The Schaublin 120 VM

Due to the many inquiries I have received about the Schaublin 120VM, I have decided to do a post on it with photos and information. You can bid on this machine on the Repository page listed on the top menu.

The Schaublin 120VM

Dennis used this machine almost every day while working in his shop, but he kept it in absolutely perfect condition. The original machining marks are still visible on the bed. The center height of both the head stock and tail stock are spot on.

It is strange to think that this is the last year of Dennis Harmon’s workshop. It is such a privilege to be one of the last to ever step foot in it. Here is a photo of him not long before he died. I can’t help but wish he were here to ring in the new year. This evening I am going to raise a glass to Dennis.
