Come to find out, the lathe isn't a "Cincinnati"! That's where it was built. The machine is a Rahn-Larmon. Built in the early 30s at the latest, as that's when the company changed its' name. One of the things that I DID find out was that it weighs approx 5500 lbs! :shock:

Well, I guess the good news is that it's not going to move around a lot on you. :mrgreen:

Does it all work? How about the carriage? Does it travel OK?

Cheers,
