The 5121 had a variable drive, a reeves system similar to the Yates American, the basic lathe is very sturdy
with not much that can go wrong. Some of these had a 1-1/8” 8 thread per inch headstock which is a
standard b-7 thread pitch, but is no longer common for most lathe accessories. Wish I were a few thousand
miles closer. Hope someone can save this old lathe.
