    Great vids!! That monarch sure made some noise but I loved it when the carriage reversed direction.. And, I would have really liked a sound and video of that big Skoda making the cut. Thanks, JR

          Real big is when you see the operator sitting on the compound while the lathe is running and a mobile conveyor is removing the chips.

          Wished I had taken a photo back then. It was on my first job in production control at the plant in Manchester and the lathe seemed to be about 2 miles long to this rookie. It was machining the shaft for a 500MW steam turbine LP section. I'm sure it made ship gun barrels in a previous life.

          These videos sure bring back memories - thanks.

              Yep my favorite was the monarch model A for the noise. I love old machines that clank and rattle their way though their work!

              Thanks for the other videos. I like wasting time watching old equipment running!

                In the first Skoda video the guy mentions that the sleeve is turned, ground and polished. Do they have a gigantic toolpost grinder? Or do they transfer the part to a giant cylindrical grinder?

                  They probably use a long angle lathe file to finish it
