    There is a LOT of stuff in that basement! That drill looks great from here, and as someone stated, the oven is cool... if you ever wander into knifemaking, you will certainly appreciate it.

    That's one heck of a find! That version is the 11.25" swing model. With the long bed and with the cabinet it's going to be close to 2,000lbs. I have a 13" Sheldon with the long bed and it's much heavier than I expected. Sheldon lathes were considered the smallest of the true commercial lathes and the biggest of the homeowner lathes and were often favored by gunsmiths.

    A 10" Sheldon is far heavier than something like a South Bend Heavy 10...not really in the same ballpark.

    I paid $1K for mine, drove three hours each way to get it and felt like I stole it! The seller listed it on FB Marketplace and I was lucky enough to be the first to contact him and set up a time to get it the next morning. He said he had a half dozen people trying to get him to sell it before I got there, so I'm pretty sure the price was more than fair. Yours has a lot more tooling than mine....makes a big difference.
