Sure (but it’s a short story). After searching for over 3 years, I finally found a near new (old) lathe. It was a single owner who bought it to make wooden pens. That means that most of the extra equipment was never used. Example, 4-jaw, steady-rest, the milling attachment, etc. He had past away and his wife gave it to their neighbor, who put it up for sale.
While it dirty with wood resin, it is otherwise in near new condition. I did a 100% dismantle, to inspect every part, and cleaned it up using (only) WD40. There is near zero wear on the bed and cross slide (which means it didn’t get a lot of use). The spindle runout is less than 0.0001 which was amazing. It was made is Austria around 1976.
I added the Aloris style quick change tool post and a pretty white (HDPE covered) stand with a felt lined drawer to store and preserve all the accessories.
