    Impressive, to say the least. Great to see a fine older piece being brought back into service. -Al

    rsmithsr,

    I don't know, but definitely more than what I paid for it. It's for rent, if you're interested

    We're in escrow on a new one. The new one is DEFINITELY not less than Jackie's new lathe.

    Back to having a house payment...

    Yes. We also converted it to a frequency drive system to stop and start it.

    Butch,

    Depends on where you're at. In my area, $500,000 is a starter home now. LA, Orange County, San Diego, etc., are pricey, and the bay area is ridiculous. But there are some gorgeous areas in the Sierra Nevada foothills that are far less.

    That puts it all in perspective I have a 14-40 lathe (40 inches), yours is XXX-40 (40 feet). Nice machine!!! If I could post pictures I would show me and my friend splitting my tractor wheels in his big Summit or is it Monarch? He has one of each. With the gap removed the tractor wheels fit with 1/8th to spare.

    My youngest Son and Family live in Lancaster and $1,000,000 is a nice house with space, but it ain't special. It is not a place I care about. If Chad and wife were able to find jobs as good as theirs, they would be in Texas in a minute.

    to Manitoba.......way cheaper.

    No poisonous snakes or insects, almost no flooding except in spring thaw depending on the amount of snow and the odd small tornado.

    Oh yah, you have no snow or -30 degree temps. Stay there.

    Ohh yeahhhh, I really miss those spring frost boils.... and mosquitos..... and 40 below......


    but BTST my daughter's best friend just married a guy from the midwest and they moved to Ironwood MI and bought a HOUSE in town on a lot a quarter mile from the lake........ bought and moved into a fixer-upper they could work on while living there..... they're warm, dry and comfortable, raising a baby, and the place is looking better all the time.......


    For $29,000.00


    "Downside?" When they get it all fixed up and looking new and fresh,


    It'll be worth less than a new pickup truck. Kinda' hard to "make money" in that housing market, but an awesome place to live.


    And it's pretty warm there in Ironwood, "Lake Effect" ensures that it rarely dips below -20F....30 below is considered mighty cold..... LOL

    Butch,

    I worked for LASD from 90-94. Back then, the Palmdale/Lancaster area was pretty much desolate. People were just starting to move out there because it was affordable. I was down there a couple of years ago and couldn't believe how populated it had become. Wish I would have bought some land out there all those years ago...

    Our new digs. Note the shop, and my attraction to the property should be readily apparent. But this will give you an idea of what your money can buy in my locale of the People's Republic of Kali...
