I have been looking for a "farm" lathe (decent sized and not totally worn out) and ran across this LeBlond that appears to be a 16x80 with a taper attachment. Despite the paint being crap, it is quiet with only a little wear on the ways. My guess is it is from the 40's or 50's because it predates the whole Regal and Servo Shift styles and layout. Curious about the model but mostly about the weight. There is a 6K forklift on site - don't think it could pick up the whole thing but maybe the head end enough to slide a trailer under it, winch it forward, and then lift the tail. I have a 6k forklift and a tractor that will pickup 4K so unloading should not be terrible. Any info on model or weight would be appreciated.
