    Hello Lee, you might want to make a list of the tools that you have for sale along with the lathe. I know it might take some work, but a detailed listing might entice the right person. And in my opinion, listing a starting price point could also help. Not sure about your friend's situation, but since we became a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Club, we have had about four lathes donated, some people can use the tax deduction for their estate. At any rate, very commendable of you to help in a difficult situation. Aloha

    Hi Emiliano -
    Your suggestion was accurate - I had prepared a complete descriptive list of every tool included, which I immediately emailed to all the serious buyers who had contacted me. It made a significant difference, I think, and raised their level of interest at once. (I felt that the detailed tool list was too long to include with the original posting.)
    FYI -- The successful buyer of the complete lathe package saw the posting on this AAW site, for which I am grateful. Thank you. Lee Tourtelotte
