Elvie, My name is Julie Hall and I am trying to sell my recently deceased
husband's Custom Nichols Lathe that he purchased in December of 2000. I have
some interest and have no idea what to ask for a price. He only used it for
4 years. Although he was ill, he couldn't bring himself to sell it. It has a
3HP motor,torque arresting tool rest, vacuum system and "S" shaped tool rest.
I really know nothing about lathes. He paid $9265.80 not including
shipping. Can you help me come up with a fair price?

Julie, Elvie posted the above in July 2001, only seven months after your
husband bought the lathe.
I can't help with pricing, but this group is very morbid and for real
help I would look to one of the Web-based forums, like Woodnet or the
AAW's (national wood-turning club)
