Funny how the title says "like new". Like new for a lathe that is 60-70 years old. Would you describe your 70 year old grandpa as like new?

an interesting looking lathe and if that one got little use it might be good for a lot more turning
like what they call a barn find in the car collector culture

They last forever. What you see is a mass of cast iron with the option of replacing the long for a short bed for bowl turning. The only short-coming is that you have to be of average height to have your elbow at centre level.

I think you both may be right. Looking at the picture of the Union Graduat e, it appears you can change/bolt on a new/different bed extension. Thus m aking it short or long bed normal lathe. AND you have the outboard too. N ot sure if the outboard is changeable or not for length.

Don't know but most new born babies come out looking pretty wrinkly too - and frequently short of hair.
