Look at Stephen Mines lathe under Reciprocated Columns, or if you really want a new lathe to drool over
look at Ray Lawler of Raytown, Mo’s new version of the Holtzapffel lathe, I have wanting one of these since
reading about them in a Popular Science magazine. They were only $8,000 each in 1974. For now my
dream lathe is the one I have a 1950’s era Rockwell/Delta 39-6242 with the compound slide rest and sanding
table accessories. I still have to hook up the 3 phase Varidrive that came with the lathe, but one of these days.
