    Today I picked up the Clausing-Colchester Mascot 1600 clone (perhaps a Turnmaster?) for which Michiganbuck and Teemfan93 shared links. It...

    Sachmanram and MichaelP:
    I am looking at panels offered by WNY Supply to go with a 15HP motor I picked up at the scrap yard today for $87. :) I see that WNY Supply sells a "Standard" panel and a...

    I understand that Summit is a re-seller, rather than a manufacturer.
  4. Unusual Summit Lathe - Does anyone know year?

    I found an ad for a 19 x 48 Summit lathe that has plastic knobs where most Summit lathes have metal knobs (see the round black knobs in the pictures). The knobs are consistent throughout the...

    Thanks. I saw that ad, and it IS interesting, but not quite interesting enough for me to transport it that far. :)

    My guess is that South Bend imported this model briefly, then discontinued it. Perhaps with pictures someone will know the manufacturer(?):

    Yes, that lathe (a Clausing Colchester clone, I think) is very interesting. Michiganbuck also shared a link to it in post #11. I am planning to travel through that area soon, so I'll try to stop...

    I needed to replace a simple plastic spur gear in our Roomba. Roomba did not have the replacement part. I couldn't find the right size gear elsewhere. I was going to model it in Rhino (which would...

    Thanks. I'm not turning up anything similar on google, so, if you will let me know a few more details, I may be interested.
  10. Thanks. I don't know much about Monarchs (except...

    Thanks. I don't know much about Monarchs (except that they are highly regarded). I think most of those I have noticed in ads have had under 2" spindle bores, so I haven't paid much attention. Do...

    I have never liked moving things with dollies. There are numerous ways it can go wrong. There may have been another issue right before the dolly collapsed. How many dollies did you use? Were they...

    True. They often have rather narrow footprints too.

    If I need a rollback, I'll check back with you.

    I'm likely to end up with a lathe with a D1-6 spindle . . . but I'll hold out for a while. ...

    I'm still looking. (My current lathe will handle my needs in the near future.)

    My target has shifted a little. A ~15 x ~40 lathe with a D1-8 spindle, such as the Sharp 1640L, would allow me to...
  15. The truck payload capacity is similar to the...

    The truck payload capacity is similar to the crane, but, as I mentioned in the initial post, I could make two trips, if I must.

    I know this is a very old thread, but if you are interested in Ferro lathes, look for Ursus CMT lathes:

    True! (And thanks for sharing the links.) When I expressed interest in a 3" bore in my original post, I didn't mean that was a requirement; I meant that I could sacrifice some of my desired 60"...
  18. Thanks for your thoughts on my situation. Since...

    Thanks for your thoughts on my situation. Since my primary work is fabrication, and my use of the lathe is occasional, for specific projects, I will be content with a lathe that a full-time...

    I have a light-duty flatbed truck with a bed-mounted crane. The bed is 11'. The crane's maximum capacity is 4,000#. The maximum payload for the truck is around 3,500#, but I could probably push it...

    I agree. I've been looking for a few months. I have found specs. for a few lathes that meet my requirements, but I understand that patience may be required (and swing will be limited to get the...

    Thanks! I would really like to stick to a weight that I can move myself, just to give myself flexibility/convenience in the future.



    I understand that there are some sacrifices with many of the...
  22. WTB: ~15 x 60 Lathe,

    I need to step up from a 10 x 36 lathe and I've had several projects requiring 4'+ between centers, so I am unlikely to buy anything shorter than 60" between centers (but maybe with a 3"+ bore?). I...
