    Default Ward #7 turret lathe for sale

    Posted this on the machines for sale forum but it may be better posted here?
    The link- Ward #7 Turret Lathe FS
    I may have to part out this machine given the low demand for such an old beast in this area, or any area.
    It has been a great lathe to have and it was fun to restore it to working condition.

    Any demand for #7 parts?

    Saw the ad on Craigslist. If I had room I'd seriously consider it but at 73 I'm in downsizing rather than
    "upsizing" mode so it ain't gonna happen.

    Sadly those old turret lathes are becoming less and less needed but even in today's CNC world there
    are still some jobs they can do well. It's almost hypnotic to watch a good operator putting one of these
    things through its paces--the parts can pile up pretty fast...
