This is my new 1951 Oliver 159-A lathe I purchased a few weeks back to go through and sell. It was in good working order with a few minor parts missing. I disassembled, sandblasted, replaced worn parts, abused bolts and screws, primed and painted and have just reassembled it to its good as new state. A new belt should arrive tomorrow. I am looking for an original Oliver faceplate and tool rest if anyone just happens to have those laying around (hint hint). It should be turning wood next week! I love equipment and I had a ball going through this lathe. I just might have to keep this one. (that’s the way it always goes) LOL
