I bought this in October, 2017, in Auckland, New Zealand. It's currently pottering in Auckland until I can get 'economical' transport to Wellington (425 miles). Even then it will reside in the rathole for some time.

I don't know the history of the machine, but the motor is not original, and there are indications that it was originally flat belt driven. I believe it was manufactured by Wadkin & Co. (prior to Wadkin Ltd. - i.e. pre~1936) This is the little brother to the more common Wadkin LQ, at half the weight (7 cwt) and slightly smaller capacity (e.g it has a 20" throat vrs 21" on the LQ)

Comments: The spindle rises and falls; the table has vertical, lateral and longitudinal movement, as well as it can be rotated 45 degrees each way.
