Sieg SC2 7x12 Mini-Lathe for Sale (11/07/10)

Back in June, Mini-lathe.com world headquarters moved from the Washington, DC area to a new home near Richmond, VA.  As a result of this move, I'm reconfiguring the shop and have a Sieg SC2 for sale.

The lathe is the most recent 7x12 model from Sieg in like-new condition with all the original factory accessories plus some extras. It is the actual lathe described in the SC2 Review and has the new hi-torque brushless motor. It has less than 10 hours of run time on it. Since I currently have 5 lathes in my shop, including the Micro-Mark 7x16 and my faithful highly-customized Grizzly 7x12, it is redundant - that's why I'm selling it.

In the price, I'm including the optional digital tachometer feature. A $120 option if you buy it separately, the tach shows the current spindle speed.

Even better, this lathe has been upgraded with a rare and unique feature: the Sieg Dress-Up Kit. Available from LMS for $59.95, this kit replaces the stock black plastic handwheels on the carriage and tailstock with machined, red-anodized aluminum knobs with chrome roller handles. It also replaces the stock black steel handles on the tailstock, tool holder and half-nut with chrome handles. If for some reason you prefer the stock knobs and handles, I'm including them as well.

The Deal

Here's the deal: the lathe goes to the bidder submitting by email the highest bid of $600 or more by 12:00 noon on Friday 12/10/10 - just in time to make a great Christmas present. If two or more high bidders submit the same dollar amount, the one with the earliest time stamp in my email inbox wins. With the dress-up kit and tach, this lathe has a retail value of over $800, plus it's already cleaned, adjusted, tested and ready to use as soon as it gets to your shop.

When comparing prices, please note that the Harbor Freight 7x12 (SKU 93799) currently $549.99 and the Grizzly 7x12 (G8688), currently $569.99, are the older version that do not have the high-torque brushless DC motor. The only comparabe lathe in the U.S. is the LittleMachineShop.com 7x12 (P/N 4100) for $639.95 - and that's not including the digital tach ($120) - or the Dress Up Kit (priceless!) that are included with this deal.

Initially, I'm offering the lathe for local pickup only, payment by cash, certified check or PayPal only. If you're within driving distance of Richmond, VA you can pick it up at my shop in Midlothian, VA (click for map), about 10 miles west of Richmond.

If I don't get any buyers for local pickup by 12/10/10, I will consider shipping it. If that happens, I'll update this page with details, including shipping and handling costs.

Please contact me by email if you are interested in purchasing the lathe or have any questions.
