I have a chance to buy a small lathe. Its a old craftsman. 3" swing and 12" bed. Any Idea what it might be worth? about 25 years old.

Dont know what its worth but I would check the model # on the sears site and see if they still support it with parts. Easy access to parts would make it more valuable to me.
If you want people to notice your faults, start giving advice.

I have a Craftsman 3X12 lathe with the original sales receipt. It was sold in 1951 for 53 bucks and was manufactured by Atlas. A couple of years ago I checked on parts availablilty and Atlas still had parts available through Sears.

I have just decided to put this lathe up for sale in the local paper as I have just purchased an old 8x18 Rockwell lathe.
