I have a nice Oliver lathe that needs a new home, If you like "old iron" then this is a machine for you. I'd initially bought it to expand my capabilities and it did well, but I had an opportunity to upgrade, so I did. Nothing wrong with the lathe, just need the room. I have replaced the drive belt and the starter switch. It's 1 hp, and wired for 110v--but can be changed to 220. Speed range is 600-3400, Reeve drive.
When I got it, there were no Oliver faceplates or centers with it, or a tailstock. I did find a replacement tailstock which will go with the lathe. It also has a spindle converter that makes it a 1"x 8. As a plus I also have a manual with a copy of the original sale receipt from 1968.
I can deliver/meet say out to 150-200 miles, buyer covers ga$. I'm in SE Texas 30 mi. North of Victoria.
I'd like $600.
I can email pics if you like.

Everyday liberating nice things from ordinary chunks of wood---and I like gnarly wood, the outcome is nearly always better than the start.
