  • Antique lathe

    Does anyone know what make lathe this is? My brother-in-law has it and uses it every now and then. There is no name or stamping numbers we can find. It is a factory built lathe as best I can tell.

    It's only ink and paper

    Very interesting!

    Carl, that does look factory built.
    Is the chuck a 3 jaw scroll chuck? Any markings on the chuck?
    Looks like the Topslide is set over for threading.
    Does it still turn out pretty good work?

    Oh, most importantly, how many Microns runout at the Spindle Nose .

    Any more pics of it?

      Have seen similar looking lathes in Australia, can't recall the name of them ever being mentioned.

        These are all I have of it. I think the chuck is an independant jaw chuck not a scroll. For it's age it is fairly tight. It don't look like it has been abused.

          Well, I have no idea as to its make, but this "old girl" is just begging for a good clean up and being put back to work making chips.

              Hi Tony, top o' the mornin' to ya'.

              He keeps it covered with canvas to stop the rust and it works. Ronnie is a big farmer in the Boot Heel of Mo. and uses it once in a while. He has Mules and antique farm equipment to work them with for a hobby.
