Used Woodworking Machine: General 260-1 (Lathe #1)
This is a very nice General 260-1, variable speed, lathe. Manufactured in Quebec Canada with a significant amount of cast iron making it very heavy, stable, and vibration damping, unlike most modern lathes. General, not to be confused with General International, made very heavy duty tough machines targeted for use at woodworking schools and professional woodworking shops.
Al, a Wounded Warrior who works in our shop, takes great care and pride in cleaning our used woodworking machines and getting them ready for you. Al cleans all exterior surfaces, removes any surface rust from exterior milled surfaces, repaints if needed, and ensures the machine is working properly.
All proceeds from the sale of this machine goes to fund the construction of our new teaching classroom.
