    126" BC plus tailstock say 30" plus headstock say 50" = 206" or just over 17ft. Make it 17ft 6 ins to be safe.

    Just my guess.

    Regards Tyrone.

    That was my guess. The sales sheet I found had all the dims except spatial req's.

    Going to take a buddy's 22' deck-over, that should be perfect.

    Did the sales sheet mention the weight of the machine or detail the foundations required ?

    Regards Tyrone.

    Never did find an exact weight/foot of extended bed, but the base weight for the 30" c/c is 8600lbs.

    Foundation drawings are in the manual I got from Monarch.

    Well, she's home safe. Ended up getting it loaded for $500, versalift scale said it was around 10k so that was a little lighter than I thought. It's right at 17' long and is wired for 480v, not sure what I'll do there.

    Ways look great, machine seems fairly tight. .100" lash in the cross slide screw, but I can fix that. Unlike I originally thought, it's 20hp with a D1-6 Cam-Lock nose. All in, I'm excited.

    Nice machine. I'm looking for a machine in that size range. She'd pay my rent for, well, forever.
    AT $2200.00, if I mathed right, you stole it.

    If that's your home shop, I think we should be better friends.

    Is the motor only wired for 480, or are there other electric components needing 480v ? A lot of motors can go high or low voltage, not sure what you got inside though.

    Thatís pretty cheap I just hired riggers for the first time today and it was $1500 to pick a machine and conveyer up to load on a truck. So I think you got away cheap.

    There's only 2 motors, 1 being the coolant pump that doesn't work, so all Im concerned with is the spindle motor.

    Think I'll just reconnect the spindle motor and transformer to 240v and see what she do.

    Your $1500 is somewhat inline with a quote I just received for rigging at an auction here in Texas.

    Yea it seems to be pretty typical. Iíve gotten quotes for riggers before but Iíve always just been able rent a lift for about half that. Since most of what Iíve moved is easily rigged with a fork lift I have really needed a rigger. I also just recently picked up a nice 5ton toe jack and Iíve had some cheap machinery skates for a bit.

    Next step is to get my own big lift as my 5k lift donít cut it for most machines.

    That was my first thought but they needed 2mil in liability insurance and I don't have that much.

    Question- it came with an Aloris CA, but my other lathe has a CXA. Would I be sorry if I moved to the smaller post to share tooling?

    If you're other lathe could manage it, I'd prefer a CA. I just prefer bigger, more rigid if I can fit it. Also the CA size can accommodate larger tools.

    The CXA is probably rigid enough for your new lathe, but I'm thinking you will need to add a spacer under it, to get tool holder with tool adjusted to centerline of the work piece.

    CXA 1 holders can hold up to a 3/4" lathe tool. CA 1 holders can hold up to a 1" lathe tool.

    Aloris is real good for showing all the specs for each piece, if you google the tool than look at the spec, and in pics. Example CA-1 holder:
    Turning and Facing Holder CA-1

    Seriously? In a heartbeat. Unfortunately, shipping makes it unfeasible. If you decide you don't need it, and have a desire to tour ny with said machine, then yes.

    If you have to buy holders, you need a DA rather than a CA. CXA is a toy on that size machine.

    Check out the availability of proper sized heaters for your motor starter before you swap voltage. The machine is a constant run motor with clutches for the spindle so you will probably get by with the high voltage heaters until you really start to work her. I have a spare transformer, but its only a 10kva.

    Depending on location in NY, I would estimate $2000-$2400 freight from Oklahoma.

    She's home. Not in bed yet, but up on skates so I can at least nudge her around.
