I sure isn't for everybody, but find another one and make it an I/M model. I don't post my machine on this site. Everybody has their opinions but I has have three others for sale from $30,000 to $6,000. I eally don't care if it sells or not, I smile every time I walk by it!!! Just like this radial engine I just bought,, because it's cool as $hit!!!
Pretty sure he was making a joke, 220swift. Those were standard 1960's consumer gooseneck desk lamps on the set of the Star Trek TV show. Nothing to do with the retro-style head for controls on the Hardinge.
But, you know, if you were to fabricate the retro-style head, you could fabricate the supporting shaft and rear machine panel at the same time.
I just got another 10EE in and it is by far the cleanest and unmolested one I have ever had and I have owned 30 of them. I will have to post some pictures of it later. Now the rare 10ee, I was thinking of selling it but I think I going to get it back to stock running condition. it is just to cool of a machine to let it sit. It really is a unicorn...
