I just picked this up. Got it for free on the Detroit, MI Craig's List. It has a broken off arm on the tail stock Where the production arm would attach, and no tool rest or tool holder. It is a flat belt driven lathe. I will upload more before photos soon. No I.D. plae but has J.G. Blount, Everett, Mass on the tailstock. The headstock has a single flat belt pulley sheave mounted inside the head area and a three step flat belt pulley mounted outside on the shaft. Probably wrong! Here is a link to the full patent for it (You can also download this as a PDF file).:
