These were made with different names for different tooling houses that sold machinery. Here is a Bolton Tools 12 x 36 that looks a lot like it. The Jet 12 x 36 is comparable also. Regardless, you may not find parts for a Lincoln, but the other names will work. Also, the Taiwan lathes were better quality than Chinese so that's a plus.

I don't see a treading dial in the pictures. You might want to see if it's available.

I'd take it for under $500. , is what you see what you get? No stand , missing parts.
