New 1973, this machine has less than 2000 hours on it, possibly half that. It is in excellent condition, the paint is original, the ways are like new. This lathe was purchased new in 1973 by the Badger Army Ammunition Plant (BAAP) for a project that never happened. Shortly thereafter, the plant was shut down and this lathe was coated with cosmoline without ever making a single chip. I bought it from BAAP about 10 years ago. The tail stock and accessories were still laying in the chip pan on crepe paper dated August 1973. I am the sole operator and it has led a gentle life. Everything works perfectly. I have decided to sell it because it is much bigger than what I need for my business and I am downsizing.

Let me know if you need help stepping up your supply voltage, I can set you up.
One of the members here contacted me to let me know there was some discussion about the lathe I'm selling. It is definitely a D1-6 camlock spindle. I don't know why, but Monarch made them with only three studs. I had to remove three studs from my chuck to mount it. The stud diameter is .875".
I listed it on this forum a couple months ago and bumped it once. However, I haven't been an active member here for several years and didn't want to abuse the advertising policy here, so I let the listing fade away.
I'd love to come visit, I'm an hour north of you! Have you been working on those steam locomotives down there? I'm afraid if I do afterwards I'd be at the bank trying to take out a 2nd mortgage on the house to buy this fine machine!
