    Besides traveling on trailer, just moving it through shop, If you take the whole overarm off with the head you'll never tip over and face plant. I think its 4 bolts into the main column.

    I have a Monarch Series 61, so my answer is a Monarch Series 61 :D. Mine is a toolroom lathe, taper attachment, lead screw reverse. Just a very elegant lathe. One feature I like over the others...

    The main base of the Cincinnati pic looks like a plain OD grinder. But if you just right of grinding wheel, it looks like half the hinge is still on grinding head for an ID drop down attachment.

    True, some people remove the dc motors. And with vfd's used widely, there are, at face value, cheaper options. But I don't think they are getting the same spindle speed ranges either that the DC...

    I'd argue that a bit. :D Atleast as far as South Bend 16". Not as heavy as a Pacemaker 16", or a Monarch 16". But they have enough weight to be fairly rigid and smooth operating.

    Now all sorts of...

    There have been different configurations over it's history. One I saw at Swatkins shop appeared to have an AC motor turning a generator, which I assume powered the DC motor. An old thread showing a...

    I got the Sjogren 2A-D3 in. Threads are ok, and mechanism works. Its pretty crudy like it sat untouched for many years. So I'm thinking I'll have to tear it down and clean it one day. The rubber on...

    Well I think I have my 10ee color. I ran my recipe from the various Patrick Black paint threads, on the front side of my B & S surface grinder. In person, it just looks so great.

    Good point. My concern for both mounting positions was the lower height of mounting. Accidental knee or leg bumping switches on or off at inopportune times. I like higher power switch mounting.
