How To Make An 8 Inch Bench Lathe In The School Shop

By Various.

When they published this back in 1920, South Bend Lathe Co. was just 14 years old, but already a major force in machine tool manufacture. This booklet was aimed at schools to which South Bend hoped they had already supplied one of their lathes, and could supply castings, if the school couldn’t make its own patterns and pour the metal (have times changed?). What you get is detail drawings for making a very neat 8” wood turning bench lathe which looks robust enough to be adapted to metal turning if you are clever; however I rather doubt if South Bend still supply the castings! 64 landscape format pages. Paperback.
