    Rathbone made chuckers, similar to a Hardinge HC or a Tsugami.

    Sorry no pic last night and I go fishing in La Paz Mexico early in the morning so No further info till after then. I know the Manuf. is Rathbone and a seperate tage reads Marquart aircraft co not Bendix. The dealer tag is there too but has too many coats of paint to read but looks like they were out of Ohio.

    Thanks for the help

    Thats IT I don't have the bench but the lathe part is complete but is missing the motor and controls.

    Now what do I do with it? I have been torn between fixing it and using the parts to make other machines. I driveshaft machine is one posible use.

    Any opinions?
