I came apon this lathe at a flea market.It was nailed to a plank,and the tailstock was in sad shape.I paid fifteen dollars for it,mostly out of pity,and found,in scraping a layer of axle grease,a small decal bearing the words driver line.This is the only information I really have,other than the fact that the spur center is marked l-370.The lathe is what would now be called a mini lathe,having only a four inch swing,but I only ever use it to make tool handles anyways.It is easy to gauge the length of the object to be turned;the ways are just shy of the length of a delta lathe chisel.Update: I have recently found out, due to the OWWM publication reprint, that this lathe was listed in the 1934 Walker Turner catalog for the princely sum of four dollars and fifty cents.Nothing but the best for me.
there so cute when they're little
headstock is 1/2 inch 28
that's a normal sized chisel
