I purchased a colchester clausing lathe.
model number: LMRER6586V/14147 13 inch swing, 25" cc
5 HP motor, electric brake, weight about 2000 pounds
when I purchased it I was told it was a model 2500 master
can anyone help indentfy age, and what I have. It seems like a good,
strong machine.
TIA

Thanks
According to Tony's info I have a 2500 master, older model since it has the brake in the head vis a foot brake.
