    That is a beautiful old machine !!!!

    I would restore It and keep it if it were mine.

    It would make someone a great hobby lathe and a good way to start machining.

    Thanks for the encouragement but I just don't have the space to keep it. It must go to the best offer. At this time I would take most anything to get it gone. It is belt driven by a Vee drive 5 HP 210 volt single phase electric motor. Easily wired anywhere.

    I thank you for your kind comments sir.

    I still have the lathe. I live in Moline, Illinois. I have moved it outside and have it tarped. If you want the lathe I would allow you $700.00 transportation costs. I need to get it gone and feel very guilty for moving it outside, like an old friend, she deserves better. Let me know your thoughts on the idea please. You can email me
