Subject: RE: Best metal lathe


Hmmmm, the best metal lathe.................as a trained machinist the "best" and new do not go together for me. For a farm machine I would want a old Monarch, Big South Bend, American or something similar with a big swing and bed and alot of iron in it..........swinging a weird shaped piece to turn that isn't exactly balanced right needs iron in the machine, and I have yet to see a similar import with anywhere close to the same iron in it as the older American machines..........
