Comments:
I've been looking for a lathe like this for 20 years and finally found one in Maryland. It came back in the cargo area of two station wagons, after the promise of a truck fell through. It's pretty much complete, except for the lever that controls the indexing pin. I fabricated a replacement one until I can locate an OEM one. There wasn't much to do to it but clean it up and relube/oil the parts that I could get to. The PO had put in new bearings and belts. The second photo shows the lathe running, with 16 cents balanced on the bed. I was able to start/stop the lathe multiple times without the coins falling over. I've got the two guard-shields for this but I'm not using them. The lathe came out of a high school near Annapolis, MD.
