Monarch is my choice for a lathe. Been looking & dreaming. Found 1 not far away & a decent size. It doesn't have the taper attachment though. Is that going to be something I just have to make? I've never seen the taper attachment sold separately.

Also, any idea what a 24" swing with 72" center to center might weigh? 15HP motor. Seller, well, it runs isn't much help. Video soon or I pass.

Do you have any pictures? I'll guess 6000 lbs

Take the top off and check for broken gears if possible- is there a broken lever there just to the right of MONARCH?

No. That's an oil-level sight glass. There's another one lower down, to the right of the pair of levers on the left.

The lathe sold not long after this post. It was the wrong time for me, so I passed.

Hi Guys,

The Monarch lathes are solid industrial workhorses. From the pictures, that one looks very sorry for itself ! Not been looked after at all, it would make a good restoration project though.
