      Victor Wood Lathe

      Thought to be one of the smaller lathes made by J.A.Fay & Egan Co. of Cincinnati in the United States, this rather unusual "Victor" wood lathe had a centre height of around three inches (80 mm) and took 20 inches (510 mm) between centres.
      Running in long plain bronze bearings the headstock spindle carried a single V-shaped drive pulley (obviously intended for drive by a round leather rope from a treadle stand) with, on the outer end (and possibly not original) a 3-step pulley cone pulley whose steps were left un-machined. However, as the outboard pulley end was threaded it may originally have had some form of bowl-turning attachment.
      Mounted at the headstock end on a substantial round plinth - around which it could be rotated - the bed was also supported beneath the tailstock. Quite how this arrangement was meant to function is unclear but it might, perhaps have been to accommodate some sort of accessory like a fret-saw attachment.
      Should any reader have a small "Victor" lathe or literature about them, the writer would be interested to hear from you.
