Hey guys, I'm a HSM with big stuff. I bought an engine lathe from a widow a few years back--never seen one like it.In the first place,the head looks like a nice casting until you pull the lid--it's a weldment!3.25 spindle bore,4-spd.gear train incorporating a roller chain.All the name plates are gone.The shift levers are concentric(2)-kind of looks like a Standard-Modern. Anybody remember seeing one?(swing is about 17"),Ball bearing spindle.

Sounds like a Dave Gingery lathe,I'd love to build one of those.
