  • Flather lathe

    Has anyone ever heard of a Flather Lathe? I saw this and wondered what the heck it is: "Metal lathe, Flather Company, Inc., 64”bed, 3 phase, good old machine, $850". Did a little research and it turns out that the Flather guy was responsible for inventing many of the features we take for granted on our lathes today. A little history for anyone interested:

    Looks like a strong small machine. I see features similar to my Seneca Falls.
