            Not if it stays backed up in that corner.

            Nice lathe. I've got one just like it but 12x30 and blue.

              Beautiful picture Ken K. Is it just sitting on that door not bolted down or does it live on a different bench?

                The picture was taken after a restoration. It's mounted on a bench now. Dang dirty too.

                  That's the DeLuxe, with all the extra covers over the belts.

                  You've got the change gears, but the dauber in the tailstock is missing - you'll never be able to make anything without that.

                  (I guess that should have a smilie; but I hate those damn things)

                      Thanks JRouche, IOWOlf, Ken. The paint appears to be original. Yes, those are some of the gears and rest. It comes with other accessories that are in the drawers on the stand. That corner is a temporary spot for it whilst I get her cleaned up. That sure is a beauty Ken.

                        Here's one more. It's sitting in a borrowed corner of a patient friend's shop.
