Default Wood Turning Lathe Question

Just been asked to find info on a lathe as a friend of a friend is having a garage clear out and has dumped it with me to find out anout it.

Look to be in perfect nick but just seem to have the motor end.
Details are:

NUTOOL Group Plate
5 Speed Wood Lathe
Model No.: NWL-37
Volts: 240 50Hz
HP: 3/4
MFG Date: 914200

He reckons its been in the garage for nearly 15 years - looks like it has never been used.....

Is it any good and what value would you reckon (would like one myself...)

Found this:

The contact details for Nutool are as follows;
Nutool Machinary
Rockingham way
Redhouse Interchange
South Yorkshre

01302 721791


Also read that it is the same as a Clark. Like this: Clarke CWL12D Wood Lathe - Machine Mart

Being a five speed, it's probably a higher quality one. Unfortunately wood lathes just don't hold their value like metal lathes. Not seeing it I'd guess it was worth no more than $200. Less without a tool post.

Small money - to be absolutely honest, they are OK for maybe starting out, and with any parts at all missing, its worth pretty much nothing.

Small, high quality ones are available for around the 300 mark from the likes of axminister tools etc, so no point in spending half of that on something thats incomplete and lower quality anyway.

Cheers for the replies.

I know someone had offered 50 and it was turned down.
Will give NoTools a ring and see how much the parts will be to get it up and running (not even a chuck with it - but they haven't finished clearing the garage out yet!)
