    Default Is this a back-geared headstock?

    A close inspection of the Tony lathe site does not show this exact machine, but the headstock sports a suspiciously back-gear type lever on the front. Would those be 5C, or shaublin collets?

    Thanks - Jim

    Yes, it looks like the backgear headstock. I would be ready to bet that the collets are Schaublin collets, not 5C

    Yes, it's a backgeared headstock as Paolo wrote.

    From the given collet sizes and the pictures, I would suspect the collets to be W25. (25mm ~ 1 inch spindle bore): if the largest is 55/64th, it can't be a W20 (at max 20mm ~50/64th), and a 5C would have more "meat" left, I think.

    The stand is not by Schaublin; it would be interesting to see what, if any, (expensive) goodies are hidden in there...

    Thanks guys - this is *just* close enough (barely) to be tempting.

    It’s on a South Bend cabinet.

    Yes, if near me, I’d drive out with intent to buy if in reasonable condition.
