So guys, it looks like unless I regain my saneity, I'll soon be purchaseing a Sheldon KS lathe. It's about 7 hrs away from me, but local to my brother, so I GOT HIM TO CHECK IT OUT FOR ME. I looked on lathes.co.uk,,,n vintage machinery.org,,, but very little info there. Anybody have any more info,,, or experience with this model lathe. Pretty sure is an older lathe,,,possibly 30s or 40s... TKS

Yahoo groups has a lot of info on Sheldon lathes , if you can figure out how to navigate it.
There is a guy there that worked for Sheldon for a long time “John Knox very knowledgeable “
Our most knowledgeable Sheldon guy “Ken” doesn’t post much anymore, guessing there was a falling out. Bummer.
