    Looks to be a 4 or 5 footer.... I am not sure but it may have a dovetail..

    1000mm and it's gone.

    The lathe is very well equipped however.

    Default New Visby Lathe

    I have just listed this lathe for a friend ( same guy has still got the 3.5 T shaper ).
    The starting price is what he directed, advice as to its true auction value gladly accepted.
    My friend has just bought a new lathe at the H&F sale, so I think there will also be a Nuttall available soon.

    I also sent him a note. Said someone had offered him $500 and if noone could better that he would sell it. I already have an 18 inch and 6ft camelback straight edges but would love one that size. Will keep looking

    Hmm I wonder if there is any truth to his "$500 offer"... I just struggle to believe it, but you never know...

    I just checked US ebay and had a chuckle at this... The 18" Craig Donges straight edge I have, that has been heat treated of sorts and is fully scraped in must be worth a fortune now... Back when they were available the 18" bare casting was US$90 delivered to lower US states.. They must be collectors items now going by this price..

    Well, it IS red Richard I'm not sure if that makes a straight edge go faster or not. It does look like he went to the RC school of painting however, and given how much I know you just love painting there's sure to be a premium attached to such a master piece.

    Based on that price, as soon as I get home I'm going to strip the hammertone off mine, run a grinder over the base, and paint it ugly!!! Apparently it will immediately double in value!

    It is disappointing that I painted mine blue... It was the time before I because artistically enlightened with colour schemes..

    Default mew and me and miniature engineering magazines

    Heaps and heaps of them starting bid $20 Perth.

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Model-Eng...3D221596704526


    I contacted the seller, approx 11 boxes at average of 11kg each box - postage/freight is awful from Perth to Vic .... but if you live in Perth ........ might be easy to pick up

    If that horrible big long link has been corrupted search ebay for "Model-Engineer-grown-men-on-toy-trains"
