I agree - here in the midwest old American tools are pretty available - lots were made in these parts.

Once you leave the used market where you look to buy a lathe with loads of good tooling in a combo buy - and yes it is used and needs cleaning/oiling/adjusting - but you skip into buying something with out tooling, and the tooling can sometimes be less common.

Just to be aware of... Might have good metric change gears though as well.
