    I think I am expected to tell you to go f**k yourself?

    .. but as it is Christmas season... "welcome"

    and do you happen to have a paint-code for that rather elegant colour on the Monarch?

    I vaguely remember some huge Ferrell Betts(?) machines at the Westinghouse turbine plant in Round Rock being that shade of purple.

    It doesn’t show well on the OP’s picture, but it’s actually a very nice Tuscan red. Same colour as the old Pennsylvania railway colour, and perhaps more to the point, the Canadian Pacific...

    Nice to see this lathe found a home.

    Haha pretty close. I think you were closer with the Canadian Pacific colour. Ill try and get the paint code. The Monarch and shaper came from a fine gentlemen in Port Coquitlam, Some of you might know him as "collector" on here.

    it originally was purchased as a production machine for Caterpillar out of Ohio in 1971.

    Indeed, we do!

    And he is not the ONLY one to appreciate the colour.. most especially in a world of OSHA green, tired-the-f**k-of-it greys, garish neon blue ... and gaslight-era whorehouse-BRIGHT-red 10EE. Even metalflake ORANGE?

    I did say "elegant?"
