Interesting.

Well worth it if it needs little repair.

Theoretically . Once you work out the metric feeds you will know the imperial.

Do you have work for the lathe?
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

This is my first lathe and I want to learn how to use it :)
No work for current time. It is sitting in my home now.
I plane to disassemble and renew it.
It will be hard but I can do It.
I will post it later in separate topics.

Absolute newbie. Bought a China lathe and already thinking I want a power crossfeed. This is a 7"X14" and I hope to recreate a high school machine shope project, and make a meat hammer.

My Dalton 7, made around 1919. Still going strong, except the OEM 5” chuck finally bit the dirt- jaws finally wore out and can’t hold better than .010” concentricity. Can’t complain as they served well for 100 years.

Forgot to add the pics…

Here, turning down an old turn of the century 6” double flange wheel. Made four of them to act as casters on my turntable.

That is a very nice looking machine!

Looks to be in very nice shape.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
