I recognise that garage door - I seem to remember someone on one of the Washington CL sites reselling lathes that always took pictures of them in front of that door.
Thank you for all your responses and info. After plotting out the trip it is more like 520 miles. Still going to call this evening and try to get as much info as possible. It really is burdensome to find a metal lathe in my area of the country. So very few for sale privately or at auction close. Even searching into Canada(only 20 miles from border). Finding that Canada has less available then south of border. Seems the only possibility for old iron is buying site unseen and rolling the dice.
they are common to see for sale here in Canada. most have come out of schools and have seen the utmost of abuse.. and they are large!!! usually you only see them on the auctions after a school has closed thoughKeep an eye out for used Standard Modern lathes. I believe the smallest one is 13" x 36" or perhaps 13" x 40"
Nice machines, Canadian made
There were 3-4 South Bend 9A's that went for ~$500 a few months ago on the bcauction site. I got one for 450 with almost zero wear.they are common to see for sale here in Canada. most have come out of schools and have seen the utmost of abuse.. and they are large!!! usually you only see them on the auctions after a school has closed though
