Picked up this lathe today at my mothers house that I had almost forgotten about. I inherited these from my grandfather 20 yrs ago and had put them in storage when I moved over 10 yrs ago.
This is a real old beauty, solid cast iron, measures only 22” long. Has wood pullies and 1 has leather attached to it, like maybe the belt drive. Has no markings on it that I can see, so I dont know what brand or who made it. I’m going to do some research to see what I can find.
Thought I’d throw this out to all the LJ’s who wood turn.

Wow! Saw something similar, if not the same at Livingston Antiqes last week. No branding on it either. Was tempting but I passed it up. Amazing how some of these old tools can be cleaned up and made to work well.
