Hello everyone, I just made an offer on this machine and will find out in the coming week if I get it, https://hgrinc.com/productDetail/Machine-Tools/Used-Monarch-Lathe/03160170002/ The machine is in Cleveland and I live in NOrth Canton Ohio I am completely new to machining and will need a lot of help. I really would like to find some one to maybe look at the machine with me, help me figure out what it needs ect. I don't have a big budget, but I decided I wanted a quality machine and one I wont outgrow. I am willing to take the time and put the work in to restore this war era machine,but, I dont know the procedures and also what is un-fixable. If they except my offer I feel that parts alone would be worth it but I dont want a 7000lb paperweight. Anyway thank you for looking and any advice or help you can offer.
