Costruzioni Meccaniche Tortona S.p.A. (C.M.T.) were based in the Italian city of Tortona.  Their "URSUS" lathe appears to have been the backbone of their 1960s and 1970s production and was available in centre heights of 200, 225 and 250mm (7.9", 8.6 and 9.8") and with a choice of between-centre capacities of 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and 3000mm. (39.4", 59.4", 78.7" and 98").
The smaller lathes had a 52mm hole through the spindle (2") and the larger a massive 105mm (4").
