Unknown Lathe No. 45
Unknown lathes home page

Of simple, lightweight construction (along the lines of the English Holmes) this little backgeared and screwcutting lathe could have been made at any point between 1890 and 1910 - the exceptionally slender headstock bearing posts and outboard spindle thrust plate almost certainly ruling out later manufacture. If you know anything about its origins, or recognise it from a contemporary advertisement, please do make contact.
