    Default WTB 14-16" by 54-72" lathe

    We are a small automotive restoration shop and are looking for a good/nice heavy/larger lathe. Funds are a little tight so we were looking for a for under $3000 that has at a 3-jaw chuck and some what close to home so that we could go look it over and pick up. We are located in central Kansas.

    Thanks

    A real one south of you. You need to run it and see what you think. It was normal for the 2000 RPM option to come with the 15HP. A 14" Pacemaker IS a 16 1/2" lathe.

    14" X 54" Lathe

    Thanks

    Do you know if that would be the hardened ways it is a 47? The seller doesn't know. He also said he can hold a .001" over a couple of inches and that makes me a little concerned about it condition. Any ideas on weight I have everything from 6000lbs - 9400lbs online.

    Thanks

    Serial will end with a hyphen and then two digits which will indicate the year. Oldest one I know of with the hard ways (which can plainly be seen as separate pieces from tail end of bed) was '47.

    This serial is ON VERTICAL FACE of front way at right end, I.E., seller would have to squat down with a good light to tell you what it was.

    Here is a scan of Bulletin 15 and 16 that will give you things like weight.

    Thanks to Greg Menke for the scans

    Added thumbnail of typical serial
