    Wartime Monarch lathe with severe wear. Scrap, part out, or regrind.

    I wish I could give you a more direct answer as to the cost of regrinding your lathe but, since I can't, here's a link to a thread on this site with some quotes. http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/way-grinding-shop-143561/ It looks like he was quoted between $300 and $1500.

    Is it a Model A?

    Thanks Herb and John! The solid leg under the tailstock end threw me off a little as all the other model As I've seen had the split leg. I don't know if you had a look around my Photobucket album but I've also got a small radial arm drill press I need some help identifying, the only markings I...

    Is it a Model A?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you could help me identify this Monarch? The serial # is A2393 and it's roughly a 16X60. Thanks First pic: Links to more pics: http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/z452/CamKong1982/P1000766.jpg http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/z452/CamKong1982/P1000775.jpg

    Need opinions on a Gorton Mastermil

    I looked at a Gorton Mastermil yesterday and it seemed to be in decent shape. The ways were all in good shape except for the Z(knee) axis which was rusty but not pitted.
