Re: 27" South Bend TURN-NADO
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I believe the Turnados were from Taiwan. A couple of years ago I used a 17" in welding school beveling pipe coupons for practice and AWS certification tests when I was taking pipeline welding and seem to recall seeing Taiwan on the data plate. I was teasing the instructor about backing my trailer up to the door and rescuing the lathe from all the students' abuse. Also a vegetable oil refinery and packaging plant I used to work at btook delivery of a new 17" Turnado in the very late 70's or possibly very early 80's. I remember running power to it from the maintenance shop bus duct but don't remember exactly what year it was. I was an outside contractor at the plant from 1973 to 1999.
I think that does look like a 17" with riser blocks.

Resurrecting an old thread. I just acquired a surplus mobile military machine shop trailer just like the OP. Was purchased primarily for the trailer running gear and included generator.
