Antique Profession Print-TURNER-LATHE-Luyken-1694

Description: This scarse original old antique print / plate originates from: 'Spiegel van het Menselyk Bedryf' (Mirror of Human Activities.) or 'Iets voor Allen.' (Something for everyone.). See subject
description for exact source. In 1694 the Amsterdam artists Jan and Casper Luyken published their celebrated work 'Spiegel van het Menselyk Bedryf.', a collection of one hundred fine engravings
depicting the arts and crafts. Each print is depicting a particular occupation, with the name of the profession, one or two explanatory lines above the plate and followed by a six-line poem below.
The book was an instant success and was reprinted many times up to 1767. Other printers and booksellers tried to gain profit from the popular best seller as well. The first of many pirated
editions appeared as soon as 1695. As such the work by Abraham de St. Clara who published: 'Etwas fur Alle ...' or 'Iets voor Allen' (Something for everyone.) in several editions from 1699 on in
both German and Dutch, is best known. This work had 200 engravings, including many, mostly in reverse, after the Luyken prints mentioned above. We carry many of these prints as well. Please
inquire if you are looking for a particular profession, but cannot find it.

Artists and Engravers: Jan Luyken (1649-1712) belonged to the best engravers of the period. His son Casper (1672-1708) assisted with the making of the prints. Abraham a Sancta Clara (1644 -
1709) was an Austrian Augustinian Monk. His lay name was Johann Ulrich Megerle. He was friar, preacher, and author of popular books of devotion, known for his great eloquence.

1800s Antique Ames Sword No.00 Civil War
Toolroom Lathe for sale e bay 3750 dollars

This is an amazing piece of equipment and
history. It is an Ames 7 1/4" Inch Swing
Engine Lathe No.00. It is believed to have
actually been used in the specialized
machinist "toolroom" where specialized tools
were designed and produced to build and
run the machines and forging equipment for
the manufacture of swords and arms during
the civil war period in the Springfield MA area.
It may be one of a kind, first in the run or
perhaps a prototype. The parts of the lathe
are indexed with numbers to facilitate
assembly and there is a wrench stamped
1864. It is very complete and was likely
powered by a overhead hydro-belt drive. The
counter-shaft drive assembly is not included
(just what is shown is included). The style
and associated paperwork on backer boards
appear to be original and of the mid 1800's
period. The condition is excellent with no
significant wear or damage although it has
not been tested due to its age and historic
interest. There is a very large grouping of
original accessories and attachments
included. The spare parts have surface rust
but no breaks or cracks. I have the original
massive steel table that is NOT included in
this auction. Total weight of lathe and parts is
estimated at 250-300lbs. The total length of
the lathe is 42". Please contact me with
questions and to discuss pick up
arrangements before purchase. Thank you!

What an great old lathe, with an fantastic
look.  The total length is 24 inches, and it is
12 inches high. (those are outside
dimensions)  The wheel that holds the
material in the lathe is about 5 1/4 inches. I
wrapped a piece of string around the different
pullies and it turned, the surprise is that I
figured how to do it; the operator must have
been quite tired at the end of the day. As you
can see it is in "as found" condition but every
thing seams to move and adjust as
designed, but it could sure use some TLC.  It
was designed to stand in a wooden slotted
stand which did not come with it.    It will have
a shipping weight of about 25 lbs.  Hopefully
the many pictures will show its condition.  I
see no manufacturers name anywhere.  I
also have a second piece of what I believe is
a machine from the 1880's to manufacture
watch parts as a seperate listing.
