    There's a lathe on an upcoming auction. Any ideas what it mite be!!

    Ad says, monarch 24 in by 6 ft metal lathe 2&1/2 or 3 tons works good.

    If I can I will go tomorrow and see if it has been moved to the auction site yet. Won't be able to see it under power where it is being sold.
    Any ideas what model it would be?

    I'ff I look at it I'll post more details tomorrow.

    Thanks. Scruffy

    Scruffy: Could be a Model K. If it is it's a engine lathe. I've got the 13x30 size. Roger

    That's a big machine. Monarchs are great machines. If it seems to be in great shape, and the price is right, grab it! They just don't make beautiful robust machines like that anymore. Big...yep. Rigid...yep, and then some.:))

    Scruffy, I'd bet its a Monarch 10EE. Does it look like this 1942 10EE S/N 15680? Bill

    It's much bigger. The one he was looking at had a 24" swing.

    I think the "24" x 6 foot" in the ad is referring to the footprint, which is about the footprint of my 10EE. And 10EE's are 22.5" between centers. A monarch with a 24" swing is gonna be a lot bigger than 22" between centers. Just my thots. Bill

    The face plate on it was22 in diameter and at least 60 inches between centers.
    The base was 2 sections not 1 like the10ees. It made the 10e in the pic look small

    I've got a big mill. Sometimes my 820 Logan needs to be a little larger.so I've been watching for a larger lathe.

    Some 10EE had 5hp, but most had 3hp. A 10EE is 20" between centers.

    Just bought a 1942 10EE in Wisconsin and got it in my shop in California last week. It has a 3hp, she needs work. I am very excited about getting her up and running.

    Go to The Practical Machinest forum. They have a Monarch forum that has more knowledge than you can ever use.
