For that price you can find one which is complete and comes with some tooling.

I agree. At the very least, for that price I'd expect it to be complete. You are going to sink in some good money making it complete.

+1 on what the other guys said. Even if you got it for less money, the money spent on tooling it up and replacing the broken/missing
parts might not make up for the discount. Looks like it's had a hard life as well. Good lathes though: if you find a nice one they're
a good choice.

I have no idea what your market is like and how available machines may/may not be.

Note: This one supposedly has a taper attachment....
Difficult to know what else might be included or how negotiable the actual price might be unless you call.
The condition is also unclear.
I'm not suggesting you buy her. However, I'm not sure that you have enought data to make an informed decsion.
