I have recently rescued this piece of history from a dirt floor shed that she lived in for the last 28 years. I have torn her apart and I'm in the process of rebuilding it from the ground up. I would really appreciate any Information about this machine.

It looks as though you're doing a great job rebuilding that lathe. Keep your posts coming and welcome to the forum.

Thanks everyone! I was looking for a small hobby lathe and stumbled on this one for a hundred bucks and figured I better jump on it!

It looks like the porter Cable Co. copied every detail of a Hendy lathe!

Made alittle more progress this weekend, bearings in the motor counter shaft were toasted and the counter shaft was also worn because of the back bearings. I did so TIG welding to correct the shaft so I can get the machine up and running then I can make a replacement shaft.
