    I'm probably not the first to say it's Gross.

    Hi,

    Gross is the machinery dealer where it was sold.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Hi,

    Here is a picture of the carriage if that may help identify.

    Thanks again,

    Merli, Gornatti, Torrent, ZAM?

    Going off the position of the long travel hand wheel I'd say it's unlikely to be British.

    Regards Tyrone.

    Gross Machine Group shows as a Canadian company selling Japanese equipment on Google. You may want to contact them.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies. I ended up looking at the lathe, it is an Azeta Lloyd 250. It looked like it would have been a nice machine but the ways were in rough shape so I passed.

    Thanks again,

    Corbin
