I'm not at liberty to say where this lathe is. Sufficient to say it's in the lower half of the North Island of New Zealand.

Yet another lovely old Dean Smith and Grace (the "Rolls Royce" of metal lathes) 17" lathe. It's one of three Dean Smith and Grace lathes at this location.

The lathe has 18 speeds: 9.8, 13.4; 17.3; 22.5, 31; 40; 51; 70; & 90r.p.m. in "slow", and 98, 134; 173; 225, 310; 400; 510; 700; & 900r.p.m. in "fast". There are also six speeds in reverse: 17.3; 40; & 90r.p.m. in "slow", and 173; 400; & 900r.p.m. in "fast".
