Comments:
I picked this lathe up on Craig's List in Prescott, Arizona. It belonged to the seller's grandfather. He was moving and could not take the lathe to his new location. It was in need of a good tune-up and paint job although it was usable in the as found condition. The motor is a vintage Craftsman.
