8 Inch Tool Maker's Precision Lathe #178
Owned by Kris Hendricks
Kris bought this lathe out of a scrap yard. It is missing many parts and he is searching for a parts machine. It was a Navy machine and the end of the bed is marked "No.1 Lot 9 Serial No.178" and stamped with a Naval anchor insignia.
Note the small grooves turned in the flats of the headstock cone pulley- it is not known if this is factory original or if it was added later.
