Recommended Posts

Hoping someone living near SoCal has an interest in turning.

For Sale, Local Pickup: Delta 46-460 Variable Speed 12" Lathe with bed extension and tools / accessories. - $800.

Retail for lathe and extension alone is about $1,260.  8 Drawer Base is Shop Made.

You will need to bring help to load as I cannot assist due to health issues.

This lathe was lightly used by my father for several years.  He was in his 90s and so did not do a whole lot with it.  It is available to pick up in the Riverside area of southern California.  The machine is very smooth and surprisingly powerful for its size.  There are two rests, a mounting plate, centers, drill chuck, and other odds and ends that will be included.




There will also be included a set of medium quality, mostly HSS turning tools.

That will be a good buy for someone.  I'm still using an older belt swapping version of that one, and it does its job just fine.  I don't do a lot of turning, but the need comes up occasionally.  If I was closer, I would have bought that one, and all the chucks you were selling too.
