Verry cool, Harry! The handwheel on the end of the leadscrew through me off, as to it having auto feed capabilities. Never seen an old lathe, here in the states with one there.
It kinda reminds me of a vintage South Bend lathe, made in South Bend Indiana here in the states. The first South Bend, was made by the founders (Twins born in Ireland) in 1908. They don't make them like they use too! You can't even get a machine tool built in the U.S. anymore. The company I work for sells manual machines imported by Taiwan and the CNC machines come from Korea.
