Ok, here,s the scoop.
A friend of mine in poor health was at an auction awhile back and tells me he bought an old lathe, a very heavily built one, it appears to have a decent sized swing, but only a short bed.
This lathe he had stored temporarily in some trees at a neighbours house some distance away.
(I know, strange kinda story,,)
Anyway, the only name he can remember cast into the lathe was "ShortCut".
By chance,, anyone here possibly have any idea what make of lathe this could be, and it,s purpose? Thanks.:rolleyes:
