the items is a nice Lorch lathe setup like the one in the picture. This isn't the lathe we have but appears to be the same model. The lathe we have has LOTS of tooling to go with it. Collet sets, quick change tool post I believe and other accessories and mounted on a nice stand. I know that I could snag it for myself but I'm just not in need of a lathe of this size. Is there any interest from the Hobby Machinist community for a lathe like this before we end up listing on CL or Ebay? It is located in central Oregon, but we have the ability to ship if necessary. In the near future I'll get some actual pictures of what we've got.

Need? What's that got to do with it? :grin: I'd have that scarfed up in a millisecond if I had the chance.

I know right? I'm exercising as much rational restraint as I can not wanting to spend money going the wrong direction of lathe size for my needs.

I'm interested, if the price is within reach. A small machine like that would work wonders for the small work I do. But shipping it across the country? Expensive, to say the least.
