Thanks so much for everyone’s replies. I looked up the serial no. And it appears its 1947 46-230. 11”.

I went ahead and stripped most all to bare metal and repainted. I’m not real sure how to operate the tailtock. I will need to buy a live center for the tailstock. It has a 932, 4-step pulley. So I’ll need to find a match somehow for the motor. I’m thinking a nova g3 chuck too? I probably shouldn’t trust the tools so will likely need new ones for bowls and such. I’ll need to figure how to sharpen those as well. Not sure what else I need.

This will be a journey.
