no fancy bells and whistles but could do a lot with this one

looking at it i wonder if the motor could be made to slide on the bed

that would give more capacity but might not be worth the trouble









Re: oliver
I like how the lathe bed looks like a railroad rail.  I think its a sturdy lathe.  But he says he has never had it running.  That would cause me to give pause.  Hopefully any buyer will demand it be plugged in and run before handing over the cash.

any buyer would have to know what they are doing to buy that one
or have money to spare and like collecting old machines


imagine fifty years from now and an oliver will be quite a rare thing
