    I bet that southbend will clean up nicely, it will fill the need for a small lathe nicely. I just hope the spindle and bearings in headstock are not rusted...

      I've seen worse for sale at tool dealers. If nothing else make Elninio come and get it.

          I'd love to have it here to replace my hu flung pu special. I'd also like to have that cast iron lead melting pot.

            That's a nice find. I'd find a workbench for that right away. I see it all painted up and running. It really doesn't look like it has been out very long. It won't look that good if left out though. Grab it!

              Man, you fellers sure didn't feel the same way when I posted a pic of this monster a year or so ago.

                Doc,
                I see a lump of coal in the rough.

                  Sorry Doc,
                  It ain't a Southbend.
                  Some of us just have a soft spot in our hearts (and wallets) for those old Southbends.

                    I must have missed that one Doc. It sure has POTENTIAL .
                    If I was to drag that home it would potentially be the straw that broke the camels back; I would be home alone real quick

                      Doc.....

                      I think you just have a better camera.....got the color of that "red, red, rust" too clearly....maybe there is a reggae song in there somewhere.

                        Man, That looks like it has a lot of potential. Doesn't look like it's been outside long.
