Comments:
This was either bought in 1935 as part number 99PM303 or in 1936 as a 99PM2030. There are no tags on the lathe.

I acquired it as trade for some work, possibly from the son of the original owner. It was rusty, in pieces, and in unknown condition. Fortunately it was mostly there, albeit neglected. Now restored and in use, it is a great lathe.
