    G'day all you Hercus 9 inch enthusiasts
    I'm new to using forums, so apologies if I stuff something up.
    I just wanted to throw my hat into the ring regarding Hercus 9-inch serial numbers;
    I have a model AR with serial No AR9443, and on my brother's farm we also have a model C with serial no C2287... Both were bought from previous owners who didn't know any of their history, so I have no idea of the ages of either of them, but would be glad to hear if anyone can tie them to year models.
    Lathe serial 002_A.jpgLathe serial 003_A.jpgHercus 1.jpg I don't have any pics of the model C except the serial number shot! sorry!

    I'd be interested to find a taper-turning attachment to suit this lathe if anyone knows of one for sale, and possibly a collet chuck arrangement!
    I don't always get time to check this site, so it could be days before I see any replies... (I check it at work if I get a few minutes... my internet at home is very slow)
    Cheers

    G'day,

    I have just done a deal on what appears to be a very well kept 260ATM, serial number 18921.

    Hopefully I will be picking up early next week so will be searching the forums for advice on lifting and transport.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    conggratulations sounds like a good buy
    lifting best way is to use soft lifting straps around the webbing in the bed be careful it doesnt put any pressure on things like lead screw etc

    Throw my hat in as well.

    I think 1970 serial numbers were 12917 thru 13471,
    so about the time Johnny Farnham was releasing "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head"
