    Default Identify lathe could be from 20s to 50s

    Hi;
    I have a lathe 20s to 50 era I am trying to identify. I would like to post some pics, but I am not sure how to. There are no tags or decals,other than it has a gear case cover that says Monarch, however from what I remember this is not original to this machine,nor is the forward/rev banjo. It works fine, but is not original. My father bought it in St.Louis, Mo. about 1960--1965, used, as a "Toolroom" lathe. The back gear lever is on the chuck end of the headstock. It has a 3 step flat pulley,driven from the top with a flat 3 step pulley thru a lever clutch to a flat 2 step pulley to a flat 2 step motor sheave mounted behind and below the headstock. The bed including headstock is 60 inchs long with a swing of 5" to 5.5" center spindle to bed. If someone can tell me how to post pics I will. I am a newbe in case you havent figured that out yet.
    Help anyone
    Randy

    If you'd like to post pics you can do it a couple ways...
    I like to hotlink them from Facebook or Imgur
    For example you'd upload the image to FB
    Then go to the image, right click, copy photo url/link
    Then when you post it in here, just type [img ]paste your photo link[/img ] with none of those spaces, and your picture should appear. Good luck!

    If you take pictures on a digital camera set the camera at the lowest pixel settings. Then you can call me and I can help you over the phone on how to do it. Hopefully you know how to down load them to your computer. If not ask a teenager or 20 year old to help you. When I have issues I ask my 30 yr old son...

    Assuming they are already on your computer and you can actually find them, this works for me
