    Over the years, I have seen several old lathes that had car transmissions set up like that.

        I have a similar American Lathe It was a 24" but at sometime there was a 6" riser added. I takes 2 people to change the chuck.
        It has a overhead mounted motor with a factory transmission. The trans has a high and low speed, neutral and reverse.
        On one end of the trans there are v-belts driven by the motor and on the other end the is a flat that drops down to the original headstock.
        It actually works pretty good.
        Before I had my 16" SB I used the old girl quite a bit.
        About all it's used for now it to polish magnesium wheels off of vintage midget's.

        People say I'm getting crankier as I get older. That's not it. I just find I enjoy annoying people a lot more now. Especially younger people!!!
