    Default Machine Identification Help

    Hello,

    I'm hoping someone can help me get some info on my new toe lathe. I don't know much about it besides it's a Pratt and Whitney lathekimg1016.jpg

    My dad had two like that. Great for small batches. You can still get parts (albeit kinda expensive).

    I'll guess early 20s 16" - not yet to Model B design

    I'll also say photo does not look like a PW - no lead screw reverse on apron? No feed clutch in center of carriage hand wheel

    Scan from long ago - like 1923

    Here is the great old mid thirties Model B brochure

    I'll take a few more pictures. I don't think I have any of the two tags on the machine.
