A good while ago I decided that I needed a bigger lathe ( I already had a Harrison M300), and stumbled upon this M350 at a decent price. After going to look at it, I knew the bed was worn out, there was some noise from the headstock, but not too bad I thought, and the rotary speed selector seemed to be doing random things. No big deal, I thought. So I bought it. Here it is when I went to collect it. The eagle eyed among us will notice that the cross slide hand wheel is not the correct one. The seller had arranged to get it loaded onto my trailer, then I headed up the road back to sunny Scotland. Once home I had to leave it outside overnight on the trailer, so lashed it all with WD40 and went to bed as it was gone 11pm. The next day I used this almighty engine hoist to get the lathe off the trailer. It's a bloody beast of a thing and a bit cumbersome but I'm glad I had it. My neighbour appeared and gave me a hand get it inside and into it's final resting place.
