That's an oldie.  Old style gear box, threaded spindle nose, I sure soft bed. $340 I say is about right price.

Got a look at it today when I went to pick up my piddly items...
Very good shape IMO, and, AND, it had the taper attachment on it.
Tool post mount on top of the carriage was a different color though...
I wanted the two large pulleys sitting on the end there.
Tag picture didn't come out well...

Don't look too bad. How did the ways on the bed look?  I don't see any scoring marks on the bed.  The cross slide and compound looked good.  Gearing looked good too.  Buy it!
