Oliver Wood Lathe Model 52-B
by Clarence MacDonald
I have just obtained an Oliver wood turning lath from a wood working shop at a local high school. It has a 220 volt motor with flyball governor control.
Machine Number 52-B
Serial number 36209
(same number stamped on bed,end of rail,as a shop number)
It has a mount for a outboard turning,along with the tool rest stand. It is supplied with several tool rests and face plates.
Sorry I have no photos as yet. Can you supply any info about this machine?
