    Nice looking machine, even missing the rear support (and top rotary table??) still well worth saving & putting back into use.

    I could be wrong but I think that most of those machines didn't come with a built in rotary table. They did usually come with an outer support but It's amazing how many go missing. Same goes for the boring bars.

    Regards Tyrone.

    You're probably right - I was thinking someone had removed it and it'd ended up a welding table or similar.

    I had a line on a 24" rotary table a few years back and was planning to take off the indexing/rotating square table on the OA & replace it with the big RT. However freight and my lack of serious interest meant it never happened. Can't say I care a lot.

    At least I got the outer support with mine. First thing I did was take it off & park it up the spindle end out of the way :-) No boring bars though. I can make them if I ever need one. Currently I use that machine less than I thought I would but that's mostly because the work that fits on the S type, goes on the S type. That one gets a fair bit of use.

    I wish I had a £10 note for every bar I've seen thrown in the skip over here. They were the real deal normally, hardened and ground by the makers. They must have cost a few £ to make in the day. It's only a 5 minute job to remove the revolving top table on the old " Kearns " machines.

    Regards Tyrone.

    John Oder, whereabouts in Oklahoma is this machine David is trying to unload? I'm just curious what part of Oklahoma it's in.

    Just finished up reading about this multi-year project. Nice work, Archie! Now I want to visit Tuckahoe.
