    Default Questions on Monarch 1307

    Actually a DS&G 1307. I have an opportunity to purchase one.

    What is the big draw to DS&G? I have read threads on them being a great lathe. But what makes them great?

    Being that Monarch makes great lathes and I read about DS&G being great. I realize Monarch as I have one, but I never had or used a DS&G.

    Any thoughts or insight would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks

    I have not run those machines, I looked one over many years ago, great attention to detail, said to be one of the finest lathes ever made.

    Google will find you lots of discussion about the 1307. Good lathes, yes, very. When new, anyway. Also durable, but still: "condition, condition," etc.

    Monarch - connected, for a while, at least - still has Monarch-Monarch parts and support, Sidney, Ohio, USA.

    Monarch-DS&G model? US? UK? Best to do more research.

    You could call or email Monarch Lathe and ask, as well.
