Re: Our “New” Lathe Arrived last Week
That is one awesome lathe. The cost of transporting the 2 lathes is likely considerable. Was there no local market for the old one in Houston?
I mention the cost because I had a small home shop that I moved from Chicago to Shreveport and the cost of the moving was likely more than the value of the machines. Sold the old 16 inch South Bend in Shreveport before moving here to Tucson. Moving those machines twice was not going to happen.
The used machinery market is a lot like the used car market. The one you have is not worth much, but the one you want is a very desirable item
The old LeBlond NR paid for its self many times over. But it was bulky, not real user friendly for the kind of work we do now, and not long enough. In short, we could make better use of the space it was taking up.
We also have a 32’ Lehman, a 26’ Kingston, and a 28’ LeBlond, all in great condition. Plus a myriad of all other machines, ie mills, slotters, saws, drill presses, welders, cranes, etc that it takes to perform the work we do.
Here is a picture of our large radial drill press. I can post some more pics if anyone is interested......
'67 Chevelle Malibu, Catalina Blue, 540 inch Rat, Air Flow Reasearch 290 CNC Heads heads, Custom Hyd Roller, .675 lift, 234, 244 at .050, Lemons Headers, Holley Multiport Fuel Injection, TCI 6X 6Speed Automatic, 12 bolt Posi Eaton TruTrac, 3:31 Richmond Gears, front and rear power disc brakes, Global West Suspension, etc.
