Have Fun with it. Who made it doesn’t matter, who uses it does. Nice find. PS. if you are of a mind to be able to change speeds, I have a v-belt syst. with 3,4,&5 step pulleys gathering dust. Also, a 3/4 hp 4 pole motor turning at the shaft @ 1050 rpm (very heavy but functioning) Also a craftsman antique set up for grinder/polisher also gathering dust… I saw a lathe like this (somewhat) at a friends place…it’s only markings were stamped into the underside of the bed “Cincinnati Ohio” he painted it up and used it as his “beale type” system set up. (considerable welding was required to change the system to a standard 1 1/4” 12 TPI shaft if memory serves me.)
