I (accidentally) picked up a large wood lathe at an auction a few months back. I bid on a drill press and did not know that it was coupled with a second lot that had the lathe.
I would like to know if there is any use for it in the wooden boat community. Its a unique tool built in-house at the paper mill that was being auctioned off and I would rather not scrap it. It has a 10' I-beam bed, a couple tool rests, and is belt driven by a ~7hp 3-phase motor. Personally I think the motor is a bit overkill, just one the mill had on hand when they built it.
Any info on possible usefulness would be great. I have pics if that would be helpful, I'd just need to resize them.
