This is a work-horse lathe for its size and in much demand.
Similar new Chin Hung lathes are still manufactured.
Despite its age it has seen little use.
It was purchased for our machine building business and used primarrily to make small parts, do rework as necessary and maintenance work.
The shop closed in the mid 1990's and the lathe used only ocassionally for light prototype work since.
It is hooked up and operating but has not been used at all for several years.
Other than oil stains it is in very good condition.
Terms Cash or cleared check (allow 2 weeks).
Location Rustburg, Virginia.
Pickup only. Can help load on trailer but recommend tilt bed truck.
