  1. Just thought it really fun to gawk at, for turning columns, big columns! Pretty cool I think. Here is the sales description: 1946 Pattern makers 20' lathe. (Yes TWENTY Feet!) This beautiful piece of Americana was originally ordered in 1946 built and shipped 5-22-1947 to MGM Pictures. Original 1946 purchase price?...........................$2912.00! 30" of swing over the bed and 92" Outboard. and 16 feet between centers. Head stock can be offset 10 degrees for turning tapered columns. Tool rest is gear driven to traverse the length of the lathe. 2 speed motor w/ 4 speed step pulley drive for 8 speeds 160-2520 Rpm. The original invoice states that this is a 2 speed 3 hp motor. (seams odd to me with the sheer size of the motor) 220 3 phase (motor data plate is under the motor which is 1 " off the floor. I know this thing is a beast, and while I hate to see it happen, if the bed was cut at the mid leg and split into two, this would be a really nice 10 ft lathe with the option bolt the extension back on for occasional longer turning needs.
  2. We picked this bench up at an estate auction and have been trying to research and gain any knowledge about the history behind this bench. We found it odd that it’s made by Oliver Machinery Co. There is no machine or serial number on the Oliver metal plaque, and can not find a number on the vise. Thanks in advance for any help!
