    Can anyone give me the weight of a 12 x 30 Hendey lathe built in 1945?

    thanks

    A 12 x 30 gearhead weighs about 3600 pounds. The bed is about
    800 pounds and the headstock about 550.

    I had to take mine apart since my celler has a wood stair along a wall.
    The bed and headstock came in a small window at ground level. The
    headstock needed a special skid because it has a gear sticking out
    the bottom. It was a one man job for me in 1986. Not now.

    I will leave a set of instructions for my executors when that time
    comes. Charlie

    If you go to this thread on PM, there is a link to a scan of a 1940 Hendey operators manual. It covers both cone head and gear head, I don't know if it gives the weights. http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb...=hendey+weight

    I have a 14X30 Hendey(early 50s: 18 speed), but I don't know exactly how much it weighs. I would guess somewhere between 4K & 5K lbs.

    Sorry, I didn't read carefully enough.
