Could someone tell me what the pinkish coating is on the lathe? Is it a type body putty?

I think its just a autobody glazing compound used after the body putty as in a car project to fill in the minor pits. Here is a good pic of it on his hands and there are two tubes of it in another pic but i can't read the writing...Bob

Wow, that Monarch Lathe is a work of art! Absolutely beautiful! Mr Lindsay sure did a nice job. I've run one of those Monarchs, and they are as nice to use as they are to look at.

Very nice machine and a great job on the restoration of the finish.

Old thread I know but I just ran across it.

Regards.
