Long story made short, a distant relative gave me this lathe, since he received it from his uncle, who is also my cousin.

The lathe was missing a tailstock and motor. The lower pulley requires a 1/2" shaft. A tailstock was acquired from a fellow OWWMer.

The simple sleeve bearings in the headstock are very good, which suggests minimal usage. A set of chisels was part of the deal. They are an older Craftsman set (my cousin apparently bought the new with the lathe, when I'm not sure). They are not much to talk about.

It's a sweet little lathe, however, complete with indexing ring on the upper pulley.

Restoration photos when I'm finished with it.

Comments: The whole thing (more or less). My cousin built a stand and protected the motor with part of an old sign.
