And the clearing out continues.  Putting both of these under one thread to try and not spam the forum too much. 

New Precision Mathews 1440GT Lathe with LCD DRO.  Long story short, I had another PM lathe and had some issues so they offered to let me upgrade to this one made in Taiwan.  I had to wait a year to get it and if you order now, there is still about a year wait.  These are highly regarded lathes.

Mine has what is called the Jacobs conversion which is just the VFD setup that allows this 3 phase machine to run on single phase, but Mark (Jacobs) builds in options for variable speed, proximity stop (very nice when threading to a shoulder), two speed breaking, and some other nice functions.  If someone is really interested, I can provide all of the info and details.

For TGO I am going to include 3 8" chucks (a 3 jaw, 4 jaw, and TMX 3 jaw Set-Tru).   These are a lot of money in and of themselves.  I have an Aloris type BXA quick change toolpost with a lot of holders for an additional price if the buyer would be interested.

TGO price is $xxx with the chucks.  To buy this now for the same setup would be $xxxx.  This is not a cheap lathe, but is about the best value out there for the quality.  This has a 5 year warranty.



2nd is a Jet JTM-4VS mill.  This is basically a Bridgeport clone.  It is also 3 phase, but running on a VFD with push button controls.  It is variable speed via either the head or the VFD.  Has a pneumatic drawbar, and powerfeeds on X and Y.  It will include a Touch DRO controller that uses an Android Tablet as the DRO.  When I bought it, it had optical scales on the X and Y which are still on and work with the TouchDRO.  I bought 3 new Magnetic scales so I could add one to the Z and replace the X/Y, but I hadn't got around to it yet.  They will be included.  I will also include the 6" Kurt vice which has soft jaws on it right now, but I also have the original hard jaws.  Could be repainted in spots, but other than that it is in good working condition.


Price is $xxx for TGO'rs.  

Both of these machines are hooked up and can be run.  I can load them on your trailer with my tractor.  Any questions, just let me now.

  • Be very wary of people who contact you privately to offer an item for sale.  Every single time someone has been scammed via a Want To Buy ad on TGO, the scammer has done it privately.  Force them out into the open so that the other members and moderators can help make sure they pass the sniff test.
  • Use the Buyer/Seller Feedback feature to research who you are dealing with.  Negative feedback should inspire caution.  Come back and leave feedback for each other after the transaction is complete.  Your experience will help others.
  • NEVER, EVER agree to use an electronic form of payment to buy or sell a gun!!  None of them, that we are aware of, will protect you against fraud in a firearms transaction.  They all have terms of service FORBIDDING the use of their services to buy/sell guns.  DON'T DO IT.
