Craftsman 12" x 48" lathe

I know most people here are accomplished machinists/metal workers. I
have a hobby lathe that I am selling currently on eBay, item #
330027867895. Check it out, I'm in Orange County, southern California.
It is about 90% condition with the jackshaft making a little noise
when operating, otherwise a very good lathe that served me well. I
want to upgrade to a 13"- 15" lathe American made also. Anyone got a
line on one? Thanks.

He is located in Costa Mesa, so is in your back yard.

Might want to check it out Before you sell. Those that delay..often get left empty handed.
Been there..done that.

I think you could use both lathes, I know I do. Clark

Be real nice indeed if I could swing keeping my Craftsman and purchasing the Clausing! I'll get information and try. Thanks for the lead, Gunner!
