Default Lathe: Want information on your lathe?

Here is a great web site about lathes, when, where, and how long they were built. I just stumbled on it by accident when I was trying to find information on a G. Matheys drill press I own. You might want to save it in your favorites in case you loose it and you are looking for information on a lathe 5 years down the road you run on to at a auction or CL and want information on it.http://www.lathes.co.uk/

Thanks, I thought my 13" South Bend was from the 40's. This site says it's 1919, I'm surprised.

John that's great Thanks. I found a picture identical to my 10" Sheldon #L335. It is a 1938 Sheldon with high type overhead countershaft and motor with a 38" bed. Ron

WOW I knew my Hendey was old but there it is 1921. Any Hendey owners out there? I know this, anyone who has run a Hendey won't go back to a South Bend.
