I have the lathe my father usd for years. It's probably very early 1900's.
I was line shaft driven but my Dad converted it ... sorta.

When he died, I stored it in my storage unit.
The feeds are "backwards" as compared to a modern lathe but it all worked. He (and I ) made tons of stuff on it.

If soneone would want it ... I'd be glad to give it to them.  You would have to come and get it or have it picked up ... It's not real big ...
I thing the bed is about 4 feet long and it might swing about 12" ...

I'll get pics tomorrow and post them.

Can't wait to see the pics , early 1900's cool Cool   , line shaft driven , does that mean belt drive off an over head shaft that drives many units in a factory type setting  scratch sounds like a neat piece  , 100 years is a long time and a family connection too, awesome  salut
