lathe Identification?
« on: October 28, 2016, 09:30:01 am »
We came across this lathe at a silent auction (Don't know if we won it yet). It looks to be in GREAT condition. Just not to sure if it could be easily modified to be useful for bot parts. I don't know too much about lathes, but my best guess is that this may be a metal spinning lathe? I'm also guessing that it's around 100 years old?

If anyone can help shine some light on what type of lathe this is, roughly how old it is, and if it can be used for making bot parts we would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Mike!! Based on that I'm thinking its the 11 inch x 5 foot ENGINE LATHE.

I have no idea what that means though. Time to hit google!
