Sorry for the long post but I guess my first post in the Monarch forum should say where I'm coming from. My Leblond 15" x 30" Servoshift and I were drifting apart. I was ready for something new. Maybe a HLV-H or a 10EE. I've been shopping for quite a while but there's not much around here for sale. Then I heard about a 10EE coming up for sale 38 miles away. I raced down there. Not a junker thrown outside, but in a major factory's maintenance shop to be used when they needed it. Looked great, had some tooling, the cross slide felt sooo smooth. I was in love. Everything was going good. But then I looked up and a few feet away was her sister. Bigger and longer legged. I guess there is such a thing as love at first sight. A 13" x 30" Series 61 Toolmaker. Bought new at the same time by the same company 65 years ago. I guess they've never been apart. I started to lick my lips. I know the problem of dating sisters, especially at the same time, but what was I going to do? So I brought them both home. I hope to get them unloaded and moved in today or tomorrow. Now the fun part will start. Getting them cleaned up and under power. The plan for now is to put a partition between them so that way one can't see when I'm rubbing on the other. I don't need to get that crap started.
