It does look out of place in the shop with the other museum machines. I think one is a 1949 South Bend 16" or 18" with a 6 or 8 foot bed and 5 additional lathes of various sizes all around that same era.

I have always liked the looks of those machines. I did not know that came in such a large machine.

It looks like they took the 17” and added 10” rising blocks.

That tailstock is a monster.

 

Oh yes, welcome to the group, Keith.
