Your kid's getting a nice Xmas present! I'd certainly rather have that than some Harbor Freight machine.

Ah. Glad it is going to someone who will appreciate it. I had to force myself to stop watching the bidding just to keep it from maybe following me home - too big, too far to Ohio. Sigh.

Cool, a round dial 40's ee with the M/G set. Looks like all the covers are there too, which is good. They tend to crack and get lost as people abuse them through the years and are pretty near impossible to find.
Drop me a note if you need any docs. I have pretty much the same lathe in kit form right now (and unfortunately, it will stay that way for at least another year).
There's a Monarch forum on the Practical Machinist website that you'll probably want to check out.

"Pax Americana is a philosophy. Hardly an empire. Making sure other people play nice and dont kill each other (and us) off in job lots is hardly empire building, particularly when you give them self determination under "play nice" rules.
Think of it as having your older brother knock the shit out of you for torturing the cat." Gunner

That's what I get for going on vacation. :( Nice score. Just wish it was me. Lake Elmo isn't that far away.
Oh well. I know of another one around here that has been languishing. I should go ask the shop supervisor what it would take to free up their floor space. :). This is ammunition to low ball them.
Thanks
