    If i didn't already have two lathes (both 14" swing), I'd suck up the extra weight and be all over this bad-boy.

    Default Here's another option

    Small through hole and probably too heavy but doesn't look like a bad price.

    Thanks. I don't know much about Monarchs (except that they are highly regarded). I think most of those I have noticed in ads have had under 2" spindle bores, so I haven't paid much attention. Do any small Monarchs (3'-5' between centers) come with 2" or larger spindle bores?

    There are many options for lathes with D1-6 spindles, so I am unlikely to consider a lathe with a spindle bore smaller than 2". I would like to have the option for feeding 2"-3" bar through the spindle. Many of the pieces I turn are long, relative the their diameter. Turning in sections can be easier than messing with steady rests.

    Don't think so, no. Even the large Series 60/61 Monarchs had relatively small bores for their swing.

    Thanks. I'm not turning up anything similar on google, so, if you will let me know a few more details, I may be interested.

    If it's similar or better than my 16x40 Kerry branded Namsun, it's a really well built lathe. Pretty simple, but rugged and accurate. I'm really happy to have found it.

    Yes, that lathe (a Clausing Colchester clone, I think) is very interesting. Michiganbuck also shared a link to it in post #11. I am planning to travel through that area soon, so I'll try to stop to see it.

    Not quite what you are looking for, but I believe that this lathe has a 3" or 3.5" spindle bore. Looks like it might be 40" cc - so it is short of what you wanted. Also, 300+ miles one way - so maybe too far as well.

    Thanks. I saw that ad, and it IS interesting, but not quite interesting enough for me to transport it that far.

    I do own a Sharp 1764 gap bed D1-6 2 3/16 spindle bore. It weighs 5000 lbs. It's a very beefy lathe , the base and chip pan are all cast iron, it even has a middle leg. A buddy advised me to take along a couple timbers along and bolt the lathe to them, it makes it easier to move on pipes latter on. Although at 5000 lbs the pipes can still sink into the wood and with out the middle leg they would need to be pretty heavy. I used doubled up 2x4s because that's all I had. I still think the roll back or the guy offering you help and the use of his trailer would be good. The load needs to be centered side to side and secured very well, tires good and a couple suitable spares and a jack capable of lifting the weight of truck or trailer and the tool. Hard for me to picture a truck mounted crane that could lift that kind of weight and then the weight will be so top heavy

    To conclude this thread . . . I took the plunge:
    img_1009.jpg

    Today I picked up the Clausing-Colchester Mascot 1600 clone (perhaps a Turnmaster?) for which Michiganbuck and Teemfan93 shared links. It is too heavy for my truck, so I hired a friend with a bigger truck and a knuckleboom crane to help me move it. The move went well.

    The lathe seems to be in decent shape, but it will be a few weeks before I really know. It is missing the "off" button for the coolant pump. Also, the oil pump for the carriage is not working. Hopefully, those will be easy repairs. I don't have 3 phase power in my workshop, so I picked up a 15HP 3 phase motor from the scrap yard a few days ago ($87)and I'm going to order a phase converter panel. (The lathe has a 7.5HP motor.)

    Thanks to everyone who offered advice.

    That looks like a nice machine, hopefully the carriage oil pump has not been broken too long
    Let’s see some close ups when you get a chance.

    A little more information about this lathe: I contacted Lagun to see if this might be a model that they imported and they confirmed that it is a Turnmaster AT 18, manufactured in 1981. They still offer many parts, which I assume will be expensive, based on the price of the manual I purchased.

    I now have a rotary phase converter (WNY panel + salvage motor) operational, so I am starting to clean-up the lathe and prepare it for use.

    I’d be ecstatic if the parts were still available and not worry about the price

    I am cautiously optimistic about parts availability. The manual ($90 w/shipping) covers a slightly newer version of my lathe; a few details are different. Hopefully, the parts they have available are the ones that I may some day need.
