Monarch is a trusted name when it comes to metal lathes, having been around the block since 1909.
There is a range of different models available including the Monarch 10ee, the Trens SBL700, SBL 500 and SBL 300, each of them having their own advantages, often compared to the South Bend Heavy 10 in terms of their functionality.
Monarch lathes have a reputation and performance that will probably outlast your need for the machine, why you’ll find both new and used machines for sale, some of them having been in use for a significant amount of years, still going strong. These machines are proudly made in the US, so you know you’ll be supporting the American economy with your purchase also.
In fact, the 10EE was such a powerful machine and way ahead of any of its competitors when it was introduced that it kept being made up until the 1990s. Just because one of their machines may have been in use for 20 years, it does not mean it is ready to be retired yet, why these wonders are still cutting metal across the nation.
While they do carry a different price tag compared to some of the cheap metal lathes, you won’t find nearly of the same performance with those, so the question is – do you want something that will keep working, or are you looking for something you will have to replace?
Besides creating sturdy pieces of art, they also have impressive troubleshooting and otherwise field service to help you should you experience any problems with their products.
