9' lathe donation

Post by Marc bezanson »

While picking up some more wood I had sawn up for the tractor building, John moorland asked me if the club would be interested in his father's lathe. It's real nice! So I figured I'd ask you guys. Any need for machine shop?

Looks nice, long bed for big projects, but quite old. No quick change gearbox. Does it come with change gears for threading? Does it have powerfeed? Would need a decent spot for storage too, not sure how full the quonset hut it. I'm not sure if bill douglass is on the forum, he's the new machine shop guy, would be good to get his input.
