        Lord, that is a sweet deal. Looks like it has a leadscrew reverse as well. I like that style of T/A much better than the later leadscrew-pushers.

          That would be a nice lathe. I’m thinking he is a little off on the weight at 1200 pounds though, probably 2.5 times that.

            Is that really a firebox door on the left leg?

                Nope. That's the factory motor access door.
