Baldwin was an early maker (1868) of a wide line of wood and metal working lathes that were foot powered. They also offered scroll saws, circular saws and a hand planer designed for metal.
Here is a nice short bed metal lathe.The pitman arm and crank have been replaced.
This lathe looks to be from factory made parts (bed, headstock, tailstock, flywheel) that was mounted on a “craftsman” made wooden stand. The headstock pulley is missing so a pattern will have to be made and sent to Cattail for casting. Note the fine pin stripting that is still visible.
Note an old style door spring that was installed at some point to help position the flywheel.
More to come!
