Default Cannon Lathe

Not sure if this needs to be in the classifieds or what, but thought someone might be interested. Went to look at a lathe for sale last week. It is an awesome machine, but way to big for me. I was looking to upgrade my current lathe, but this thing would cave my work shop floor in! (if it would even fit) It is a 1936 Monarch 16" W. It is in Fayetteville, NC. I have owners contact info if anyone is interested in following up.
I can imagine it would have no problem at all turning any scale or most full size cannon barrels.

Any idea what the center to center distance is?

Wish I had a place for something like that.

At the machine shop where I do most of my building, there's a 40" American Lathe with a 14' bed. It's a beast! You could build some seriously heavy full scale artillery on that lathe.


Oh, and the threading goes down to 0.5 tpi.

I don't often bare my soul, it's ugly and tends to frighten people.
