    Still trying to sell this lathe. I could really use the space.
    The machine is located on CT/MA border 1.5 miles off I-84. Have a crane an able to load.

    Thanks. Dave

    As my No. 715 was the same lathe apparently the same size I'll hazard an answer and say:

    Through hole is a little larger than 1 inch - I passed a 1" drive shaft for a Model A Ford through the hole to work on the pinion retaining threads.
    Swing about 7-1/2 over the bed (15 swing), a bit less over the cross slide/compound.
    Will hold 36 inches between points on centers.

    My lathe with motor and Drive-all weighed about 1750lbs total. Best would be to remove everything above the ways and the legs below for transport. If you remove also the quick change gearbox (4 square headed 1/2" bolts approached from between the ways.) you can put the bed on pipe-rollers and roll it across a concrete floor - or planks on a lawn.

    Dave can update the dimensions as its been 25 years since I owned No. 715.

    Loaded my Flather 16" (17") by blocking up the headstock end. Removed the headstock legs and backed the truck under the bed. Added some pipe and lowered the bed onto pipes in the bed. Rolled it in and took the rear legs off.

    Trying to avoid craigslist as the legs will get taken off and the rest will be scrap. Nice piece of history to get melted down.
