    Thanks for the warning, and the story.

    Sadly, also a reminder that many very old machines, having suffered decades more wear than they were ever meant to in commercial use, and various makeshift...

    Thanks very much John. I'll gratefully take your advice, which pretty much puts the sledgehammer to this experiment.

    Thanks also to RobF and lucky7 and the other guys for their input - it's been...

    Cast Iron was the Styrofoam of the 1890s :) God Save The Queen!

    Thanks again lucky. Geez, this is starting to sound like I'm buying a 1960s Jag! I think I'd best take your advice and wait until I can get hands-on. Or get something more practical.

    Those Mori Seikis near me are, unfortunately, mostly 17" machines that weigh ~3500 lbs. Even the Mori 15's are extremely heavy.

    You mean Peter's Sag 12? Price as it sits is over 5000 US plus he said 1500 euros and whatever o'seas shipping red-tape horrors await. And it's a 440V Metric machine.
    So I thought I'd look at...
  9. What do you think of the freight charges?...

    What do you think of the freight charges? 'U-Ship'. I got three quotes so far, from just under $1800 to just over $2200+ From DE to CA, liftgate both ends, to and from residential.

    Thanks thermite.

    It also has the (optional) induction-hardened ways - original sticker still intact.
  11. That's a good start, then -- thanks John!

    That's a good start, then -- thanks John!
  12. Older Clausing-Colchester vs similar size LeBlonde or Cincinnati?

    I'm looking at a 1965 13 x 36" Clausing Colchester, user-owned and cared-for, ways said to be in excellent shape, with 3J, 4J, steady, and QCTP setup included. Price $3200 plus tax, plus...
