Default Re: 1953 monarch lathe restoring

Don't be too sure - with that lathe Steve could make another one just like it.

I read that somewhere the lathe is the one machine tool that you must have if you want to make a machine shop - you can make all the other tools with a lathe but it's very hard to make a lathe without a lathe. Apparently you have to keep using your current lathe to make a better version until you cross a threshold.
