Purchased from a man who inherited it from his brother who unfortunately died young (40's), who had purchased it from a school. Came with inexpensive tools pictured, and an ash wood blank I can turn into a baseball bat. Color was turquoise and missing manufacturer and model/serial plates. 4 speed stepped pulleys. 1/2 HP Motor states Delta by Rockwell Manufacturing, so according to this site if motor is original then lathe is <=1973. Might be 1950s Model 1460 based on tailstock design and non-gap lathe bed, but headstock looks like model 46-525 from 1970s! Any help appreciated in determining model and year! Pic is after my refurb/repaint (likely lead paint I removed) by me. Everything works great, quiet motor, just will change v-belt.
