Owner: Jim Spencer
Manufactuer Date: 1957
Notes: Source=Owner's submission: Lathe was found in Elkhart, Indiana. I bought it from a gentleman who sharpened tools for a living, but had only used the machine a handful of times. He purchased the lathe used from NorthWood High School in Nappanee, Indiana. I think that he bought the lathe 2 years ago, because there was a calibration card for one of the chucks that was dated 2016. This lathe was manufactured in 1957 according to the serial dating information on http://www.wswells.com/serial_number.html Original SBL build card shows a delivery date of July 1958.
