christof's lathe

Christof's new/old lathe is a beauty! It's super old; from the late 20's. It's a 9 inch, but has nothing in common with the later 9" lathes like mine. It's wider bed appears to be similar to a heavy 10" SB. He even got an old catalog from the 40's with the lathe and he was able to get the original feet for it as well. The silent chain drive would be awesome to see in it's original mounting place (similar to this one). I can't wait to see this turning...
