IMPROVED WOOD LATHE. The cut represents our Improved Wood Lathe designed for use with wooden shears or ways. The Head and Tail Stocks are extra heavy, making it impossible to spring and bind the bearings so they will heat (this being the fault of many lathes). The small pulley on the cone is of iron screwed on the spindle, the balance of cone being made of well seasoned cherry. The spindles have extra long bearings. With each Lathe are furnished 1 Face Plate, 1 pair of Centers, 2 Sockets for holding Rests, 4 Rests from 6 to 24 in. long. There are now upwards of eight hundred of these Lathes in use in the various wood shops throughout the country, and they are, as a rule, preferred to nearly all others. While somewhat higher in price than many others, the prices are, quality considered, very reasonable.
PATTERN MAKERS' LATHE. We also furnish the Pattern or Double Head Lathe for Pattern Making, Mouldings, and large work. These Lathes are provided with screws on both ends of the spindle, and an extra large Face Plate for the outer end of spindle. Screws for taking up the end wear are held in removable brackets. When these brackets are taken off and the outer end of the spindles are used, the wear is taken up by bringing the tail center against the inner end. 16 in., complete, $51.75; 20 in., complete, $66.00; 24 in., complete, $80.00.
