I picked it up in Hamilton Ontario from a high school shop teacher three years ago for $350 cad. I guess you could say i stole it I had an old New Hudson lathe made in NY before this one and before that had a 1913 Seneca Falls lathe. I moved and the Seneca was too big for my shop so I sold it and a #2 Van Norman mill for $1500. I wish I still had them both. This Myford Clone has made a lot of chips this year as i used it to machine parts for a couple of reciprocating hacksaws that a friend from Florida designed and we built them in August. I'll post some pictures.that looks really nice, did you get a fair deal on it?
Lathes UK has a section on Myford clones http://www.lathes.co.uk/myford-copies. Scroll down for a picture of a "Colt" lathe which looks identical to yours. In fact, the picture looks so much like yours, that if it wasn't for the fact that yours has a black and yellow belt change chart, and the one on the Lathes UK has a black and white chart, I would have thought that is is an actual photo of your lathe.Check out my Myford Clone lathe that came with Faceplate, 3 and 4 jaw, fixed and travel rests and an extra set of change gears for cuting threads which include the metric set Works awesome!
