note-no-carrage weight-plain no ornate-ness at all pretty boring, more
robust but inflexable. A purely production animal,
in its simplest art deco form.
 Sorry Jane, that's how I feel. plain-and purely ecomonical machines are
not why I collect, or what got me excited about antique machinery many

interest and excitement rules.
The ornate star
or starl lathe
1870's-1880's
And now for poor plain Jane below, younger but less flexible, missing parts,
and anything extra. Just pointed buisness, used rarerely because if it.
"Victoria" the Star lathe on the left and unkown "Plain Jane" lathe on the
right. I bought these in Ohio, note their different legs wow what a
difference girls..........Compaire-and-contrast
