I was at an estate sale today and there were two huge flat belt machines that are destined for the scrapper if not sold tomorrow. One is a Kempsmith #2 Plain Horizontal mill and the second is a very nice looking but grungy Walcott lathe. I did not have time to find a model number but it is as long as my armspan, which is about 6 feet. I took a quick look on Vintage Machinery and it may be 15" by 6 feet. Includes 4 jaw, steady rest, tailstock and taper attachment. Double v ways. $600 for the lathe and $500 for mill. Tomorrow is 50% day. I bought a Keller powered hack saw for $20. I may go back tomorrow and cannibalize usable parts from the lathe that I can carry. Call me if interested and I can possibly help in some way. Here is the link to the sale.
