    Default History of Monarch Machine Tools

    John Legge has sent me, for publication as a PDF, his detailed and interesting "Time Line History of the Monarch Machine Tool Company".
    It's on all the Monarch Pages as a hyperlink - and can be reached here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/monarch/monarch-History.pdf

    Thank you for your work.

    Is it known why the name 'Monarch' was chosen?

    That's a very interesting read. It could do with proof reading though. I'm not an English language expert but I spotted several typos. " Broachers " for brochures is just one example. Thanks for the article though, I found it enthralling.

    Regards Tyrone.

    It looks like John Oder was right on dating my Monarch lathe # B 1434 according to the information in the history of Monarch.

    The Author apologizes for all errors. I've sent out more corrected version to the few that have it on their sites. Which I hope they would post a link to in a new thread so it can become a sticky.

    That's great news. The article is excellent in my opinion, I'm glad it's being polished up.

    Regards Tyrone.

    Interesting...

    June, engineering work started on the Model EE lathe. This is to be a 10” tool
    room lathe with a hydraulic controlled variable speed headstock. Monarch
    worked with Western Electric Co. of Chicago to develop this lathe. Western
    wrote the initial specifications for this tool room lathe. Monarch invested nearly
    $100,000 in the development of the EE.
    That's about 1.8mil today. I bet they got their money back.
