I know a lot of members here are machinist and have purchased equipment. I have a friend that owns a business and he is losing his property due to a bankrupsy. He has to liquidate all of his tools in his shop before the bank takes it. He has a leblond metal lathe that he wants to sell with a lot of his accessories. He was a furniture maker and used it for wood working mainly. I took a couple of pictures for you guys to see. I'm looking for a ballpark price for this lathe. It is about 7-8 foot long and weighs about 1500lbs. Thank you, Jim.

Hard to say without knowing the machine specs, tooling that goes along with it, condition of the ways, etc. The Aloris type tool post is a nice bonus. With a three jaw and a four jaw chuck and a steady rest and in good condition I'd SWAG it for a quick sale at $1,000 - $1,500.

I'd ask him what he would take for it. He wants to move it before the bank gets it.
In my area any lathe like that , as long as it all works and not beat to He double hockey sticks is worth 800.00 to 1000.00 With a lot of tooling, more.
Value depends on location.
Leblond is a good name in lathes.

Not a real high value lathe, but would serve a hobbyist well.

area of the country is a BIG factor. $500 in Chicago, three times that where none are available.

Since he is involved in a bankruptcy you might want written assurance from the bankruptcy court that the sale is approved.
