Comments:
I purchased this from a friend as it was moved to an unheated garage and starting to get some rust so it needed rescued. Personally, I just needed a lathe to do some work but later found out that it is a rather nice vintage machine. I need to ask the previous owner where he got it from. More on the Dalton can be found on Tony Griffith's site: http://www.lathes.co.uk/dalton/
