That pile of wood looks like it could be prime real estate for powder post beetles. If not, it might well be a good buy. The Unisaw looks usable. The pile of rust that used to be a planer could still be one with enough labor. The lathe is a 60s era and a high risk machine.

Bob,
Why is the lathe a high risk machine?

By the 1980s (gold era) there were some upgrades made to the design. Those 90s were popular in school shops. Some got used all the time and got worn out from use by inexperienced users. Some didn't. The cast iron speed dial's cam surfaces were subject to wear, particularly if the cam follower failed.
In the mid 90s I bought two 90s at auction from a bid list (no photos). When I went to pick them up, I found that neither had been used for more than a few hours at most. That only happened to me once.
The lathe pictured in the auction in question has a Delta tool rest and a Delta outboard tool rest stand. The position of that stand makes me think that the tool rest didn't work and the user had to use the outboard stand to rest the tools on. I've seen that more than once.
