I have been given a small old lathe - it's not home made. It is for metal and not wood. The bed, the chuck, the tool post, cross slide, carriage and the tail stock assembly all seem to belong together. It is on a stand made of angle iron and the motor and drive belt system look like it has been put together by a farmer from bits hanging around the farm. It is a barn find and it is in good working order. I think it is maybe pre WW1. There are a few tools with it but not many. Chuck is about 5" in diameter. Is this worth giving room to? I could see using it for making spacers and cutting bolts to length cleanly. Anything else?
