Looking to purchase a used lathe. Where do I find or look for one? Also tooling. Where do I get the tooling?

WholesaleTool has some very inexpensive tooling that works well for hobbyist use.  Lathes are all over the place. Ya just have to look around. CL,ebay,Grizzley,Enco,machine traders , machine dealers are everywhere.

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

I have gotten some of my best deals on tools by putting a "wanted" add in craigslist.  Someone may see my add, but not have their item listed at the time.  That gives me more time to find the best deal, and not be worried about someone buying it before I get there.  Also it is good to find someone selling there whole setup which includes the tooling.
