I shudder when I think of the chain damage being done to the ways of that machine.

If I bought that, I would have to get rid of my BIG lathe.

Then you'd be forced to build bigger locomotives!

Precision surfaces or not whoever chained that machine down doesn't know a thing about steel on steel friction. But you should automaticaly protect any surface from chain damage if your trying to do a decent job. No support under the headstock end? Where's the original headstock support for that end? One bad deep pothole while transporting it could quickly get you a short bed lathe. Not a hope I'd haul that machine around the block with the way it's secured. Still a fairly small lathe tho. We had one a bit bigger at the first mine I worked at. The headstock looks a lot like it might be a Monarch? Running a search on Youtube for Super Lathe will pull up an older corporate sales pitch for a pretty impressive roll lathe. Think the original video was possibly done in the late 1980's - early 1990's. It has some fairly inovative features that would only be possible when the machines cost is a lot less important than it's performance.

Correction, late 1950's - early 1960s for that super lathe video.

It's probably on the way to the scrapyard. Wait until you see it dumped upside-down on top of a pile of rusty screw machines.
