I found this lathe on Craigslist while on a golf holiday. The owner did not have any information on its history. It had a lot of surface rust but was otherwise sound. I cleaned off the rust, painted it, waxed the ways and replaced the step pulley with a flat bed pulley. I made a chuck key from a hex allen wrench and a tailstock lock from an old Delta wrench. I also had to make a tool lantern locking washer and rocker. Currently it is functional but on my fireplace mantle as I construct an appropriate bench. This is a cool lathe.
