That’s a nice looking little machine. What is your location? I’m no expert on old machinery prices, but it might bring you between $150 and $200. If I were close enough we might talk business on this. I’m in South lower MI

The chuck has some value but missing the toolrest I’m afraid the lathe itself probably doesn’t. You could possibly sell the tailstock on ebay and get around $50 for it.

Loren is right about the toolrest being missing. I didn’t even notice that when I commented earlier. That’s unfortunate. Hopefully you can find a buyer:)

A tool rest is easy to replace. It is the banjo that might be a problem, but you can probably find a similar sized modern machine and buy a replacement banjo for the modern machine, and a tool rest with matching post. If you want to use it.

Certainly a classic and would be a fun restoration… but:

  • Single speed
  • Wrong chuck for woodworking
  • Missing parts as mentioned
  • No accessories or tools

I’d be glad to get $50 for it as is.
Put an ad over at OWWM for it.

Cheers,
Brad
