Hello everyone,

I am downsizing and wanting to sell all of my lathe equipment as a set at this stage for $12,000. It is in excellent condition and used for only five years.

I have posted my equipment on Vancouver’s Craigslist.

Please distribute this email to your club members. 

Thank you in advance.
