Hi All,

A friend of mine just bought what we think is a Euro lathe , most writings on it are gone but some writings we still can see are in Spanish.

Can you help us identify that lathe?

All I have for now is a pic of the company logo which I include here.

I hope to be able to post more pictures of the lathe asap

Thanks for your help

Find a convenient nut or bolt to remove and see if it is metric or English.

That only works on old stuff Bill. I remember the company I was working at changing to metric completely over one weekend in about 1973. All the bins in the stores were completely emptied of Imperial nuts and bolts etc and re-filled with metric equivalents. That’s nearly 50 years ago now. It was chaos at first but we got by.

Regards Tyrone.

The photo looks like it is in an old grimy shop with little lighting. So I assumed it was a old machine. The logo looks to be cast iron, not plastic or pot metal.
Of course my 1973 Volvo 145 was all USA fasteners, not metric. I belive Sweeden changed to right hand drive on the roads in 1967. But Volvos were always left hand steering. Did they make right hand steering cars for the UK?

Yes they did, our motorway ( freeway ? ) police forces liked “ Volvo “ estate cars because they were seriously fast.

I bought a new Volvo 164 sedan in 1969. It did indeed have mostly USA standard fasteners, and American-designed transmission and rear axle. But the German ZF brake and steering components had metric fasteners. That was when I added metric tools to my collection.

Definitely a European mill. The steering wheel is on the right hand side.

Also... not very traditional. They usually have 6 or 8 spokes.
