If any one has time, would you go to eBay. Equipment specific tooling go to lathes.

Their are 2 monarchs at the same place in Parkersburg. Wva. Starting bid is 500.00 on each one. I have the equipment to bring them home. I'm just looking for something larger tha my 2. 820 Logan's. And the old sb I drug home.
If anyone can tell me a little about them it would be much appreciated.

Thanks ron

Sorry I can't help but it's ok to post the links to the ebay auctions you are looking for info about (we just don't allow advertising of sales, like if you were to post items for sales). It may make it easier for those who do have the knowledge about those models to help.

Yep,give me some links.

In general, all monarchs are super rigid machines. The older ones take up a lot of floor space for the size of the work envelope. Can be a problem if space is tight in your shop. Also take a look at top RPM on older units, can be pretty low by today's standards.

Their newer stuff can't be beat. At $500, likely NOT one of those.
