Hello, I am currently running an Atlas 6x18 from the late 70's and really want to take the next step up.
I can pickup a Leblonde 10" Regal in great shape with allot of extras for next to nothing. I've tried to research it, but other than a couple posts on Practical Machinist group I haven't found much other than it is a rare lathe and there's not to much info on them. I searched this page and found nothing so I figured I'd ask if there is anyone out there with any support, knowledge, or general idea on this model.

I have seen that and read it several times. There's a couple posts at practical machinist that estimate there is only about ten known to exist in running condition in the US. The 10" ones seem to have disappeared after WWII.
