I believe I offered up my LeBlond for sale here last spring when I purchased a Monarch 61. I've been using the Monarch for several months, but only recently got the controls finished. Up 'til now it's been running on a rotary converter -- sure is nice not to have to listen to it anymore.
No expensive fixes were required. Meter units for the three lube systems, a couple bearings in the apron and tailstock, seals for the control levers and shafts, seals and bearings for the coolant pump, paint and painting supplies. It won't get carefully levelled 'til it's in a permanent spot, but even sitting on 3 riggers' skates the lathe turns true within a thou or so over several inches. Good enough for who it's for, as the old timers around here say.
Some before, during, and after pics.
