I’m using a lathe that is over 100 years old. I have a couple faceplates and a drive spur but no chucks. It also has a “dead” center that needs lubed with wax regularly. I haven’t looked into a live center or a chuck. If anyone has a link that would show me what is available for antiques like mine, I would really appreciate it! My lathe was made by Greenfield Tap & Die in Greenfield, MA and was driven by leather belts from an overhead shaft. It has served me well for over 45 years and I have no plans to replace it.
