A few square feet of floor space is more precious than the clapped out POS that is just that little bit too good for scrap.

Sadly, a few months under those conditions can render a machine impractical for anything other than scrap.


I could tell stories.....

I applaud your vision and desire to save it.
The back up plan is to have it for decoration in the shop. But seeing I can get parts of it to move it could be of some use possibly. I wouldn't expect it to hold 10ths either. It appears to be from prior to 1920. Around that time Monarch changed the back ways on the lathe bed from the double V.

You will find enough ways to "decorate" the shop without having that POS taking up space. If you really like it that much take a nice artsy, high-contract black and white photo of it and hang it on the wall...

ORF, I might not be the sharpest tool in the shop at times. But IMO. I wouldn't waste time in trying to get it up and running.... or use it for Deco.

But there is the opportunity that there are some still good parts and pieces on it you would do better with it and your time to strip it... clean up the usable undamaged parts, like gears and tailstock spindle Etc. and those parts are sellable on eBay... and ya might make a good profit from it.
