If you go to the lathes.uk site, click archive @ top of page.
Combination machines are half way down the 3rd column.
Take a look at the Adcock & Shipley page. That IS the ultimate
3 in 1 machine.
As for the making of 1 or a reproduction you might look at the
Arbor page while you are there. That is a more modern version
of the Dalton. I saw one in Vancouver,BC back in 1991.
Very nice looking machine, with many features and a very
unusual method of construction.
KAR was bringing them from Italy. They were being sold off
at huge discount because of closing dealerships.
Not sure if they're still being made. But there are some over
here in Canada and maybe the US?
Yes, those are both nice looking machines, the Adcock is a giant beast! More of an industrial multi-purpose machine. I like the picture with the three guys in lab coats working on it!

Got an email from ShopmasterUSA today, the MillTurn is on sale for $1000 off but still $500 more than the pre-tariff price. I hate international politics...
