I have a lead on a vintage grizzly (that’s what the guy says anyway) In the pics I have the copy attachment is grizzly. The lathe itself has the motor mounted underneath. Did grizzly have such a beast? I can get the whole thing tools and all for 275$. Any advice greatly received.

Wonder what size/voltage the motor is. The copy lathe maybe. Sounds like a deal if it is in good condition.

I don’t know where you are located at but in my area I can’t find a wood lathe in decent working condition for twice that price. I’ve been looking for a couple months and everything local to me for that price is very small or has issues like a bad motor or cracked pulleys and Lord only knows about the bearings. I know prices vary greatly based on location but if I was you I would make up my mind pretty fast before someone else does

Grizzly has made a bunch of different machines over the years… from small desktop things to large metal working machines. They also had different duplicators available. Hard to tell what you are looking at based on the picture provided.

For reference… last year I picked up a Jet 1236 lathe with a Vega Pro duplicator and accessories, talon scroll chuck and mobile base for $150. All it needed was a new belt.
