    Default eBay I/M 10EE Constant Surface Speed?

    Monarch 10 EE Lathe Mfg 12-1985 SN # 53543 | eBay

    Price is a bit high...

    I know I've seen that control box before; is that a constant surface speed model? Mfg date is 1985 on the tag. Interesting lathe, being also inch/metric. No relation!

    Constant Surface Speed "used to be" hard to do.

    No longer. Any of solid state DC Drive, VFD, or servo drive, all it would need is a bit of fairly cheap PCB kinky-fuckery interfaced to one of a DRO's existing outputs.

    Not many 10EE or any other "manual" lathe even needs that, given the WORK that wanted it went-off to CNC critters ages ago.

    Could be a source of more pain than gain, the old version to mess with?

    What did Marion Michael Morrissey say?

    That looks like it was left out to "season" That has an electric feed like an HLV-H there is no feed shaft. That box up top is fraught with unobtanium?

    "Unobtanium" only if to be preserved "as built"

    Dead-cheap, "functionally", what with all the CNC salvage and part-outs floating about, used or brand-new. Plus the experience as has accumulated as to re-purposing so much of it.

    There's folks here on PM as could re-train that sumbich to make cawfee, feed the dog on a schedule, or knit boot-socks, they were of a mind to do.

    Or even turn "parts". In real metal.

    But only at "real" cost of acquisition, too!

    Go figure a Machinshitist would exhibit "common sense" as well as problem-solving skills?

    That is interesting, it has the controller of their wacky but deadly accurate chucker, interfaced with the Regenerative Drive. It an inch/metric, the third lever Feeds/threads is not there because its not needed.
    If one wants the ultimate Monarch 10ee electrical challenge, this is it.

    A person would be much better off to consider this lathe.

    "Consider" perhaps.

    Coupla things in the description seem odd. ISTR this is the same source had troubles trying to re-power a harsh blue painted 10EE with a BICL D510 that never got the usable RPM back up to factory spec.

    I want to offer $1500 on the rusty one with hopes of retro fitting my spare MG drive!

    Whadidyu dooo? Trade magic beanstalk seeds for an MG, hoping the MG would grow the rest of a 10EE from seed?

    Maybe they added the last zero on the price by accident. If it doesn't run, it's called a dead lathe.
    Also it's in Chula Vista. I would presume it was a Navy lathe that has been sitting in a un-enviromentally controlled building (if lucky). Then the "machinery dealer" bought their junk for scrap price (50 cents a lbs.).

    There are a fair number of flags on that lathe description that would make me look very carefully at it before purchase.

    The mention ELSR but there is no ELSR controls or hardware. If you don't have that it doesn'tmatter when the drive has, the lathe doesn't have ELSR

    It looks to be a Modular drive but the tailstock is from an earlier WiaD machine.

    Max spindle speed is listed as 3000-3500 RPM. Weird range, 10EEs were supplied as 2500 or 4000 rpm machines. Makes me suspect that the drive isn't working in a reduced field at the high end and so the HP is less than the original drive.

    Hello all, I am new to this group.

    I went and looked at this lathe. It is in very rough shape and it doesn't run. The fellow who owns the surplus house is a nice enough fellow but thinks he's sitting on a gold bar. He turned down what I thought was a pretty reasonable offer so I think he's prepared to sit on this a long while (years?).

    I took a quick look at the schematics. It has a feed motor in the apron and the outer knob of the selected concentric knob just sets the speed of the feed motor. The inner knob sets the spindle speed (independently)

    Its got about 10 years of grime on it but everything does seem to move.
