rvessarjr,I wondered what your question was so I clicked on the "All Messages (16)" link and went to the web site to look it up. There were 17 messages (1 added since the Digest came out). Your ID showed up once, your complaint to which I'm responding here. Either your original message never showed up or it's been deleted or your posting in somebody else's thread, so it's not possible to back track to determine what you wanted to know.You may have just posted your question at a bad time. People are usually pretty helpful here but remember, nobody owes you anything. Additionally, since I can't find your question I have no idea whether it was something with which people could help you.Hope it works out for you.AnthonyBerkeley, Calif.***************************************************In a message dated Tue Jul 30, 2013 4:51 am (PDT), rvessarjr writes:

NO flaming, coarse language or personal attacks. Don't try splitting
hairs, either. If you don't get the answer you were looking for, it
probably means you didn't ask the question precisely enough.
Lathe prices depend on location, and how you are selling it.
Private buyer, craigslist, eBay or whatever. In the rust belt
there is likely ONE Atlas, South Bend or Logan in a basement or
garage on almost ever block! In Hawaii, apparently, there is one
per city! That makes a HUGE difference in what people will pay.
So, it is REALLY hard to give a flat price, even without taking
the condition of the machine into consideration. Also, given
all that, a motivated buyer will pay way more than an occasional
tinkerer. If you look at eBay, you will see prices all over
the map on completed sales. (Auction listings are meaningless,
only look at the completed ones.)
