    Queried to this he replied that he had lost the ring finger as a young man newly married. He...

    I had a 15" Flather which came with a drive-all gearbox and 3hp 3 phase motor. The motor got replaced with a 1.5 hp motor and that did EVERYTHING I needed on that lathe. If you're driving a cone...

    It is hard to know. Tony's lathe site puts the dating of these lathes to "pre-Civil War." No reference given.

    Tony's lathe site also shows what he conceives as a "later" pattern of the lathe -...

    Another Ames Chicopee Toolroom Lathe

    Seen on Ebay (yes I know but offered here "for information only" with no commentary on value, or general salability. Have no connection, no interest except in a historical way)

    My 1907 Flather (with the Norton Style change gears) had a similar layout.

    Any gears with that? Mine has two additional "hole plates" (total three) which I think is standard, at least in my size.

    I'm not sure it matters what the thread dial does. Rather the 1/2 or 1/4 thread fractions come from your gearset (either loose gears or quick change) Once these are in place, all you need to cut...

    I'm also seeing that this lathe seems to have only a lead screw - which leads me (ha!) to a thought that this may be a lathe made in the mid-19th century "toolmaker" tradition - a tradition which was...
  17. Small Flather Lathe (4' bed) on Craigiist

    See Antique metalworking lathe - tools - by owner - sale

    I think Flather. I see a square brass plate in the usual spot and the styling is generic and "Flather."

    Price is not bad. ...

    I like the "early" Pratt & Whitney mills as they resemble the rest of the machine tool styling of that period.
