That would look good next to the late 40s Vernon mill I picked up last year. Nothing says love like a manual oiler lol.

Wow! That's a monster. A very nice lathe for sure. P&W made very fine machinery. I love the ultra-wide flat belt drive. That will transfer a considerable amount of torque. You could hog some serious material with that beast.

Kitty approves eh? :lol:

That slug weighs almost as much as the lathe!

Dragged home a mile of free 10/3 wire to hook it up. It's too cold to take working in the garage seriously, though.

How many friends did you have to buy 12 packs for to get that thing moved?! :lol:

Free 10/3 :banana: Free copper is never a bad thing.

That thing is great looking!

We recently sold one ( I don't know if it was the same model ) in an auction at my work for around $500... I don't know a thing about machining, but I was still tempted to bid.
