Hey guys,
My buddy's grand father passed away a couple of months ago and he has some machines he is trying to figure out what they are. There is one gapped bed lathe that has very few information on it and we are having trouble finding out what it is. We believe it was made in Italy and it has a 50 hz motor on it. It also has the letters Alfe 180 or Alpe 180 stamped on the right side near the bottom of the base. If anyone has some knowledge of this machine it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Russ
