Yeahhhhhh. Nah. Non of that is there.
Well, at least half of what above is.

Looking VERY Lathe & Morse in this pix. Here you're only missing the T-slide.

The carriage appears all ready to move right to left. Well, except for the feed rod to make it happen.

Based on the bed design I would put this to "Lathe & Morse Tool Company" which is the nom-de-plume after 1871.

It would be a fun little lathe for someone to bring back. I would do it myself except I already have TWO Ames-Chicopee "Toolmaker" lathes which are similar use/application.

Old iron expands to fill available space - of course.
