    Jeff, it seems to me that you are interested in this sturdy machine, anyway it looks very good, cast iron frame, always the best.

    Ad, I would have to sleep in the garage if my wife saw me bring this home! I would love to have something like it, but not now...no room or $$ but maybe sometime.

    That's a biggie, alright. That puppy could turn a lot of pens at once.

    Looks like it's been well taken care of, or nicely restored.

    geez. That's so cool.

    Only problem, it's both 2000 dollars, and 3000 miles, out of reach!

    I have lived my life poorly! What was I thinking?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I ran a Lodge & Shipley CNC metal working lathe years ago when I worked up at Los Alamos Labs. It was a quirky slant bed design…I never liked it.
    I didn’t know that they made woodworking machinery.
