General International Maxi Lathe VS+

Located 30 miles west of Atlanta, GA

12” swing over bed ways (6” bed to center), 16” between centers

I bought this lathe new in 2007 to replace an old antique I inherited. It has served me well with no problems. I am selling to upgrade to a larger lathe and don’t have room for both.

Price new: $750 + $199 for stand + $200 for shipping and tax + $180 for additional tool rests = $1329

Variable Speed Drive 110 V AC control w/ DC motor
Rotating Headstock for outboard turning & sanding, locks in any position. Headstock also slides and locks at any position on the bed.
Oversize locking handles for headstock, tailstock and banjo.
Self ejecting Tailstock quill
Headstock spindle 1” 8 TPI
Headstock & Tailstock #2 Morris taper
Continuously variable control of 3 speed ranges (400-1500, 700-2650, 1000-3800 RPM)
30 second belt changes, no tools required
LED RPM display

Lathe with metal stand
Spur drive
Live center
3” face plate
face plate wrench
Knock out bar
standard tool rest
6 additional tool rests of varying size & shape
Bed extension and tool rest extension for outboard turning

SPARE VARIABLE SPEED DRIVE CONTROL UNIT (a few months after purchase, the manufacturer contacted me to say there was a speed regulation problem with the VSD and sent me a new one. I installed it but could see no difference between it and the original, hence the spare unit.)
