    I really don't have time to mess with an old lathe but what is it anyway?

      Looks like an old brake drum lathe to me.

        Post some pics with different views. First look says a specialty tool grinder.

          Looks a lot like a lantern tool post next to the chuck so I think it has some kind of specialty lathe function. There also seems to be some type of vertical adjustment with that large handwheel on the column. I believe the key is knowing the function of that part on the left but I have no idea what that might be.

            My guess is its a custom second op machine. However, more pics would sure help.
