  • Dust collector and Lathe

    Hey Guys, I was hopeing to get your advice.
    I have a line on a Ridgid Lathe and Dust collector. The both appear to be in good shape. The Lady said she will sell me both for $300.00

    Sound Fair?
    I noticed both have been discontinued, Should I be concerned? or should I be running over with my cash in hand.

      What comes with this lathe in the way of accessories or turning tools? If it's just the bare lathe and stand, I think I would keep looking around. Try to find a nice condition cast iron bed Delta, Jet, Powermatic or other well known brand. If you need parts or accessories they should be easier to find. While many will interchange not everything will. I personally don't like a steel tube(s) in place of a nice cast iron bed. Please do tell more about the "Dust Collector" as I too have never seen one by Ridgid.

          wow the dust collector is a new one one me but if you live near a lowes you can get a new delta for $200 but it won't come with all the hose's that one does and as far as the lathe goes, it was never a great one but some loved it and others hated it i onwed one but i never had any luck with, i can't comment on if it was me or the lathe as to why i had no luck with it. to me thought the price seems fair for what i can see but i still think that you can do better if she will take $200-250. hope you get it and enjoy it

            I'm with OSC on trying to talk down the price for both items. I don't like that the lowest speed on that lathe is still pretty fast. If I were wanting to turn bowls, I would want a low of around 500 RPM or so. It does look like there are quite a few (unknown quality) turning tools and they are worth something. With the dust collector, I would contact Ridgid customer service and ask if you can buy replacement bags. If such would be hard, then do yourself a big favor and pass it over. There are loads of dust collectors out there.
