    Ignoring the silly price, what is it? I like the line shaft but don't think Atlas made anything that big since they only started making lathes in the 20's.

    I like the line shafting though.

      It is a "real antique". They did not use the key word vintage just antique. It really is worth the money for a "real antique".

        Not worth 10% of the price,but I think that is along the lines of a "heavy duty" Atlas. A friend had one years ago. It was probably from the 40's or 50's. It had a V way bed,and was of good,solid construction,with a thick bed. Trouble was,it still had the same spindle as the ordinary 10" or 12" Atlas lathes. 1 1/2"-8 thd. nose,with about a 3/4" bore through it. Since he was doing gunsmith work,he had to trade it off for a larger spindle bore lathe. Sold it to a blacksmith.

        Not a bad lathe,though,otherwise. I had a 12" Atlas/Sears lathe for my first lathe. It was terrible.
