    Default Anyone recognize this lathe compound?

    This came to me with a group of mostly European tools and has a distinctive enough look that I'm hoping someone spots it and can identify the lathe its from. I'll try to get better pics, but thought its the hand wheel that might give it away. It strikes me as well made and European so thought this group might know.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what lathe but agree it resembles the Colchester compounds I've had. Guarantee it is not from a Bantam or Chipmaster size lathe tho, maybe a larger machine?

    thanks...you're right, it does look at like them. Here's a shot of a Colchester Triumph....looks the same if you zoom in on the compound. I'll take some photos with a rule to show size

    Colchester Student Mk1 & 2, also the Colchester Master. Matches the Master we have, but without scale hard to tell exactly what size.
