Hey, I'm trying to identify this old lathe in the photos.

My dad has had it for a while and now has it running, however he has a large collection of spare parts and we're not sure if they belong with the lathe or not. I said I would try to find out what the make of it is so that we can try and get more information about what he's got and if the parts are suitable etc etc.

Any help gratefully received! 278574307_964739380907136_8332498356867643572_n.jpg278431645_291088093199463_6437661262009607875_n.jpg278429927_268282522181332_7854822688065002249_n.jpg278716258_1071496703439759_444304793236276011_n.jpg278958544_1309452186245000_1344436313663559294_n.jpg

When I see old UK bench lathes, I think first of Britannia, but I think you have something else. You can spend many happy hours going down the list of lathe makers and looking at pictures on Tony's site. Check the bolt threads and try to figure out if they are UK standard, metric or something else and look at just the UK or whatever makers on the list to save time.

Thank you very much for the help, it does indeed look like the Myford, I've sent a link of the archive to my dad so he can take a closer look and do some comparisons, will update in a few days with progress!
