While visiting a machine tool dealer in Gardena, California last week, I came across two Southbend 9" change gear lathes on benches. Fairly well tooled with collet closers, collets, and a decent amount of tooling. Includes change gears.
While not mint..both lathes would make decent starter or second lathes.
Also fellow has a mint milling attachment of Atlas Lathe $100
Email me if you are interested.
