Default My new old lathe

Thought I'd share some pics of a Shepard 10" lathe that I picked up. It was made about 1915 and it still works good. Probably works better than me since I've never used a lathe before!
Doesn't have a large selection of thread sizes, especially since i'm missing 1 of the 2 spindle gears. It does have auto carriage and cross feed. Odd spindle center size-different odd size for the tail stock, but MT fit both close enough for use. Spindle threads are odd also, 1 1/2" by12TPI.
It's been a blast learning about lathes and I think I'm hooked now.
Pete

Well good for you. There are several, well many of us here at SFT that are in the beginner stages of this addiction and having a blast with it.

Uh, could you make the pics a little larger? Tired old eyes you know.

Love it. Welcome to lathe ownership. I've now spent time and money to learn to make a ton of stuff. However the 2 things I made that actually amount to any savings was a brass fitting for a vw and parts for the lathe itself And a go cart axle fitting. But, I had fun doing it. I always look for ways to make things.
