Default Enco Lathe, smoking deal

Picked up this Lathe on Craigslist last month.
The story is he was charging his laptop, the laptop started a fire and pretty much destroyed everything in the garage.
laptop was about 8 feet to the right of the lathe sitting just behind his tabletop mill, the mill was on a wooden bench the legs burned out and the mill crashed to the floor.
Also destroyed some type of laser engraver, Lincoln Mig welder, 3D printer, 3D resin printer, Mill,...... There was a Miller TIG welder 210 something, the face was pretty much melted he would have given that to me but I did not have anywhere to store it, figure for about $200 the TIG welder would have been repairable it went to the junk man.

His pictures of the lathe showed the belts were unaffected by the heat, did melt the plastic drum switch.
guessing about 250 degrees would not effect the metal parts on the lathe. I handed him his asking price $100.
At the same time there was a 3" vise on the floor, asked him how much he said $10, I handed him a twenty and said keep the change.

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren G. Bennis
