This is too good not to post. If I had room and 3 phase power I would be all over this Two Monarch 10EE Metal Lathes for $3K, here is a link to the post.

Bargain for sure. Even if they were total scrappers there's profit in them. Nice Hardinge/Sjogren chuck on one.

I see one has a missing tailstock..is that because it was intended to be used as a turret machine. I wonder if the price is $3000 for both or $3000 for each.

I'd give body-parts for that turret.

HAHA thanks for the link I think I'll contact him! MUAHAHAHAHAHA

Back in 2009 while I was driving a old friend around, working on his Bucket List, we went a fellow's place over in Brownsville, Oregon and he had a Monarch lathe that I fell in love with. I don't know if it was a 10EE or how old it was, I said if I ever found one I could afford, it would buy. well things have changed. Here is a photo of the one I fell in love with. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v671/lugnut/05-14-09_1114_zpsef084de7.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/lugnut/media/05-14-09_1114_zpsef084de7.jpg.html)

OK 914Wilhelm somewhere between Portlandia and Salvation, did you buy them? and did you get them both for 3K ? if you did, good on you.

$3ooo. ,that works out to about .50 a lbs.

The second lathe has a little different headstock covers than most EEs.

A VFD should fix the 3 phase problem.

Lugnut what a great looking early EE, what year is it? Did you rebuild it?

Hal, that blue beauty is not mine, it belongs to a fellow over in Brownsville, OR. When I posted that I saw a good deal on a couple of them, I remembered that I had a photo of the blue beauty and posted it. I wish it was mine.

Those EE's are one of the only lathes you could paint just about any color and it would still looks good. I have seen them in some colors that would make other lathes absolutely hideous but it still looks good on them.
