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.

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.
