Make sure it has all the disk adapters, bearing cones, etc. With so many mfgs recommending replacement (not turning) of rotors, the brake lathe is not as popular a tool as it once was.

That said, a buddy of mine turned my front rotors a couple years ago and they are still going strong. $10x2 he charged me. Of course you need a way to measure them to see if there is enough "meat" to turn. I picked up this caliper from HF "open box" for $18. LINK

PS: he paid $300 for his lathe--I'm not sure of the brand but it is not Ammco or SnapOn...

I question the need for a brake lathe now days.
It would make a nice basis for a woodworking faceplate lathe though.

In my case there may have been a 12-pack of Heineken involved...
