This is the 3 ph power lathe I traded a Jet 1236 for. I was going to buy this Rockwell and sell the Jet. It had a busted traverse gear when I got it but for the price it was workable for a home shop.

The guy selling this Rockwell had never run a lathe but wanted one. He offered the trade of his 3 ph for my Jet that ran on 22Ov. Got this one running on a 3 phase converter last week.

I went to school to be a tool & die maker and worked as a machinist/pipe welder/turbine millwright for years. The most impressive lathe I ever saw was in Jacksonville, Fl. I had to travel to witness some critical machining on turbine components.

The vertical lathe with the 30 foot bed was nice but they had 1 lathe way in the back in it's own building. It was 177 inch swing (14 3/4 feet) and the bed was about 100 feet long. The operator rode the tool post. The access doors were embossed with the Nazi eagle. This machine was used to make *big* cannon barrels.

The Germans were way ahead in a lot of technology but put it to the wrong use. Mesta that specialized in huge steel equipment and built a 50,000 ton forging press, that was recently rebuilt for millions, made their own machine tools that were beyond huge. There's some pictures on the net of operators riding the tool post. Another great company that shut down. The forging presses were based on a couple of large presses confiscated from Germany after the end of WW II. Russia took the larger one.
