Machines I recently saved for my hands

HERE IS A VERY EARLY POWER DRIVE SPINDLE ENGRAVING MACHINE ( I bought on e-bay).
LARGE CAST IRON FRAME WITH NAME IN BASE - " SCHUCHARDT & SCHIITTE BERLIN. " -. RARE
PRE WORLD WAR ONE MACHINE TOOL.

Sometimes It's a dirty sweaty job.
But someone's got to do it.

Now I know how the ancient
Brown and sharpe no. 3 Automatic screw machine I bought out of The Henry Ford
museum. I saw this machine in the Arlington and sims shop and wanted every time I
saw it as a kid starting about 10 years old, and now i finally by a quirk have it.

very much like the New Haven Lathe I just bought. Pic's to follow
American Artifacts supplied the Above pictures a great place to buy machines from and the following info
New Haven No. 5 lathe
The lathe has a 10 ft bed supported on three pairs of decoratively shaped legs. 18" throw, 10" over the slide rest, 82" between centers. MT 3 tail and MT
4 head with 2" 7 tpi spindle. 18" 4 jaw chuck and 17" faceplate. Center rest and 13 loose change gears included. The lathe is in good working order.
The front headstock bearing is sloppy, but not noticeable with the 150 lb chuck in place. There is an old break in the rear right end of the bed. This
didn't pose a problem when I dismantled and brought the lathe home 5 years ago, but, it might be a good idea to take the bed to a welding shop while it
is dismantled for transport and have it welded while on your truck or trailer.
New Haven Mfg. advertised their lathes as early as 1854 in the Scientific American. This lathe is likely from the 1880's.
