Re: [atlas_craftsman] Age of Craftsman lathe

discrepancy somewhere. The price is $212 in 1948, $230 in 1949. In 1948
the 99 TM 2075 is $210 at $21 per month.
Thanks Bill, that kind of narrows it down a bit. I purchased a Craftsman 12
X 36 with QC gear along about 195X something and paid about $1000 or so. I
later lost that lathe by a divorce. She sold all my tools after I came home to a
"soft front porch". (If you don't know what a soft front porch is: it is
when you come home from work and find all your clothes in front of the door on
the porch, can be a shock when your hours go to after sundown.)
Oh Well, live and learn, but miss that heavier lathe with the thicker ways
and the QC.
