A hardinge toolroom lathe has popped up on Ebay for £1400 and it's in Sheffield.
Looks to be in very good condition.

I had set my heart on an HLV but private sellers are few & far between, dealers obviously want top dollar, that one is tempting.

Looks to have had a cosmetic job done. Bed looks ok. Wonder what it sounds like 🤔

Yeah it’s definitely been given a lick over, but at that age hardly surprising, don’t think i would buy without seeing first though.

The 'new' rack doesn't look all that new...
The cateract style lathes are interesting historically, but not an HLV or HLV-H

That's a big price drop making it very attractive, timing not good for me though

Even with problems with the leadscrew/ nut it's good value a friend had a new leadscrew made for his Colchester at £260 pounds so add that to the lathe ,good value, the taper turning is worth £250 on its own I purchased one some two years ago
