Acquired through Facebook Market Place. I was told the Lathe came from the Norfolk Navy Yard (NNSY). It originally had a 3 phase motor. The previous owner swapped it out for the current Baldor L1310 1hp single phase. It is missing the original hand wheel and banjo. So far I have rewired it from 110 to 220 volt, added an on/off switch, and replaced the belts. The origin bearings are still present and are fine. New to the lathe is the ONEWAY stronghold chuck and banjo.
