View Full Version : Old no name lathe

19th Aug 2018, 09:40 PM
Hi everyone,

First time here and I'm hoping for some help in learning about a new (old) lathe I purchased.
As part of a restoration of an old 1961 split screen kombi, I found myself becoming more and more interested in shaping and building panels by hand. This has led me to also consider making tools as well.
What a rabbit hole I fell into!

My recent direction led me to want to get a lathe, but I wanted an older model. So I ended up with this little number.

I'm told its really old but wasn't able to find any reference to a model or brand. I'de love to know what it is, if anyone can help, I'de be grateful.
