Deckel clone?,  see www.lathes, mine is a Promskja (SP.?), really solid with a knee and a couple of inches of quill feed. Vertical head max speed 2800 RPM, loads of accessories, high speed head 8000 RPM.

Re lowering the machine into the cellar.

I doubt an engine hoist will be at all suitable. It is for short, straight lifts central with its frame, and extending its booms to its limit drastically cuts both safe working load and stability. They are not designed for, so are not suitable for, angled pulls even in line with the boom, as your situation is likely to create.

Even with the machine stripped (as I had to do, to put my Myford VMC into the shed) the body of the thing will be a substantial lump especially if full height and not "bench top" as my Myford pretends.

Another point to watch - it nearly caught me as my shed is not very high inside - if the machine you choose is anything like mine, with cone-pulleys and belts under a hinged cover on its top, the full height of the machine with the belt-guard open is significantly greater than with it closed.

To erect my machine-tools (the Myford mill and a Harrison L5 lathe) I made a fairly substantial framework of scaffolding to take a chain-hoist, and bought proper lifting-slings and shackles rather than risk tying ropes and things.

Re: Milling machine options for bike work

Strange that this post gets a replay after so long. £ years ago or more. How things have changed. I have my own house now and built a 10m x 4m workshop with great access and loads of headroom.. So have sold my old machines and bought a variable speed bridgeport clone and an nice geared head 1440 lathe. And despite he fact they weigh 4 times more than the machines i had to get into the cellar, these just wheeled into the new workshop on a pallet truck.  Too easy if you ask me!
