Can anyone give me more info on a 10x36" very old (serial# 003xx) Seneca Falls lathe? It was given to me, so the price was right. I'm a recent convert from the foreign mini-lathe. I really yearned for a good old heavy USA lathe. I've been shopping around for a South Bend Model A 9" but then this came along. I'm really impressed, its in great shape, very little wear. No gear change though. I've been having a blast mounting it on a bench, designing a motor drive in the South Bend style. How would this lathe compare to the old South Bends? Can I get parts for it anywhere? Anyone else have and use one like it? It seems so similar to the South Bend I wonder if they can share any parts?
