Wlcome Steve I am not a turner so I know nuthing about lathes, but that is really a cool looking lathe
Welcome aboard, Steve. Wow! Back when tools had style. Love the curves. And one honking motor under that bench!

Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?
That is one good looking lathe.

there's no sheet metal and diecast aluminum in any of my tools, the're all older than most of us
for the lathe guys, this lathe has a 4 speed in the headstock then im driving it with a 5 speed jackshaft. to use the 8 inch pulley, i have to switch belts. takes me 15 seconds
speed range is from 200 to 4000 plus rpm
main power switch is the manual starter on the stand, the switch on the motor reverses the motor by changing the "polarity" of the start circuit
Welcome, Steve. Glad you found us. Love the way you have this cool old lathe set up.
Welcome aboard, Steve, from another Canadian fellow! What part of Canada?
