LOL -- not trying to be condescending pugs, but I see all that great machinery and then I spot an HF manual tire changer. --- LOL   It looks a little out of place among all that high-end machinery "goodness"  :D :D :D

I have one as well, but in my shop it's more at home among other cheap HF tools/equipment.

This is our farm shop as well, I just kind of took it over but still have to leave the bay open for repairs. Though its too small for most of our farm stuff anymore, we keep talking about building a new shop but not sure how we're gonna swing it yet.

Pugs, was that first lathe picture of a Reed Prentice? We had a nice 16" swing with a shorter bed. Good machines.

Nice machine. They would look similar side by side.

Here is my baby mill. Atlas benchtop with stand. Unfortunately it is in storage as I have no place for it at my apartment.

I actually bought it at a yard sale about 5 years ago pretty cheap. It works, however the power feed gear box under the table (and driveshaft) was gone when I bought it. From what I've gathered the stand isn't that common. It definitely needs some TLC, I'm torn whether to keep or sell. I was a machinist for about 8 years, and I'd much rather have something larger and more capable, but I always thought it was a neat little machine.

Welcome -- that's a great little piece of machining history. I'd keep it -- simply because the stand makes it such a unique item. For small hobby work, these machines are absolutely fine.

When you want to discuss that machine holler at me. I have one of those myself. I would not say the stand is super rare, but many more of those machines are found without the stand, than are found with the machine. The more rare and costly attachments for that machine would include the index centers, the rotary table, the vise, and the most costly of all, the Marvin brand vertical head conversion attachment.

The value of the attachments far outweigh the value of the machine. I would consider the stand to be conservatively worth $200 or perhaps more depending on it's condition and how bad a purchaser wants the stand.

Finding parts for the machine is not very difficult so anything missing could be found and replaced. I think a lot depends on how much you already have in the machine. 

I noticed that you have a female threaded spindle chuck on that machine as well. Those chucks are also a bit costly as well.

Turn the Atlas into money and get what you want later when you have the space.


UB, all your pictures have gone missing.  Was it aliens?  It must have been aliens. ufox

Machine content - here's a nice Delta Rockwell shaper that I sold yesterday.  It's been replaced with an ugly, but larger Brodhead Garrett shaper.
