    Default Old lathe bed

    Hi all, just got back from my local scrappy in Bayswater and found this old lathe. The scrappy guy said it's sold but the chap has not come back to pick up, so it might still be for sale .He wants $100 for it, if any one is interested send me a pm and i will give contact number.

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    I saw that the other day. Was wondering about using the legs for a stand but there a bit low.

    Pity this is in Mexico.
    I’d be interested in this if the saddle would fit my Wadkin RS.
    The Wadkin is 7 1/2” across the bed so that up to about 8” would be ok. About 200mm.
    The legs might also be handy if they were 24” high or up to 1” less. About 580 to 600mm.
    I was down in March but probably won’t be for a while.
