Looking for a lathe

Something smallish. let me know if you have something for sale or know someone with one. I am not looking to spend more than $100. Thanks in advance.

This is not a selling thread, just looking for a lathe so I can work on a DIY fish tank related item.

Yeah, it was actually a pretty good game. Too bad my fantasy team sucked the last 2 weeks.

They have 1 on sale for like $75 right now. I would like to find something nicer used though. I will get that one if I can't find anything else though. I would also hope to get some tools with it.

My other option is if someone has 1 and wants to let me come over one weekend and use it for a couple of hours. I am working on making a couple of DIY Ocean Motions Squirts. I don't have the materials right now, so it is not going to be any time soon.

Let me know what you're trying to make, maybe I can turn it by hand or program one of the CNC lathes @ work.

Depending on size and material.

I am pretty much trying to make one of these. http://www.oceansmotions.com/store/p...9c91d8fcd358bf

I have the motor already on order, I just need to get the materials. The body will be made out of PVC bar stock, and the drum will be made out of Polypropelyne. It doesn't have to be threaded, I can use slip joints if need be.
