I just aquired a few new tools.....
A Sheldon EXL 44 and a
Unimat 3 lathe/drill press/table saw/sander/ will a bunch of tooling for the
unimat. Including two or three of the little precision vises.
With the sheldon lathe I wouldn't have a whole bunch of use for the unimat.
A couple guys at work want to buy from me. At first I didn;t want to sell
it, but know I'm thinking I could use the money to tool up the sheldon lathe
really nice. New toolpost and cutters and what not.
I would also like to hear any goods and or bads on effective yet fairly
What would be a fair price for the unimat. Very good condition . Original
wooden box, owners manual, a lot of attatchments, and a nice base that the
previous owner made. Has 3 jaw chuck and a 4 jaw chuck.
ps. The sheldon is circa 1953 and you can see all the scaping check marks
still. The old man I got it from said he bought from the origianl owner 30
years ago he has used maybe 6 times in those 30 years and the guy before him
did one small production run of some widget he made. It's beautiful.....
