Here is an unbelievable 16 x 8' Hendey belt drive Lathe that recently came up for sale in an estate sale here in
Seattle. Made in 1929, then run in a training school until,retired and restored by the old timer who recently passed away. Apparently this lathe is completely restored- having been ground and scraped by the owner.
I briefly checked under the tailstock and could feel NO wear patterns or edges developing from use. Seeing this lathe is like stepping into a time machine and going back to when it was new, fresh out of the factory, set up in a local job shop. Once in a life time experience.
They also are offering a Hendy Camelback drill press! Same condition!
Fortunately for me, the estate sale guy who is disposing of all the equipment and household possessions has priced the lathe way beyond what I would pay - currently sits at $10,000, with all attachments. So there it sits.
