Is that the sale price or what the vendor is prepared to pay to have it taken away!

You can just see what looks like a cross-slide on the floor in one of the shots, so there's a chance there's more there than pictured, but even so, a project is right!

Even if the bed is worn it would be worth it. If I didn't have a big queue of scraping jobs in front of me I'd certainly pay the asking price, scrape the bed and it would make a very nice base for a rebuild.

EDIT: Actually having studied the wide angle pic more closely it seems that the seller has cleverly hidden the fact that the bedway is severely pitted on the rear way near the chuck.

The condition wouldn't put me off (but they "May not post to Canada".

No sense of adventure around here these days.

I asked for better pictures of the bed. It's a bit grim but not unrecoverable.

Can you post the photos here? Sounds like you may be a scraping expert? Perhaps a series in MEW about scraping.

He's added pics in the advert David.

Scraping novice is more like it. Just because you do a lot of something doesn't make you any good :D

I'm puzzled by it's condition. It's obviously been wet for a long time, but was it also in a fire?

If i t was in a fire the pulleys would be gone. I think it's just been poorly kept and then neglected in damp storage.

The bed has been cleaned whereas nothing else has been. I think they may have picked it up for a song with a view to restoration and decide it was a bit too much for their time/capability. Note the sellers name - this is not his prime hobby. Now if it had been a Drummond I would have been interested but these ML's are just too modern for me cheeky

Those aren't pits, they're oil reservoirs wink

(I don't see the pits per-se as affecting the function much as long as the rest of it can be restored).
