  • 11" Logan Lathe

    Left at 6:30AM, drove almost 100 miles each way, passed 50+ Amish buggies & picked up a Logan 11" lathe with a Buck Tru-Adjust 3 jaw, a 5C collet chuck & the rest shown. I really like the cabinet & the thru hole is about 1-3/8", I really think this will make a nice little brother to the Pacemaker. I have $750+$30 fuel. Fun ride!

    Image isn't a thumbnail, that's how big it really is, but it looks good in the miniature pic....

    $750 is pretty good for a decent 11", especially with a 5C setup.

    Do you have the hardened bed?

      Re: Passed 50 amish buggies:

      The least you could have done is slipped into the Amish church service for an hour on a sunday morning!!
      P.S. -remember the Amish have machine shops too! Lol

      Nice find !!

        Please explain why you needed another piece of equipment. Your shop is going to become so heavy it will cause a localized distortion in the gravity field resulting in a black hole forming.

            I think its because I poached my 14 X 30 Logan from his back yard.

              I have an Atlas 6" & 10", a SB, a D6000E Wabeco, a Prazi with a mill, & an Optimum but have never had or used a Logan & I really like it & from what I read the 11" & up share the same heastock, bearings, etc so this is a beefy lathe for it's size. When the owner said he used 5C collets I knew it was an 11" not a 10". Where else (besides maybe a 10EE) can you find an 11" swing with a 1-3/8" thru hole & the quality beats most in that size IMHO. And I think the price was right!

              PS Try the pic in #5, it's working now.

                That 10inch Atlas must be nasty on the back to run with it sitting on the floor.

                You REALLY need a nice Atlas leg set for it!! Lol

                      The 11" uses the same basic bed as the 10", so really, anything at 10" or above is about the same quality. I have 11" parts that fit my 10". And, in fact, the difference in swing between a 10" and an 11" is about a half inch..... the 10" swings just under 10.5", the 11" swings 11.06", per Scott Logan.

                      I believe the larger machines use a different bed of the same design.

                      The big difference from 10" to 11" is the big thru-hole, availability of modern spindle noses instead of threaded, availability of hardened bed, and the pretty much standard use of the QCB and the "automatic" apron, with feather key pickoff for turning feed instead of halfnuts only as with the 10" change gear units. I do not recall if the 10" QCB units use the "automatic" apron.

                          That's really rich coming from the owner of a Pacemaker.

                            Nothing there that i contradicted, or the reverse......

                            headstock is obviously different for different swings, but the bearing setup is similar, as is the newer 10" setup AFAIK.... mine has teh old double-row, to which I added a preload setup, since the double-row bearing was not internally preloaded as it should have been. Was supposed to be a zero to negative clearance, but seems more like a C3.... clearly not happening for a lathe.
