    It's an AMT lathe. They manufactured a line of lower priced machine tools that were often available in various stages of completion. I bought my first (cast iron) drill press vise from them. It had a...

    It could be for almost anything.

    One use would be the nut for the knee elevating screw on a milling machine.

    IMO best options would either be:

    2) A heavy duty 12v battery with a new 240v...
