    Have the seller take off the Drive-All if you wish, though I can't see why. (These are 1), good working, and 2), excellent historically.)

    I noted above that have some Nebel literature (there are two pieces and one Rahn-Larmon). I've just checked and, as I really knew already, both pieces very much predate the lathe in question.

    What a nice looking shop that is or was.

    Nebel was the successor, the late 1930's if I recall correctly, to Rahn-Larmon. I have several pieces of earlier Nebel literature and a fine circa 1915 Rahn-Larmon double back geared well tooled...

    Very early small size turret lathe; nice machine.

    I guessed Bardons & Oliver. but I I now don't think so. Pratt & Whitney still had these--similar appearing but more modern--in a 1916 catalog,...

  15. Please help identify small metal shaper

    A local fellow bought this little shaper a day or so ago. I suspect that it is not a manufactured unit but one shop made, probably university engineeering class or something like that. But the main...
