This Duro 3053 wood lathe belonged to my grandfather, Ben. I'm guessing it was built around 1940 based on sales brochures I found on this website.
I believe that the "53" in the serial number refers to model 3053 and not to 1935. I could be wrong. It has a rare tool rest made by E.O. Partridge. This lathe takes the impossible to find New Departure 88504A19 bearing. I added a name plate with my grandfathers name so that any future owners will know who owned it:
