8A #unknown

Owned by Joseph Comerford

Joseph bought his 8A from the widow of a machinist in Waltham, MA.  The bench is home made.  Originally the machine was an early variable speed drive with two vee belts driving the headstock; in it's present state the variable speed has been omitted, with the original motor and clutch unit driving an aftermarket speed box, which drives the headstock.

Joseph has not been able to find a serial number anywhere on the machine.

The lathe came with the original face plate, dog drive plate, collet drawbar and some collets.
