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.)
