Nice. I like the older machines. I have a Southbend 10", a Craftsman 6", a Reed 24" and a Wilson and Fuller 20". The Southbend is the only one working but its buried behind many boxes of tractor parts and equipment. The Wilson and Fuller (from 1888) may get donated to a museum because I don't think that I can fix it. I picked up an Atlas shaper last year and hope to restore it this winter. Good Luck, Rick

To me the tail stock is the dead give away. Looks like it's moving a 100mph just standing there.

My fault. If you look at the third photo you posted of the lathes. In this photo the tail stock looks like it is a very streamlined. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  :smilewink:
