    Don't knock Pine-Sol until you've tried it. I cleaned an entire Logan lathe using it straight and heated. It did a good job and, because it was heated, the parts dried quickly.

    I've used Pine Sol for degreasing. It works pretty well, especially when heated. As I recall, the primary active ingredient is alcohol.

    I think $200 is low, but it depends how quick you want to sell it, and whether the buyer appreciates old things or just "needs a drill". It looks like a really nice drill.

    Lots of old American lathes have a slightly tapered thread on the spindle nose, so that the tooling tightens up as its screwed on. I don't believe that the corresponding back plate threads are...

    First one I've ever seen, as well. Love it. That arm casting is really cool.

    I have never owned one, but- as I recall- the ram is intended to be used in both the shaper and the slotter position.

    I have a similar "Simplex" crane by D. Round & Sons of Cleveland. No weight rating on it, and Round declined to give me one when I called them (no big surprise).

    I used to have a fairly modern...

    L&S and Gray are still occupied (though it may not be the same Gray plant as that which the article shows). Not sure about the others.

    I know what Myfords look like. This doesn't look like one. Compare, among many other small differences, the size and shape of the bed foot.

    This type of single-foot utility lathe was fairly common...

    The lathe doesn't look like any Myford I've ever seen. But it does look European/British.

    Some of the Cincinnati drill makers did that way-type column on some of their machines as well. I don't know what the perceived benefit was.

    Drop oilers can be added to any machine, and mean nothing with regards to speed. Old large swing lathes that only turn a couple hundred RPM came from the factory with drip oilers.

    Uh... what?

    It's an old lathe, probably European, that someone built a drive system for. Everything else looks original, including the L taper spindle.

    Seems that, if you know what type of...

    Its roughly the same size of the original motor, even if it's double the power. Should work fine.

    I wonder if they were cast in place. I have a very vague memory that says Monarch was a "budget" line for Prentiss... maybe they cut costs by casting-in the jaw inserts.

    Ohio's 36 inch "Super Dreadnaught" shapers were around 12,000 lbs. Some of that weight was in the form of a built-in jib crane for loading parts.

    I scrapped a No. 2 Marvel years ago, but I saved the vise parts, and would be happy to sell them for a reasonable price. Contact me if you buy this saw.
