So you assume that people will own up to possessing these machines?dont know

Now you know why its called Stub Mandrel's site not Neil Wyatt's.

Maybe it should be an option to have your real name on the register or not?

Sorry, Neil

It's the ones in 'original condition' that are worth the money ... Just like the toy cars.

Neil,

It looks like you might have another one on the Register soon

... bidding seems quite enthusiastic.

"Enthusiastic" isn't quite the word I'd use Michael - Daft comes to mind... Talking of which.

Neil, can my (un-named) 'Baby' lathe have an honorary membership please ( if only on the basis that its faceplate looks a bit 'Adept-like'? )

Ian,

That's clearly an inferior Chinese copy - worthless and unsuitable for any purpose beyond getting the rind off a bratwurst.

Seriously obviously a clone - but any more pics?

There are at least two more than mine at liberty. There is, also. I am told, a collector.

They are there, but well camoflaged!

Richard..

I just picked up an adept lathe this summer, thinking maybe my son might like one. Turns out he has no use for it. So I was wondering what it might be worth if I was to put it up on craigslist. Looks like it is in good condition. British made, black, looks like it could be original paint.

Sold mine with motor, chuck and all the bits for about £140. Went to some dude in ireland I think. Neill managed to increase demand and prices with his restoartion I think
