If you've been there, you'll understand why I just had to have this little jewel
The fun thing about playing with machinery is I learn something new every day. Even though I already have a Delta lathe, a big table saw, six grinders and two drill presses, but I just had to have this baby to play with for a while. Wonder how is it such a unique, interesting and solidly-built machine has flown under the OWWM radar for all these years?
The Reypo is just a really unique design with some clever features. It has even more presence on the bench than in the photos. The main body with motor weighs all I could carry. The table saw/grinder table is medium-size, but the DP and lathe are large enough and heavy enough to do full-size work. The lathe/saw/grinder spindle bearings are a foot apart and the lathe chuck thread is inch-and-a-quarter with a #2MT center. Even though it is called "Model Master", it is 67" long end-to-end and looks to be able to turn 36" between centers. This is real beef.
Anyone ever seen a Reypo? Any dirty paper on one? Parts?
