I bought this old lathe a little while back. According to the owner it sat for over 30 years in this old barn in Northwest Michigan where l picked it up. Also came with 2 4 jaw chucks and a small 3 jaw along w old school lantern tool post and original carbide tool holders. It took a while but l was able to nicely take all the paint off with my ultrasonic cleaner. Some Tractor Supply Ferguson gray paint re wick for the spindle oilers and roller bearing upgrade.Also made special plate for the motor wheel and bridge to sit on along w modern belt.Easy belt pulley speed change w simple pull of the handle(handle from old craftsman mower)lol Also weight of the plate and motor in rear is a tensioner.It cuts and holds tolerances like a champ.
Some pics to enjoy for you gearheads.
