|Commercial Treadle Lathe from about 1900|
The second picture shows a shop built lathe from about the same period. The lathe was originally a treadle lathe but has been upgraded to belt drive. On the right you can see a boring attachment (for making holes - not uninteresting), and on the left is a nice hand cranked water cooled grind stone. Until relatively recently these lathes were used for the commercial production of cart wheels.
