    That seems like a very good price to me. What year did you get it? It looks like a newer model than mine which I got in 2011. Mine has three pulley ranges and I think that yours probably has two speed ranges.

    I purchased it in October of 2014. It has a little over one year of warranty left that would transfer to the new owner. It is the two step pully.

    Where were you a year ago when I needed you? I now have essentially the identical setup. Wonderful lathe! That's a very fair price, especially for someone who doesn't need to ship it across the country.

    I have had a couple of inquiries on the lathe but no real interest. My posting has been up for 40 days now so feel free to delete it if necessary.

    Ads can remain active as long as the OP wishes. Ads are closed if there are no posts for a month following the latest post. But, you can keep it active just by "bumping" the thread. A bump can be as simple as posting something like, "still for sale".

    When the lathe sells or you decide that you want to take down the ad just let us know either by posting in this thread or by PM.

    If it wasn't for the virus I suspect this would have sold in a heartbeat. It sure is a good deal.

    I agree, it is a good deal. I recently purchased a used Oneway for a good deal, but still it felt a little foolish dipping into my savings during these uncertain times (all notions of foolishness went away as soon as I started turning on it). Jim, have you considered using some type of payment service that would allow a buyer to finance the purchase, or pay with a credit card? Also, to anyone considering this lathe, but wondering how to ship it, I recommend you look into companies that ship motorcycles across the country. With the wheel kit on this lathe, it would roll right into an enclosed trailer where it can be strapped down. If there are any of these companies near you, they may cut you a deal if they have a delivery anywhere near NM and can bring this lathe back with them instead of an empty trailer.

    Kevin - Thanks for the tip on the motor cycle carriers, I had no idea such a service existed.

    I would be willing to accept PayPal where they could use a credit card. I also have a square account for credit cards. In either case who pays the fees would have to be negotiated as part of the deal.
