Comments:
- This unusual lathe was owned by a watchmaker,where it sat in a basement for many years.
- Bought by my uncle where it was used in a side-office to his small garage shop business.
- Sold to me in Sept 2019 where it will be refurbished. It appears dirty, but has little to no wear on the ways.
- Part of the alleged most rare South Bends. http://www.lathes.co.uk/south-bend-series-20/
