    Big solid machine. Continental had one when I worked there. It was about a 50" swing. The foundation was three or four feet deep.

    weipert was the Mercedes or Rolls of the heavy lathes.
    early '70 Weipert was bought by Voest Alpine in Linz, Austria.
    Voest Alpine is a steel mill, who made their own lathes.
    later on the lathe factory ofsVoest turned in to WFL Mill Turn, which is still de Rolls Royce of the turning-milling machines.
    We have a WFL M65 in our company, ran in 5 years over 24000 hours and still machines under "lights out" conditions within 15 µm. tolerances.
    now back to Weipert. At this moment I don't a lathe of this dimensions, otherwise it would high on my list, just as VDF Boehringer or Heidenreich & Harbeck.

    I don't think Weiperts compare to VDFs(H&HH,Boehringer,Wholenberg etc.)They are more along the lines of Meuser or Martin.Good lathes but not great Lathes.
