Gentlemen, I have officially repaired, restored, and sold the 1956 Monarch 10ee lathe I got from OxTools. Further, I have used the video I shot to pitch a television show to Adult Swim. I am so excited to share my sizzle reel for "The Mechanic" with my brothers and sisters at /r/Skookum.

Two years ago, you guys put my welder and /r/Skookum on the front page after it was lost by the US Postal Service. I had just started a new job, so this was particularly demoralizing.

A year later I had changed jobs again and acquired a 1956 Monarch 10ee after Tom Lipton (my supervisor at my current position) saw me browsing government surplus auctions for Monarch lathes. I had it for a year as life kept me from really kicking the restoration job into high-gear. Finally, just last January, I decided it was time to vacate my personal project shop of the last 15 years in a West Oakland DIY space after finding something horrible out about a friend.

I had a fire sale for all the machine tools I had been customizing and building except the lathe; it still needed paint and the tube-based speed control system was NOT fixed (I thought I fixed it in [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DV

Looking for large lathe recommendations

I apologize if this post isn’t allowed, but I searched through the wiki and previous posts but can’t seem to find an answer. I am looking at getting a new lathe and am having trouble finding one I can be sure about.

I turn almost exclusively baseball bats, so I need something with at least a 34” bed. The one I originally had in mind was a grizzly G0842 but saw a post saying that it was not a smart buy for various performance reasons. Then I thought about just a cheap central machinery 40” lathe and saw on the wiki that it both had issues, and was no longer in production.

All I have now is an old craftsman tube lathe that has really run its course and causes serious vibration when turning. Now when I google, I have trouble finding anything less than a thousand dollars, that meets the length I need. If anyone could point me in a decent direction I would be very appreciative.

First lathe, what do you think of the Colchester Master 6 1/2 lathe? Any experience, wise words?

I found a colchester master 6 1/2 lathe that I want to buy. Do you guys know anything about them? Any wisdom to share? I know how to use a lathe already, but Ive never used a Colchester and I dont know if they have any quirks or weak points. The lathe itself is in pretty good shape, the cross slide has seen better days but I think for my hobby type of projects it will be totally ok.

Drill Press or Lathe?

Anyone here have a drill press or lathe that might be willing to help me finish my form 1 can? I need to drill out the end cap. I've reached out to a couple of gun smiths in the area, and they're a bit apprehensive claiming they don't do that, or are super backed up. I could provide the drill bit, and am willing to pay you for your time in either a gift card or cash. It's an endcap that is already center punched but needs to be drilled out with a 17/64 in bit. Don't really want to use a hand drill, and unfortunately don't have a drill press due to apartment living.

Edit: ended up getting an offer to use one. Should be set.

Need help selecting a lathe for my father's 60th Birthday, and have no idea what I am looking for, Please Help.

So as the title says, I have no idea what I am looking for.

My father has started woodworking in the last few years. And in a recent conversation he mentioned that he would like a lathe. So my brother's and I would like to get him one for his 60th next month.

I have seen prices from $400.00 to nearly $4000.00. Some are obviously more than he will need. But I also don't want to get him something that potentially low quality, it is his 60th.

For usage, it would be predominately woodworking. But he has also expressed that he really wants to try stuff with epoxy resin. He is learning, but is also a heavy equipment technician, so isn't afraid of learning to use new machines.

So if anyone could offer advise, or a recommendation, or things to avoid, it would be greatly appreciated.

Our budget is between $1000-1,500 ideally. Thank you, for any information you can provide.

I just picked up this vintage Craftsman metal lathe and old 40s-ish drill press (Walker-Turner maybe?) for $100 each. Both work nice, need some servicing. Any help on identifying the models would be greatly appreciated. Thank you imgur.com/gallery/uMsmvsF

With great advice and wiki help I need opinions on a new lathe

I hope I’m no bogging down the sub with requests for help in a new lathe. But based on a previous post and some fantastic help from other redditors, I have landed on these three lathes as a new purchase. I am primarily buying a lathe + bed extension just to turn baseball bats, and I am looking to do so as cost-effectively as possible. The comet 2 only has 3/4 HP while the others have a full 1 HP, but is significantly cheaper. Person at Woodcraft was helpful but I wanted a few more opinions before I pull the trigger. Thank you guys so much.

Not super happy right now. I’ve owned the Laguna 12/16 for a few months and it’s really been a great lathe, until the forward/reverse switch broke and it stuck on reverse. Took Laguna 2 weeks to β€œovernight” me a switch and I had to do the maintenance myself.

What is this type of tooling called? (OC image) - I am trying to turn down a rigid tubing segment that is oversized, but cannot be placed on a lathe. I imagine an "internal drill bit" could do it, but I don't know what this type of tooling is called. Anyone have an idea? Similar to a die. Thanks!
