D.W.POND Metal Lathe?? .
Here is little about the company history:
D.W.Pond Worcester, MA founded by David W. Pond ( 1848-1897) in 1872 after leaving
partnership with his father Lucius W. Pond. Early production was almost entirely engine
lathes and vertical drilling machines. Pond bought out his father's creditors when L. W.
POND failed in 1875, merged the firm with his own company and operated for a time as D.
W. POND, SUCCESSOR TO L.W. POND. In 1882 Pond was the largest machine tool
builder in Worcester, employing 240 men. The firm was incorporated February 1, 1883, as
the POND MACHINE TOOL CO. with D.W. Pond as president. The company moved to
Plaintfield, NJ , in 1887 with Pond now serving as superintendent. He sold his interest to
MANNING, MAXWELL & MOORE in 1894 and shot himself August 4, 1897. On August 15,
1899, the company merged with the NILES TOOL WORKS and BEMENT, MILES & CO. to
form the NILES-BEMENT-POND CO.
The lathe has 17" swing and 60" between centers. I bought this machine 7 years ago from
repair shop where it was sitting many years with no use. Somebody built huge metal
frame to mount motor on the back of the lathe, but it took about 3' of space behind the
machine so I scraped it and decided to build drive unit below the spindle. I used
hydrostatic transmission to get infinite variable speed and 3 Hp motor. With exception of
slot for spindle V belt which I cut out, but saved the metal, so it can be filled in, everything
just bolts in place using original holes. I restored the whole lathe over several years to the
original shape, carefully cleaning everything to the bear metal and repainting with primer
and oil based paint by hand, just like the original. It has also few old repairs of broken
teeth on the back gear and the clamps, that holds spindle bearing which I kept that way.
This machine has all the original parts with exception of drive, chuck and hand cranks.
Original hand cranks were broken and welded, so I just saved them and they will be
included so is the 4 jaw chuck, that came with the machine.

Not much is known about this lathe, except that
it is gear-driven and very old. It has been used
in an auto yard, but is still in good condition with
no functional damage
This is an old metal lathe made by The Seneca Falls Mfg. Co. in
Seneca Falls, NY. Length=67". Height=48". The patent date on the lathe
is June 30th, 1885. The patent date on the legs is Nov 5th, 1895. I don't
know that much about lathes, but I do know that you can turn something
down in this machine up to 36" long. When I bought the lathe (about 3
years ago), it had a make-shift setup so that it is run by an electric
motor and a belt. When I bought it, I modified this setup so that the
motor stayed in place and the belt was easy to adjust. I built a custom
chopper with every intension of building most of my own parts with this
lathe, but ended up buying most of my parts already finished, so I have
only used the lathe a couple of times. The lathe is not perfect-I know
one gear has a few broken teeth on it, but this is not a drive gear (I am
not sure what this gear does). The electric motor locks up when it gets
warm (it too is old), so it will need to be replaced as well. This comes
with a filing cabinet filled with different gears and cutting tools. This is
extremely heavy, so it would be for local pickup only. I will be more than
happy to provide more pictures and any information requested

Miller Falls Vintage Lathe ??,Scroll saw,Treadle power
Miller Falls Lathe with the Scroll saw attachment. These Lathes were made bout 1885 to 1915. The Lathe is marked on
the leg Miller Falls Co. You can see by the pictures this lathe saw combo is in excellent condition for its age with only a
few knicks on it paint which is normal. There are NO cracks, breaks or repairs to this lathe or scroll saw attacment.The
wood on this piece is also in like new condition. This lathe has its orginal emery wheel which is in great condition.and the
belt is good. I put on a new spiral saw blade, most of the new saw blades will fit. Both the lathe and saw runs very
smooth and is ready to go to work. I will also through in a new boring bit that I didn't get a picture of. The shipping is said
to be $45.00 but that is only an estimate it maybe more or less depending on your location. The buyer will only pay the
exact shipping and Insurance amount and no extra fee the shipping these days are bad enough. If you want to try to figure
it, it weighs about 70 lbs. and my zip is 44460. I sure there is something I have forgot so, If you have Questions email me
or call 330-337-1768 ask for Mike. Thanks for looking and do'nt be sniped
