if you could get it for around $2000-2400 or even less. I have a Miller 250 Syncrowave but shipping would be pricey.

About the Enco Brand, my other concern was the three phase converter... This machine is not really that far from me... I may make arrangements to go and see it. Surely they can't expect to get what they are asking... Again thank you for advice, Greg

I had one once, these are not eNco, but eMco, made in austria, precision lathes. Some super11's are inch machines, others are metric, check so you won't be surprised. A lot of these went into schools in the 1980's. If I ever come across another, in good shape with some tooling, in that price range, I'd snap it up in a second.

better lathes. The ability to move them easier seems to drive prices up compared to the bigger even more useful stuff. I am in NE ohio and just bought a southbend to replas a nice atlas I have. The atlas will be going up for sale before long in NE ohio...
