If anyone has information or parts for AMES lathes please post the information here, as correct information is hard to come by. Thanks! ~MetalMan1309

Not sure of model.
It's numbered 1510
Takes 1am collets.

The numbers on the headstock is what an electronic tach measured for speeds.
It's a bit fast and I've been thinking of a treadmill motor conversion for it.

i have this B.C. Ames co. carriage assembly i picked up a few years ago to make a vertical slide to do some milling on my Myford lathe.
i have since purchased a grizzly mill and am no longer going to build with it.

oldboy, could you send me the with and length of the lower assembly of the lower section, and or more pictures? I am in search of an Ames compound and the information would be quite helpful. Thanks! ~MetalMan
