    [wtb][sa]cheap metal lathe

    Just wondering if anyone out there has a very cheap metal lathe that's not being used. I'd like to get ny hands on one to attempt to build pipe mods. Funds are limited best I've seen so far is 350. Prefer something with 3 and 4 jaw chuck and a few cutters

    I seen something on eBay not long ago, pretty small, perfect for small jobs. ^ tools in the one unit (wood lathe, metal lathe, mill, drill, grinder and bench saw) 'bout $200ish from memory.

    Could find a link if you thing it might be what you are after.
