I was trolling about here and found a Canuck twin screw lathe. May be an aberration done up here.
That Barnes lathe http://www.lathes.co.uk/barnes/index.html looks very similar to mine except for the custom cabinet. Even to the threading chart on the leg. Maybe mine is a Barnes. I will have to look again.

I am very suspicious of the name I used in the first post. The lathe doesn't match the Rockford/RockportRockford info on lathes.uk.co at all.
