    Camlock is the commonest style for manual lathes, there are a number of sizes to cover pretty much everything.

      Clausing 5900 is 12x36, L00, and can be had in single phase 240v. (5917 is 240v single phase, no clutch/brake, iirc)

        Colchester Chipmaster or it's american branded cousin Harrison 10AA. 11x24 with a D1-3 A well retrospected lathe just a step below a HLV-H and a 10EE

          Standard modern 10" Utilathe seems like a great choice. Gear head, camlock. I saw a very compact 11" meant for a ship, it had the motor on the head and twice the normal number of gears. Was a bench mount though, no legs. I can't search up the auction anymore though.

            I have a Clausing 5900 12x36, hardened bed, L00 spindle, 1 3/8" spindle bore and MT 4 1/2 spindle taper. It has 3 phase motor, but I love it, don't shy away from 3 phase. With a static phase convertor to start a 3 phase slave motor( then cut out static converter) you have an affordable rotary convertor that will "instant reverse". The 1 3/8" spindle bore is large enough for 5c collets, the MT 4 1/2 spindle taper is a little bit of a problem, but can be overcome. Be sure to get the steady rest, they are hard to find by themselves.

              I'd love a Monarch 16 CK. Three phase is ALWAYS preferable in my book.

                How about this? (notice the price...)

                  That'll do, if it's actually a 14.5" lathe. I also need a bigger workshop. No way that lathe only weighs 3000 lbs. Nor do I need a 3rd 12" lathe.

                    I knew a few guys yrs ago that would lease warehouse space on the cheap and divide it -- front end was their home, shop in back. Of course it was only 30 cents/sqf back then.... plus utils

                      that Monark for $1300 is tempting, except, how do you move it? how do you put it in a regular house garage?
                      how would you tell the wife?

                        I've moved a bigger lathe with just an engine hoist, and plumbing pipe gantry. Not recommended though. As for the wife, that's a bit trickier.

                          She probably wouldn't like being hooked up the engine hoist

                            sell some other machines to make space, then rent a fork lift EDIT its only 3,000 lbs, just get a decent pallet jack for $300.

                              My 10EE is 3000lbs, this CK is a much larger lathe, probably 4500 to 5000 lbs

                                Maybe, the ad says 3050. At any rate, they do make pallet jacks to 5k, and they're a lot cheaper than a forklift
