  • Good Day
  • I am looking for a used (but not too crappy) metal lathe.
  • Something between 7x16 and 10x28.2 with
  • around 1,000 watts power (1.34 HP),
  • Can be in inches or metric (would prefer metric, but will take inches).
  • Good rigidity and weight (250 to 400 lb)
  • basic tools in good shape would also be welcome
  • something made in the US/Canada, such as Precision Matthews, south bend, Kent industrial, Nova, Dalton, Baileigh Industrial, Little Machine Shop (even a "good" Chinese lathe!!
  • Preferably not too far from my area (200 miles from Derwood, zip 20855, Montgomery County Maryland)

  • I will respond to all suggestions
    Thanks, Yvon

Do you know about Facebook Marketplace? There are lots of lathes listed.

All the lathes you mentioned are made in China or Taiwan (including recent South Bend)

exceptions being old USA machines (South Bend, Dalton)

Watch Craigslist regularly for lathes, also consider using a search engine such as SearchTempest
