Hello, this lathe is for sale and i'm interested but i don't know what type of lathe this is :whiteflag:
Initial price is 1500 euro (about 2000 usd), seems kinda low, so i wonder what type it is and if it's a deal :))

GET IT! It has a lever and screw tailstock, all that oil, good condition, and even if it doesn't run it's a deal.

It's a HLV-H

A HLV-H and monarch 10EE are two of the best toolroom lathes there are in existence.

YES, GET IT! Don’t see a chuck or collet nose? That will set you back a few bucks. But don’t let it stop you. Maybe use it to haggle the price down a bit…Good Luck.

An interesting lathe. Looks like it may have been for some sort of production work. It doesn't have the gear box for threading or a lead screw but it for some reason has the lever to close the half nuts. The bracket is there to support the lead screw and threading stops but its never been bored for them.
Would be a great turning lathe but no threading capabilities which in my opinion is one of the big advantages of the Hardinge HLV.

That's a real sweet lathe, looks to be in real good shape, I've never seen a tailstock arangment like that before, ​I want it..............:thinking:

Don, it's not one tailstock. That's just two tailstocks, one behind the other.
Screw in the front and lever drilling in the rear.

If in correct.

OK, I get it now, 2 different tailstock to be use as needed or as the work dictates, I'll chalk it up to a long hard day and temporary brain failure.........but I still want it, 2K seems a good buy:))

Probably the two tailstocks are mounted in that odd way just for storage reasons.
@Alfaone: bawl a lot about the missing threading option, maybe you can have a supplemental rebate (and don't forget to beg for tooling!) :biggrin:

2k is a fantastic price. But it would go for 10k around here!
People on Craigslist want $800 for an outfitted Taig. But I'm sure you've heard enough of me complain about lathe prices enough :)

This is wise advice here. Think carefully about what you want the machine for. Accessories and extras to make it capable of cutting threads may set you back what a fully equipped machine would.

Hi all, thanks for the advice. I'm still in doubt about making a bid, because this seems to be an auction and i think that what you see in the pics is what you get. The auction is in the Netherlands and ends on Monday so i will follow up this one.
There's other machines for sale too : http://www.proveiling.nl/2354/Veili...-cr/24292/Machines-En-Onderdelen/Veiling.aspx
Wondering about the grinder also :thinking:
@ Don B : you can have a go at it too :wavinghi:

That is called a TFB,or turn,face,bore lathe. BUT NO THREADING. It IS NOT an HLVH. I own an HLVH. My lathe has a quick change gearbox to cut 27 threads,and an infinite number more can be done by adding special change gears to an outboard banjo at the end of the gearbox. Really,the whole lathe is such a simple,but very handy design.

You don't want the TFB unless you can do without threading. And,I think the lathe is too expensive for the model it is.
'
The wide control box on the right hand end tells me that it is an older model,too. My 1964 has that type control box. And,even Hardinges do wear! Newer models have a much narrower box. And cost a LOT.
