Please review the photos to check the condition of this item. A former owner has given the machine a new coat of paint at some point in time.

Collection in person of this item is available. Alternatively, shipping to GB non-remote postcodes with Monday to Friday anytime delivery is available for the price given in the listing. The length of the lathe means it is too long to fit onto a standard pallet, so the cost reflects the delivery charge for an over size pallet. If shipping to Highland/Remote/NI postcodes is required or Saturday or AM / PM delivery, please contact me for the additional cost. The lathe will be bolted onto a pallet for delivery.
