Default Warner-Swasey Turret Lathe - $250 - Upstate NY

If only I had a shop to put it in. Won't be squeezing a #2 in the cellar
any time soon.

Greetings, all. I stopped by a garage sale over the weekend, and
spotted a WS (number 2, I think it said) turret lathe sitting outside a
side building. The owner said he bought it intending to do a CNC
conversion, and it was running when he got it. It's been sitting
outside for a few weeks, without any cover.

There was also a vertical mill, inside, under power. The table looked
to be about 14" by 36" or thereabouts, and he was asking $1000 for it.

I am only an innocent bystander, and have no connection with the seller.
However, if anybody is interested, I'll stop by and get the owner's
phone number, or shoot some digital photos of the machines and slap them
on a website. The machines are located about 20 miles from Ithaca, NY.
