So, thanks to suggestions and help from you guys we managed to get my lathe home in one piece. The seller, my padre, and I got it done in an afternoon along with some great discussion and a few laughs. Here she is. The seller did quite a bit of cleanup, and I’m excited to dig in and do the rest. It’ll be fun learning to run one of these. I have a little info on this machine, but does anyone happen to have an actual Select Machine Tool manual? Sounds like it is a pretty typical Taiwanese made mid size lathe from the late 70s early 80s.

Congrats, I believe it's very similar to the Jets and Encos of that era. First one I have seen with a "lip" around the outside of the apron-
Very stylish!

Congrats! Looks like a great first lathe. I was going to say it looks a lot like an Enco of that vintage. Maybe a manual for one of those.

This looks close, so I ordered it up, we’ll see.
