    We will be happy to quote a price for buying it but you might get more elsewhere. I didn't mean to sound like i was putting you off.

    Do a google search for "gold refiners" and find one who will do a test for free. That shouldn't be too hard. We don't deal with gold alloys.

    Have a good weekend.


    Sorry, I don't have any pictures. I was never in the plant myself. Wish I had been.

    How big was that biggest lathe? In Westinghouse, our largest period was a 120 inch swing about 60 foot between centers, and a 180 inch swing, about 15 foot between centers.

    I'll have to look up some of the big machines on a Google.

    Have you looked at the "Huge engine looks like a sewing machine" thread? Look at those engine builders and see if you can find pics of the lathe needed to turn the cranks for them.
