My guess is Beaver or Atlas. But I’d go over to OWWM and search the photo database by tool and look for a comparable.

Looking at this several hrs ago but didn’t want to sound like a wet Q-Tip, my first thought was Atlas..

Behind the number 2 door is—————————a set of chisels and cabinet which went with the deal, Sorby chisels that is. All been sharpened and looked after. Im having a bit of fun here in that I am unsure if the pic attached….

Try again, here is the set of chisels which came with it. Dangerously sharp.

It looks like a better built ShopSmith. And the link belt is interesting, didn’t know they were around in the 40s – 50s. Grower – your mission is now to collect all the attachments. You know you want them after seeing them.

I felt lathe made in UK, could not find that model looking at Hailsham or Union Grad companies. Happy to learn made by Myford.

No clue on turning tools, and besides don’t care.
