    I found this listing on craigslist, and I'm curious as to the model. I figured this would be a good place to start. Its not too far from me, and he's got a package deal with a bridgeport. Not sure I can put together the asking price, but time will tell. Any help would be appreciated, as I have zero knowledge of Monarchs, other than pictures.

    Looks like they'd get the job done. He said that he wouldn't separate, however, he didn't say that he wouldn't take less.

    Oh, an FYI, he should have used inches instead of feet.

    Aside from the 10EE I don't know my Monarchs well enough to identify by model on sight. I have seen this model before and I'm sure the swing is more than 11 inches. It's at least a nominal 12 inch swing with an actual swing of 14 1/2 inches.

    Looks like a 1950's 15.5" gap bed like this example from 1953:

    series 61 are like 14-18" swings depending, 7.5 or 10 hp motor. that lathe is about 5000 lbs of "not messing around".
    the mill has a dro... nice, tooling... nice, but its a bridgeport... heheh J/K. tables small, but i bet that doesn't stay around long. Worth a look over, almost all machines on craigslist are "mint/pristine/never used", but there has to be a reason why people are selling them.
