While I do see myself going to get a lathe such as this in the future: I can't do this owner justice. It is a long way for me, but mostly my schedule will not allow such an adventure until next spring. Please comment on condition etc as I am as new to this as can be. Please feel free to go & rescue it from the scrapyard before it has to go!

I’ve got the time and truck but I just don’t have the room for it.

That would be a great chance for someone to have an excellent piece of heavy American metal. Only a few miles from its birthplace too in Ohio. I don't have room or would consider it

That large of a swing and length with a nice working taper attachment could make some nice signal cannons for 4th of July!

Wouldn't need to be a project lathe either. Connect it and use it forever as it is, decades from now your great great grandchildren use it or sell it for a profit.

And with delivery..

EDIT, AND threading capability
