I'm estimating the weight around 10,000# my 16" weighs in around 6,000#+ .

What would I do with this damn IV in my arm that goes to 1/2" of my heart, diesl stop, antibiotic stop, blood draw stop, h*ll I'd never get there! But I hope to get released by next week, onlt problem from sittlng 24/7 with my foot up it will take a bit to get my stamina back. Better than dying like my 1/2 brother did last Thursday.:( If I'd have waited 1/2 a day longer I would have beat him they say. I didn;t tell Tony but when he left I made it inside, put the foot up & collapsed LOL! If I die I'll be the easiest man on earth to ID, 9 soes 28 head stitched, scars all over & fugly to boot!:p

My 10ee is less than a year newer and it has a serial number 4000 higher, they really were putting them out back then! (Monarchs are sequential, regardless of model)

I figured you did. Glad you made it back inside beforehand!

That's a monster for most of us. Not far from me, and would be fun to own but requires way more space than I have! I have come across several instances of this around here, there are a pretty limited number of people that can accommodate a machine that large among the hobbyist crowd. I'd suspect than most working shops that could make use of such a thing either already have one or can't be bothered with an older machine of unknown pedigree. Be a bit unfortunate to see it scrapped though.

I'd take if in a heartbeat if it wasn't worn out. Hope someone puts it to use besides the scapper.:(

Yea, it could not have been easier or smoother but I was beat. Hope I wasn't cranky, pain will do that.I'm usually a lot more fun, but I was happy the sun came out!

Having a pick line in the arm is no fun especially when your teaching welding, machining, etc. Had one when I was given MRSA by the hospital in Kearney, NE.

Get well soon.

Hmm ... 800 miles or about 16 hours one way ... at 10 gallons a mile that's about $670 in gas ... still a good price ... hmm ...

Won't someone go and rescue this machine so the rest of us can stop the mad thoughts and tortured sleep?

10 gallons a mile? What kind of monster truck is it? I bet the lathe is gone by now!

Good. I hope it went to a good home.

Flylo, my truck is a 1989 3/4 ton truck. It does about 14-16 on the highway with no load. With a load, it drops to about 10-12 mpg.

It appears this one is in much better condition. $8500 is still a good price for that big old hunk of iron.
