I currently have a Husky PC36 lathe, and i have been looking to upgrade to a better lathe. A neighbor bought a lathe a year ago but never set it up and now he says he would like to sell it. It is a Monarch 10EE with a 20" bed. It came with 3 phase but was ran on a hydraulic pump for several years due to no 3 phase availability. Manufacturer date is 1943. Seriously thinking about buying it and selling my current lathe. The Monarch is a far better lathe than I have now. Plan on taking off the hydraulic pump and using a VFD for power. Overall condition looks good to me. Comes with a 3 jaw chuck, no 4 jaw. Includes a steady rest, KD tool post, and has a taper attachment. One of my questions is will a 10hp VFD run the lathe OK? I plan on getting some pics tomorrow to post.
