Boxford is the British clone of the South Bend.
The $380 is a good price, but there are still 5 days to go.
Pickup is (Virginia??) and bring your own loading hoist and help.
Not even close to your previous sweet deals!

No, no pick up is just a ferry ride away for me.
I’m not planning on bidding though.
How many lathes does one guy actually need?

Agreed!
I draw the line at having two, although to be fair, one happened by accident!

Yeah! That was the 9C on steel frame bench with drawers + various 4-jaw chucks and tools from the eBay sale that went wrong, and it wound back to my much earlier bid (£124.00). A late night, ill advised play on eBay along with a friend, + 2.5 drinks. NEVER do that!
Next morning eBay gave me the option to walk away or accept. Even after I did the no brainer , it was trouble from my wife because it was 194 miles away over the other side of the Thames in Essex. I assure you, nobody needs more than two, and even then, only while one is being used to fix up the other.

I would cut myself off at two lathes. When I get my 16X60, I will try to sell my 10X30 for a reasonable price. If I don’t get the price that I want, I will keep it.

I don’t know how somebody could justify having more than two lathes.

It’s Like motorcycles.
The right amount is always 1 more than you already have.
