Machine Information
Serial Number: 30
Machine Type: Lathe
Machine Description: "Type H" Large PM's Gap Lathe
Owner: John Marotta
Manufactuer Date: 1903-07
Notes: Although this machine carries a Navy dataplate bearing a 1908 date, its serial number does NOT come up in the ledger which shows all the 1907+ numbers. Therefore, and since it carries no model number, it appears to be the earlier "Type H" lathe, rather than the newer "Model 26". That being the case, it means it was the 30th "Type H" built.
