    I saved this from the scrapper's torch. This workbench lathe measures about 12 feet long. I'm assuming it was a lathe just on appearance. It was torch cut on one end so it was definitely longer. The "ways" and legs are also unique. One leg is missing. Any ideas are appreciated (and it might be for sale). Thanks!

    Rob Lang knows the "pattern" of certain mid-19th century machine tool legs. He may know this one.

    It is, of course, a "relic" - but not worth too much. Scrap actually seems about right - but if you need legs, it could be invaluable.

    If the tail stock ways are flat ways then this is an early New Haven Mfg. Co. lathe.
    The bed is not worth anything.
    I would be interested in the legs for my old New Haven Mfg. machines.

    If I found that locally, I would do exactly what they are doing with it. Workbench or possibly a welding jig table.
