    I'd go with Tyrones ''10 ton to be safe'' ............from what little I know of Langs is they are very heavily built, possibly more so than the hallowed DS&G.

    Thinking logically about the weight, a skinny 10 foot mastif weighs 3.5t from memory and the lang has more than twice as much iron and no ally or glass fibre !

    The quality heavy duty British lathes of that era - Craven, Noble & Lund, Lang, Swift, Broadbent, Stirk etc were all known for putting plenty of cast iron into the beds. Thinking about it we'll probably be talking in the 8,9 or 10 ton area. Aim for that and you won't go far wrong.

    Regards Tyrone.

    They made some big gear alright. I wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to the weight of that lathe. Their planers and plano-mills were good machines. I've been inside that building, that was the main fitting bay.

    One of the last installation jobs I did was a Plano-mill like the one in the photo.

    Regards Tyrone.

    I think that Lang is 1940s Unless it has been rebuilt I can't see it going for more than £2-3000 as a private deal with someone who is reasonably keen to get rid and that would be a fair price ,maybe £4-5000 from a dealer.

    Theres been a delay as vendor was procrastinating as he believed a dealer would give him good px against a cnc/manual lathe.
    Im going up next week to inspect it,and check out the local area(louth) for a machine mover
    Regards

    Hi folks new to the forum, couldn't help reading this post about the age of the 120" Lang, I believe this is one of the first A4 models starting from 1936 to 39ish before the head changed design.
    This particular machine has no serial numbers indicating the ways have been reground at sometime.

    No but I did try buying it.
    The cost of collecting it is more than the value of the machine.
    After posting my last rely I did a little more research and found that the Lang is nearer to 1933.

    I found he wants to sell it then he doesnt.
    What he wants for it and machine mover price makes it very expensive for a machine with basic screwcutting

    Yes,its similar vintage to the other Lang .Im amazed at prices in the UK for antiques.Out here in Oz it is scrap metal.Sounds like the owner is Arfur Daley.

    Naturally you can/could get them for scrap money but here in the uk everything has been exported or scrapped hense we are having to buy stuff you may well have turned your nose up at once.
