    I recently got an older monarch as well, and the previous owner has no idea what model number. The ebay listing with a couple of pictures is here: Monarch Engine Lathe 20" x 42" with taper attachment | eBay.

    I checked the lathe ways, and found a lot number stamped in, along with inspection information. The lot # is B2375. Unlike the picture in the PDF in reply #3, the serial number is parallel to the vee, instead of perpendicular, and doesn't have a machine number.

    Anyone have any ideas what model of lathe this is?

    B suggests 18" or 20" and 2375 says 1929. Such designations are left over from the Model A (14 and 16") cone head era - before later and more familiar designations became the norm

    VM has this from October 1928 - top speed is 311, and it has a 3 1/2 - 4 threaded spindle nose - not something you will find for sale when shopping for more spindle tooling or back plates for a differing chuck (and since your machine is from the next year it may instead have their proprietary flanged spindle nose - which is equally odd ball)

    I have recently acquired a churchill redman c12 lathe. But its identical to the monarch c12 machine. I am not sure if it's a monarch. 20191010_164217.jpg
