hi there, I had occasion to buy a vintage ATW lathe last year that was a steady runner in a home basement shop until the machinist who owned it passed away. It came with lots of tooling and was plug & play. I had to dismantle it a tad to remove it from the shop and I have it stored currently while I get my own new shop space organized so as to get it placed in and functional again. Below are some photos I took as I was preparing to remove the lathe. I have secured some reference manuals and stuff online but if anyone else has anything to link me to that would be appreciated also. This machine is around 100 years old already. My question relates to the gearbox arrangement utilized here. I have seen similar set-ups on old machines and some of them were transmissions from old automobiles or farm equipment..I suspect that is what I have here. Can anyone give me a positive ID from the pics provided ? Also, can anyone give me some pointers on using this rig effectively ? While I don't have access to view it again right at the moment I believe it is a simple 3 speed forward and one reverse, all in a "H" pattern tranny. Practically, what would I be looking at doing with it in tandem with the 4 speed cone pulley at the headstock and the quick-change gearbox so as to be using it properly and effectively ? Thanks in advance !
