Cataract Bench Lathe Info Needed

I am restoring a Cataract Bench lathe that I just got. Anybody in this group have any info on this lathe? Is there someone out there with one or know anyone with one? Thank you. Jim

I've had a number of these, the one currently in my shop needs to have the headstock bearings replaced and the spindle hard-chromed and re-ground, but it's still a nice machine:

Do you have any specific questions?
