Default Warner & Swasey #4?

Found one local for 500 in good condition with "some" tooling. I know it's a turret lathe but could I put a live center on one of the tool ports? Am I wasting my time? Looks like an 18 inch swing.

Found this picture on eBay. It’s a big one!

Yes, you should be able to put a live center in one of the turrets. You may not have a lot of room to do turning on the end though.

If you have the room, go for it. Almost scrap price.
