    Big Lathe, Anyone??

    Well, this may have already been posted here. I am rather new to this forum. But I thought you guys might want to see this big old Oliver lathe.

    Yeah, I've got one of those in my shop. And kitchen. And living room. And bedroom. And the end of the bed is over in the neighbor's yard.


    I've seen some similar pictures, but I don't know if I've seen one that long. It's a biggun, for sure.

    If I were rich

    Yeah, I am a turner and I just drool over this thing. I have to visit this page from time to time, cuz it makes me giddy. If I had masses of money, it would be mine. I think it would be fun to make custom columns and such.
