    Has anybody ever heard of a lathe twisting its entire bed into a pretzel? that pic got me wondering what would happen if your tool holder was all the way back and you were turning a crazy ass long peice and it "caught" and bit in more while in low gear or perhaps the momentum of high gear would push it over the edge? its had to have happened, maybe one of those things that happens all the time and people just dont talk about it

      From what he tells us about the shop, where do you suppose he'd
      put it? :-)

        I've seen it, it's true.
        Not enough room to swing a lilliputian cat, and you have to plan a route through the machinery to avoid the woodburner that'll singe your eyebrows off at 5 paces

            $18k for a 28" swing lathe?

            Heck, 2 years ago, I coulda pointed Sir John towards this monster:


            4 feet of swing, 30 feet between centers. All for the low, low price of $8k. Of course, it would probably cost him double that to have it shipped from Scranton to England.

              A shop in town has an old beast like that that swings about 50"+ but is only 10' long its called "slimer" its driven by a hydrolic motor that runs on a ring gear on the back side of the chuck. being hydrolic driven its noisy as hell. The cool part is with hydrolic it has a variable speed by way of flow control.

              Its a good machine for boring 4 foot 500LB fan rotors or making little $15,000 broze bearings.

                  Use for Lathe

                  Perhaps Sir John could use the lathe in the first post to make parts for watches!

                  Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!

                  Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
