    Default Portuguese EFI (Eduardo Ferreirinha e Irmão) FF1 Lathe, Anyone heard of them?

    Looking at buying one. 22" swing 8ft bed. Anyone used one before or familiar with them? I know replacement parts pretty much can't be found. Very similar to the first one pictured here: Lathes made in Portugal | The Hobby-Machinist

    Sadly that's the only place I've found anything on them.

    They're still alive as a subsidiary of another company and their website says they still supply parts for EFI machines. Info here: PAM - EFI

    I have an old EFI gear head drill press, but have not seen one of the lathes before.

    Good to know. The EFI lathe I was looking at has an 8ft bed for a total length of 11ft, which is just a bit too long for my space, otherwise I would have picked it up, so it's still for sale in Hershey PA.
