Unknown German Watchmaker's Lathe
Entry No. 157

Unknown Lathes Home Page

With its "crisp" modern-looking finish (as distinct from the soft nickel-plating of classic examples) this must be a lathe from no earlier than the 1960s. With a 50 mm centre height and a bed of the WW (Webster Whitcombe) type - it clearly a professional job. Surviving with the lathe is a set of collets, a flip-up T test and a pump-centre faceplate with jaws.
The style of the bed feet is unknown to the writer, might you know who manufactured it?
