Default 1915 Lathe available

Here is an old machine shop that the new owners are scrapping out.
Lathe looking for a new home

It is a bit far for me to go. It is about the same age as one of my lathes and my mill.

It could be a Western GTG. I can see you heading across the border with an enraged platypus for a guard dog, because they won't let you bring a sidearm. The Sask boys would lay on a party for you.

I dragged my lathe, mill, grinder and two shapers farther!

The GNAP can tell you what it was like taking the R2 to Canadaigua. I'm not sure his back has recovered. A trans Canada trip would probably do both of us in. 4.6 days each way is just a bit much in a cab-over.

I can go pick this stuff up (for the new future owner((not me))) and host the western GTG in my pasture at a later date.
