>Well, I finally purchased my first lathe. Nothing fancy and I have to build a stand for it and hook up a motor. I found it looking through a used tool dealers junk pile. It's an older craftsman 103.23070 and the only thing it's missing is the indexing pin. It's a 9x30 and it also has the 15" bed extension. I have a 1/2hp motor that I will use for it. It's in pretty good shape considering the age, pretty dirty and has some rust but everything works.
