Small Lathe in the Workshop

A new/old tool for the Playful Plans workshop is my tiny vintage (ca: 1940's Dunlap?) lathe with it's terrific cast details. It's miniscule 22-1/2" length weighs in at a whopping 11 pounds of cast iron.

With a single pulley it will need an appropriate motor and variable speed control and a replacement twist or handwheel missing from the tailstock. It's bomb-proof construction and barely 12" between pins makes it perfect for all sorts of turned parts for my wooden toys. That's a 6" rule in front of the lathe.. it really is a beautiful baby!
