I have 1898 patent date 12"x6' Hendey engine lathe surplus to my needs. Don't get caught up on that bed length, it includes what is under the headstock, which is large. Actual between centers is something like 36".
It lead a rough life up until I bought it from a farmer I know, I fixed it up some and I broke it some learning to use it.
Current known issues: broken teeth on back gear, need to be brazed and filed. There is a "skip" in the carriage feed, probably a broken tooth somewhere in the apron. There are only enough gears for one "row" of the quick change, currently off the machine but if you are interested they can be thrown in. Same for the "drive-all" 4-speed gearbox to power the flat belt from a v-belt motor, and a quickchange toolpost.
According to lathes.co.uk it weighs about 3000-3500 lbs.
Currently stored outside, and has been for a year, I had it covered but a storm blew that off and I haven't bothered to fix it. I have brushed oil on the ways now and then.
I haven't called anyone to scrap it, and I had it on CL for a while but people only wanted the legs off of it.
Might make a good welding positioner/shaft welder, picket twister, spring winder, or with some work even a basic lathe for turning pins and bushings (mostly what I used it for).
Machine is in SE MA, not far from Woonsocket RI.
If you can use it, come and haul it away.
I will eventually have it hauled off for scrap, but I figured I'd give you guys a shot at it first.
