    Xavier

    That's pretty rare lathe. It looks to be mostly complete with the exception of the headstock accessories for threading, and the turret itself looks home made.

    As far as the spindle,...

    I can't comment on its condition, but It looks to...

    Nice little setup. Interesting to note, it looks like the headstock and tailstock are sitting on some kind of riser blocks.

    Just to clarify, since I didn't see it listed here, the Cataract Quick Change lathe was only available with a MT2 tailstock, but you never know Hardinge wasn't afraid to make something custom if you...

    If it was closer, as in A LOT closer since I am in California, I would pick it up, even though I don't have room. The shipping is a deal killer for me since it would most likely be $1200 to...

    I really have the itch for one of these, but I have a feeling they are pretty rare, even more so on the USA.

    I was thinking it would be pretty neat to make some patterns for casting up a copy of...

    Tom, the table looks great! I was wondering if the central t-slot is angled to accept the Hardinge/Cataract accessories? Again great job!

    I can't tell the condition of the lathe from the pictures, but it looks to be a pretty complete (atleast with everything you would normally need).

    It looks like a non-ball bearing 5c 9" lathe...

    Hello all,

    A couple months ago, I picked up a Cataract 57 headstock off of ebay for use on my little bench top mill, while inspecting the headstock I noticed the spindle was pretty loose, and...

    Hello Burton, Harold pointed me to this thread, because I have a mill a lot like yours, but mine is just an older version (its also the lathe version, with its own stand alone base, but same idea)

    This is the second lathe I have seen like this on ebay, the first one had the same style of bed, just shorter. The seller says wall mount, but I think it is just...

    David, thanks again for dealing with the parting out process, you helped out a few Quick Change lathe owners I am sure!

    I got my parts, and they arrived just fine. I have started cleaning up the...
