    Default 1962 monarch 10ee project for sale

    Hey everyone,

    I have a 1962 monarch 10ee. It was originally purchased by the Chrysler Space corporation and used as a tooling lathe for the Apollo rockets. I purchased it from RocketDyne in 2013.

    I built a large tank and used electrolysis to completely strip and clean the old paint. I then treated it to a two part epoxy finish.

    Unfortunately life changes and this precious lathe was left in the balance. It's been sitting for 5 years untouched.

    I need someone who wants to finish the restoration process. I am moving and need to empty out the garage.

    Anyone interested?

    Chris

    I might be interested. It depends on a host of other factors. PM on the way.

    I wish you good luck but $3K for something in pieces is too much to me.

    I would buy the headstock cover if it ever comes to part it out.

    I think you need to get real on the price, 4.5k or 3k will not find a buyer in 30 days...$1500 or so might,...Phil

    Keep in mind that for a new buyer this is a huge risk/gamble. The buyer has no way to check the machines function, and it’s pretty hard to verify all the parts are there. Parts for these machines are expensive.
    $4500 is real high for a pile of parts

    The price is negotiable. I appreciate the suggestion.

    I emailed Chris to find out what is there and what isn't. Unfortunately for me, Chris got rid of all of the modular electronics, even the motor and the main contactor. I would have been interested in a modular basket case.

    I think you might have misunderstood. I certainly haven't thrown anything out. I've got all the vacuum tubes, etc. I absolutely have the motor.

    I've taken more photos of the taper, electronics, contactors, tailstock, apron, etc. If anyone wants to see full size photos. Let me know.

    Well if you were in the Midwest Id take a look. Shipping would kill it I think.

    The lowball offers really got me down. I decided to take a couple of days and put it back together.
