Unknown Lathe No. 89

Looking like a mixture of Schaublin, Boley and Lorch, this precision bench lathe is of obvious quality - but perhaps not of the absolutely first rate. Unfortunately non of the usual clues are present: the handwheels to tighten the carriage and tailstock although rather Boley-like are different; the tailstock resembles that on a typical Lorch - but only just - while the headstock, with its conventionally arranged 4-step V-belt drive, brings nothing to mind at all.
Instead of the usual precision bench l lathe long-travel top slide, this Lorch-like unknown machine has one of quite ordinary appearance and very short travel. Even the micrometer dial, though large, lacks engraved digits and the line spacing appears unduly wide.
