Around 4-inches in centre height and 20 inches between centres little is known of this very rare, early Emco lathe. The drive was from a motor-countershaft unit inside the open-fronted stand.
Should any reader have one of these lathes, or any early Emco machine tool, the writer would be very interested to hear from you.
