This deserves a hearty "you suck." I have been lamenting my need for a
lathe, and the lack of budget to get what I need. To get a Bridgeport would
be, well, "you suck"
Got a milling machine lined up yet?
Are you gonna put a mobile base on it so you can roll it back out of
the way when you aren't using it?
Just had a woodworm screw made by a friend who has FOUR of these
suckers. The largest is about 14 feet long. I asked him if these
were the last four that weren't shipped to China.
Hope you have a lot of fun with it.
Not sure if it will have wheels. It ways over 350lbs and I have not
added stuff to it, like a 4 jaw chuck, collets, tooling.
I may use the new flipper type workbench wheels that Rockler
(overpriced) and peachtree sell. ( bought a set from Peachtree for $40
and use them on my dresser workbench.
Well done! I have a nice Sheldon about that size or larger.
Dad and I bought it together at the hardware store in Sacramento Ca.
along in '52. Chrome ways, and in great shape. Nice to make tools
with! Even tools for my wood lathe.
