    There are many used machinery dealers that have a variety of lathes. Search your area and contact them. You will pay a higher price than getting something off kijiji, but also it's rare that the larger lathes come up on kijiji. What are you looking for? 1440 range or bigger? What will you be using it for mostly?

    I just did on a Ontario search on Kijiji. Within the first four pages, I found at least four that would be a good. What is your price range and what sizes do you look for? Do you have a make or model in mind?

    Then you had better give us more helpful parameters! I for one have a number of metal lathes ranging from 30'' to 30' long. The old adage is that you can turn tiny pieces on huge lathes but...

    I've had a 9C South Bend lathe 9'' X36'' for approx. 6-7 years as a hobby lathe & enjoyed working with it most times.

    However the 2 main issues I've faced are : the 3/4'' bore only is really too small and changing/adjusting gears for threading was a pita each time I had to do it

    If ever I get another lathe I'll pick one with at least 1''-1 1/4'' bore , plus the original steady rest and a gear box.

    It is not for sale in the anywhere near future... it is my daily user.

    I run a (old1970-ish) high-school Harrison lathe. I bought it at an auction with all the tooling. It is small-ish, 11–24. But it does 95% of my work, And just over 1400 pounds (anything larger I take to work)

    It has a through headstock of 1 1/4 inches.

    all in, I’m over two grand+++

    Quite the distance from you but good deals. They are south bend 9 lathes. Both are model C. Supposedly one of the best small lathes (accurate), infinite amount of information on practicalmachinist.com. If your looking for bigger i would suggest looking on govdeals.ca for a standard modern utilathe.
