Clean it! take photos of the lathe from several angles, take seperate grouped pics of the accesories and tooling, price is always based on condition and tooling, but about £1200 upwards today! Post some pics up here, you will have to create an album (on the black strip at page top) and upload your pics to it then put them in a post, quite a few student users on this and other home engineering forums. Where are you in the country?

Thank all, any idea if the lathe can be disassembled to make moving easier should anyone be interested in it?
