    I bought this mini lathe from Rockler three years back in order to make knobs and other small, turned items in my shop.  I used it for a few projects, then got pulled in other directions, and it's been sitting mostly idle in my shop for the last couple of years.  It's a pretty simple, belt-driven lathe that worked quite well for what I used it for.  I put together a Rockler mobile stand to be able to move it easily in my space, and threw together a simple drawer for storing tools.  The lathe is not directly attached to the stand -- the feet sit inside recesses cut in a couple of sheets of 3/4" plywood -- but it could be attached relatively easily.  I also added a Nova G3 chuck system and a couple extra sets of jaws (1" and 30mm spigot jaws), as well as a Wood River drill chuck.  Included also are a Sorby 3/4" roughing gouge, and a Rockler 3-piece carbide turning set.  I also have all the manuals for the lathe and Nova chuck, plus the various tools that came with each.

    Overall, this lathe and all the tools & accessories have seen very little use.  To buy all these things new would be about $1100.  Asking $650 for the whole shebang.  I don't want to break it up at this time, so this is a package deal and nearly everything you need to get started turning.  Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for looking!
