    Hi All. Thank you for the accept. Bought an old lathe and i am trying to get any info i can get. Please help. Does anybody even know this lathe? The lathe is an Autoalpine 150 with a Morelli motor and pump. Not sure how to post photos but have some on hand

    Does it look anything like the lathe in this link? Is there a data plate on the machine that
    indicates where it was made?

    You'll need to post a few times before you can post pictures. Then you can use Photobucket.

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. Different from the one on the photo but it's made in Italy. On the door of the base it has "Nettuno NS 150"

    In the lower right of the screen is a button "Upload a File" next to the "Post Reply" button. This is used to upload a picture as well as e.g., PDF files. Not the best working on a button.

    Click on the button, a screen will open which will allow you to select a picture from a folder on the computer.

    If you have a phone, then I am not sure of the steps since I do not use a phone for pictures.

    The preferred method is to post directly to the site and not thru a link to another site. The reason is, if or when the link is broken we lose the valuable info you have posted here. Thank you.

    Whatever it is, it's a good looking lathe: very nice job on the re-build. Are you using it yet?

    Hi

    Thank you for the compliment. Much appreciated..

    Only made 2 or 3 cuts today. Seems great. Will check tomorrow to see how accurate it is. Just did a quick check today with a micrometer on different spots on the steel i cut and got the same reading every time...hoping for the best

    GE, here's a photo of a lathe from Google described as a Nettuno Pasquino. While not identical, it looks very similar to yours,
    particularly in some details. Perhaps Pasquino, which was also a lathe maker bought out Nettuno at some time. There is info on
    Pasquino here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/pasquino/
    You might send an email to tony@lathes.co.uk to see if he knows more about them. I imagine he'd be interested in your lathe.

    Your 'tooling' is a "Box Tool". It mounts in the tailstock and as you crank it into the work it turns two diameters, if you have both tools set. It's more of a Turret Lathe tool than an engine lathe tool. They (box tools) are the very devil to get set right. You have to adjust one cutting tool and two roller bearings for each diameter.
