Hi all,

I have been reading this group for a little while and have learned a great deal. I now have a question.

Does anyone know anything about HES Lathes? I see one on EBay and it has me curious. Any information would be appreciated.

I have been out of the country for a few weeks and one of those lathes came in to the shop to be rebuilt. haven't started on it yet but it looks like the shippers finished it off. What do you want to know about one?
This will be the first one I worked on but will probably take it down to a bare casting.

I just got back into town myself. There was one for sale on ebay, and was just wondering if anyone had any expierence with one. That ship has now sailed. Anything you find of interest during your rebuild would be appreciated, in case the subject comes up again.
