We are a community college located in central Iowa that bought this lathe brand new in 2001. The machine is wired from the factory with 240 volt three phase power. We attached a transformer to convert our 480 volt to the 240 volt that the lathe needs. The transformer comes with the lathe. Please see attached pictures for more electrical information or look up specs on this model on your own to see if it meets your needs. The lathe has a 3 jaw chuck, 4 jaw chuck, taper attachment, faceplate, steady rest and follower rest all items are pictured that will be sold with the machine. There is no quick-change toolpost or compound tooling. This machine also has coolant on it that we electrically unhooked so the pump never runs since we do not use coolant in our training program. The pump worked at the time it was unhooked. At time of disconnection from power, the lathe was operational. We make no guarantees to its operational status. Sold as is with NO guarantees. Normal wear for a machine of this age.

To remove this machine from our property arrangements MUST BE coordinated with our designated and insured rigger to load it on our premises and removal must be completed by May 24, 2021 at 4 pm. Cost for loading one machine from our dock to your vehicle will be $1500. Cost could be reduced if you can coordinate pick up times with the buyer of our other auction for a similar lathe and our designated rigger. All costs associated with transportation are the buyer’s responsibility. We will not allow other riggers or other alternatives to loading these machines due to our College policies so please do not ask. Inspections allowed with prior approval by appointment only, must follow Covid protocols. Contact us by e-mail to make a request to inspect the lathe in person. The lathe’s power will be disconnected by the time auction is listed.

E-mail Todd Grapp at or Dennis Knittel at for questions. This is a no reserve auction only.
