    Lol you stole that machine out from under me. The dude was supposed to let me know if he got a better offer but I woke up the next morning and it was marked sold. He was in fort wayne Indiana and said a guy from Michigan came down and looked it over and took it.

    Whoops, sorry dude! It's turning out to be a good one. Finally got the carriage freed up tonight. It wasn't the half nuts, it was the carriage glued to the ways by rust. I loosened the gibs and just kept working it back and forth and it finally started loosening up. Ways need a lot of polishing.

    Yea I knew that thing was gonna be a good machine with a little work. I'm just glad you didn't scrap the thing. I got me a nice alternative I'm very happy with so worked out for both of us.

    Good on you. Scrap it? Horrors! Do not speak of such things in my earshot! I don't think i've ever scrapped a machine. Don't intend to either. They must all be preserved for future use.

    Collector, That's a nice lathe, but WAAAAAY out of my price range. Good luck with your sale.

    nice lathe. looks a lot like mine. about the same color and it looks like it has the lead screw reverse as well as the collet holder on the tail side. does yours have a 2 speed motor? whats the top speed. i have never seen another that had those options or the collet holder.

    I got my L1 spanner wrench and the nut just won't move. I've hosed it down for weeks with penetrant. Haven't tried heat yet, Are there seals i need to be wary of?

    I was planning to load the wrench up with an engine hoist and cheater bar and let it sit under load over night. I've had success with that in the past. I'm not to the point of using chisels and whatnot. I do not want to damage the nut due to the difficulty in replacing it.
