    I moved this lathe from Chicago to Florida in 1994.
    It was running fine in the speed shop, but has not been powered up since.
    Not a speck of damage, rust or corrosion, but could use a thorough cleaning.
    Located in Chandler, Florida near Dobson & Ray. No loading equipment here.
    Lathe is on 3/4" plywood base with eight wheels. Best option would be to winch it
    up onto a trailer using a ramp. I have an electric come-along. Buyer is responsible
    for pickup, but I may be able to get it palleted to a local truckers dock for $150. Ask!
    Must be paid in full within 7 days and before pickup but I can store it for
    a couple of weeks at no cost. May be viewed before auction end by appointment.
    Sold as-is, where is with no warrantee expressed or implied.
