    Small Putnam Lathe For Sale

    Actually Putnam and other makers called this a Hand Lathe. It could cut metal too. I don't think the "saddle/cross slide" is original. Still a cute lathe. Rob

    Lineshaft Machine Shop Photos

    It would be a nice one to have. There was one on the PM some time ago. Dated 1871. I don't know if it was saved or not. Rob

    That would put the pictures after 1868. In 1867 it was New York Steam Engine Works. In 1868 it became New Your Steam Engine Co. The pictures look to be from the early to mid 1870's. The last picture are Lucius Pond machines. Rob
