I am certain this can be used for rocketry related things, but if it does not belong here, mods please remove this post.

I am selling this 7 in 1 shopsmith lathe that I no longer have use for. It is in good running condition and I have a few of the chisels and I have the table saw attachment. I upgraded the tailstock with a live center. I have the chuck attachment and the wood holding spike.

These lathes from shopsmith goes for $4,000. I would like $500 for this one plus the insane shipping it would be for it.

Thank you for your interest.

Shipping would be prohibitive; this is best advertised for local pickup. Where are you located?

I am located in a small town called Fort Hancock east of El Paso, Texas.

I am certain this can be shipped freight.

I don't knowif this still happens or not, but years ago, there was an option of using 'Fastenal Freight.' You would drop off stuff at a Fastenal store, pay and they would load it on the next truck going to the warehouse. It would then hop across the country just riding along with other freight, eventually making it to your local Fastenal store. A friend used this for antique tractor parts, as they were always too heavy or bulky to ship via common carrier and most people don't have good accounts with freight companies.

Looks like they still do it: https://www.fastenal.com/en/22/3pl-third-party-logistics .

Hi REK,

Could you give dimensions and approximate weight?
Do you have any manuals with it?
Also, what zip code are you in?

If we had a 3 bedroom apartment I would want one, but with all the major machine attachments.
I have been really missing my wood shop lately and wish I could make some sawdust.
Good luck with finding a buyer!

Apologizes for the late reply, it has been a long week and I am exhausted. The dimensions are 76” L, 40” H and 21” W. I am basing the weight on how it feels when I pick it up and it has to be around 70 pounds give or take.

I do not have any manuals, I believe shopsmith has them in their website.

I am in zip code 79839
