    Hi guys.
    This is my latest machine I acquired.

    Looks in very good condition. Like the Patina. Are you going to give it the full treatment or just a clean up?

    Transportation will be interesting.

    I am going to clean it. Possible scraping of the compound and carriage. A good oil and leave as is. The hiab company I am using are a bit concerned about where to rig the strops.

    @spencer 427 Nice one!! :thumbup: I wish I had the space available to me that you must have. Actually, perhaps not as I'd likely fill it with 'stuff'.....:ashamed: :laughing:

    What's the swing over bed [gap?]

    Nice looking beast, but moving it won’t be enjoyable!

    Can’t see where to strap at the headstock end.

    sling it under the bed to the left of the gap, just protect the leads screw though and take the motor off

    That was my thought. I was worried about stressing the swan neck with the weight of the headstock. The swan neck is just over 2 inches thick and has heavy bracing

    All of my lathes were sold by them. Must have been busy in the 40s and 50s

    Nice lathe. You planning on starting a museum?

    Nice old thing and the right make too, i like Harrisons a lot, used one at work for years and it was always reliable and quiet.

    Sometimes having the room can be a bad thing as I constantly on the hunt for stuff. I have got to put a temporary extension on my workshop to house another machine. But I saving that for another day.
