New lathe to my collection and restoration project.
Certainly the most complex of the Goodell tools was the treadle lathe that made its appearance in the catalog during the first half of the 1880s. With a bed just twenty-four inches long and barely capable of accommodating a fifteen-inch piece of stock between its centers, the Goodell lathe was strictly a hobbyist’s product. The basic Goodell sold for ten dollars and included both long and short tool rests, five turning chisels, a wrench and a set of drill points. For an additional two dollars, a detachable scroll saw head could be added to the apparatus. The cost of a complete Goodell unit—a lathe with detachable saw—was roughly comparable to that of the company’s Lester unit—a saw with detachable lathe. While the Lester had the advantage of being able to cut stock two inches thick, its lathe attachment was limited to stock just nine inches in length.
I know collectors prefer aged lathe but this will not be for sale, for my own collection. Next new rogers treadle saw..
