Identifying model of Lodge + Shipley

My employer got for free a 12 in Lodge and Shipley. It must be 80
years old and after a day of cleaning he can't find the model #. WHere
would the # be located? Or is there somewhre with pictures of these
old machines?
Thanks
Ken

If there is no I.D. plate on the machine your only hope is to find someone who can recognize the features of your machine. Unfortunately it seems L&S didn't use differing serial number series for different models. Good luck.

The number on mine is between the way v's on the back right, behind the tail stock. # 8003
I'd be interested in parts if it is like the one I have, the pictures are somewhere in the drop box. Probably under L&S, LS, SW

My reference shows 1920 machines begining with serial #25725 so yours may be really really old.

Ours was 28725. Did y'all have some sort of murcery relay down near the motor? Boss took it off even though it seemed to be working once we figured out what it was. I'd never seen or heard of one before
