Ive got an opportunity to aquire a Clausing Colchester Mod 13..the square topped machine..I believe its also sold as a Harrison M300
Machine is incredibly low hours..they added a CNC attachment to the compound and used only that..so the ways are virtually unused/unworn and it probably has less than 500 hrs on the machine itself.
Old customer of mine, and they would like me to have it, so I have a definate "in"
Its completely different than my Clausing 1500 and I see mention of it as the perfect gunsmiths lathe on various message boards.
Anyone have any pluses and minuses of this lathe?
I have a Hardinge HLV-H as well, but its simply too small for gunsmithing of any serious nature.

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their? president.. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince".
