Machine Type: Lathe
Machine Description: Model C, NCR 9, CL 415 Y
Owner: Dennis L Willing
Manufactuer Date: 1925 est.
Notes: Source=Owner's submission (admin added estimated date based on s/n). Owner's comments: This lathe was owned by Service Diamond Tool Company with an office north of Port Huron, Michigan. My father used to do some work for them on the side and when he decided to quit they encouraged him to work from home and gave him this lathe. This was probably in the 1960s. He rebuilt the lathe. He kept the lathe in our basement and worked with it for years, giving it to me when he no longer felt safe working with power tools, sometime after the year 2000. I still have the lathe and use it weekly.
