I have bid and won items from them. Decent outfit. Just beware they charge 15% buyer premium and 7% sales tax. So you will pay 22% over your winning bid so bid with that in mind.

I spent the day watching auctions. looks like 18% PLUS sales tax is the new way. So 25%+... Gone are the day of 10%?
This auction is 16 & 7.....

Yeah always amuzing to see some bidders going after an item. And by the time it is done they have way over paid when you add the premium and sales tax.

A couple, three years ago we were at one auction where some scumbag went off the rails, riling against the ladys at checkout for this. They had to call the police.

They've updated the lathe listings with videos of the lathes under power.
I've fallen in love with #95 the Import-ish looking SB 1308, but not too sure about the sound in the video.
The Hardinge is whisper quiet as is one of the LeBlonds.

Sitting @$7000 as of 2pm EST.
There was one last year that had come out of a research lab, it was gorgeous. IIRC it went for over $12K
They seem to be blowing right past the $10K mark.

Went to auction and inspected items. Most everything are in very good condition, some close to excellent. In particular, I looked at SB1308 at request of middle.road. I listened to the machine and watched it run. IMO you are buying $1K of accessories and getting a free lathe. Currently at $1160. Will post some closing prices when I am able. Little mini lathe CF918 is fully loaded. Currently at $725. Same deal. all you need is metal to start turning. Already getting out bid on my stuff. Will see how it all shakes out.

10 AM. The prices are already pretty high, especially when you figure in the buyers premium and the rigging and transporting. I am not sure what some of these people are thinking!

This is quite exciting , kinda like watching an Ebay item end ! :encourage: Yep , so the HLV-H is way over $17,000 with the fees and stuff . Maybe it'll break 20 Gs .

I'm sure their are a few trigger fingers shaking at this point . Putting in a maximum bid with a minute left is a guessing game , and these guys have been at it for weeks . Lets see how this ends up . Total now stand at just over $17,500 . :oops:

Oddly - rigging, at least loading, was free at this one. Haven't seen that in ages.
Everything getting up there...

The SB1308 shot up to $3K as I submitted this. :(

Not many good deals to be had. Charlotte does not have a lot of surplus tools going around like say, Michigan, Ohio, or the Northeast, so my theory is the prices get high because of supply/demand. Now if you want textile mill equipment....

Some quick approximate prices, I may have missed the closing price:
55lb anvil $130 J-head Bridgeport's $1350 & 1950 Leblond 14x30 $3300 Butcher block work benches $120-220 Hardinge HLV-EM $15250
CF 918 mini lathe $1450 Tormach PCNC 1100 $8500 SB heavy's $3000 & 3350 SB1308 $3600
Micro Kenetics 1236 CNC lathe $3000 Peerless 14" band saw $525 Motor car gear head ZX-28 mill $1950 Hardinge D1-5C Chucks $180

Overall the equipment was in very good shape. Just went WAY to hell out of my price range. Plus 23% tax and buyers premium

Here ya go Gents, from your friendly neighborhood geek.
I'm still working to tweak the format of the output, however it does show the prices, but I only got lots 1-132.
(Actually, I just loaded the auction in another browser and they are still showing the prices...)

001_CLT.....pdf has all the lots with prices, but not hot links
001full_CLT.....pdf - has the lots with links. Unfortunately it is one looooong page. Just have to zoom in.

Yep pretty slim pickings. The only thing I bought close to Charlotte when I was living there was my Doall bandsaw. I actually got it from a guy in Midland. I think most of the small machine shops have closed up long ago so nothing comes up for sale.
