Default Ehrlich/IXL Lathe

Picked up this lot tonight so expect lots of questions.

Going to be a while before I'm making chips because there's a list of house and yard projects ahead of it on the list, but I'll be tipping away at getting it setup in its new home over the coming weeks and months.

The pillar drill ended up jumping in the van with it. The two motors look to be the originals from the lathe and drill and have been upgraded along the way.

Best guess on the lathe is 1930s and the drill is 1987 I think

That's what swung me this way. That blue toolbox is about 15kgs of chucks, cutters, centres etc.

I think I need to up my measuring tools and maybe a toolpost but otherwise there's a lot of tooling in there to get me going. First job after I make a space for it in the shed is to quantify what came with it

Like a kid at Christmas I've space made and everything but the bed unloaded from the van. Mrs is still in bed!

Fly cutter/4 carbide face milling thing
12mm carbide tools
3 carbide boring bars
5 end mills
Er25mt2 chuck plus 16 collets
Slitting saw Arbor
Er30mt3? Chuck plus 8 collets
3 MT adapters
Steady rest
Inch mt3 drill chuck
Half inch mt3 drill chuck
Dozen taps and dies plus holders, thread gauges
9 change gears plus fitted ones
Oil can
Myford style milling table
Blank faceplate 185mm
4 jaw faceplate chuck 220mm
3 jaw 130mm chuck
16 HSS tools
1 plain centre
2 live centres
1 4 tooth wood centre?
21 drill bits
Handful of hand tools
Small cantilever box
Reamer?
Adjustable square
X/Y table for the drill

What else do I need? I'm thinking centre drill, precision level and maybe a toolpost setup?

What's that thing that's been hammered like a chisel on top but has a very non chisel other end?

Can't see markings on the motor but it has two capacitors and a magnetic switch, plus the 15 amp plug and the size of it makes me think it'll do all this machine could need.

Looks like a nice assortment of tools to get started!

That mystery tool is puzzling. I guess it will probably end up being a punch to tap out whatever it fits for you.

But the small end with the groove reminds me of a reamer type tool.

It could have been a straight fluted drill, shop made to a specific size, that’s now been made into a centre punch. Or maybe someone thought that clearance would let someone see to line the punch up better?

Looks like a good starting point for sure!

I don't think it is. I'd assume if it was a proper gap bed that the bottom of the gap would be machined for the removable section to sit in a fixed position, this is rounded cast down in the gap. I think it's just a bed that's a little short

Never noticed that, technically that would be a gap bed, it just doesn’t have a removable section to fill in the gap. Could be handy for some types of work, or a pain for others.

What it may mean is real short jobs may need longer tools to reach.
