I generally concur with those figures maybe +/- 20%. The original collet
drawbar by itself I would put at $125 to $150. And the collets individually
(assuming that they are still in good condition) at $10 to $15 each. New
ones today run about $20.00 each.
And I don't think there is anything wrong with the green finish. What I
hate (and would have to repaint if I bought anything refinished that way) are
lathes and accessories repainted red, purple or blue. Purple in particular
turns my stomach. :-)
