    Hello...recently i just bought this old vintage lathe. I did some work on it so it can be used safely and i will take more care of it.

    I didn't find any usefull info on the internet about this lathe...i dont know if its bad or its that antique.

    If you can help me with more information, i appreciate. I really think this was a pedal lathe...i cant help the feeling, if thats true, i will make it a pedal lathe because i love those. :D

    Some pictures with the lathe are here http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/showthread.php?p=298379#post298379 . The title on it is G. Karger Berlin 0.

    PS : The motor and some of the things on it are my personal improvement.

    Nice find! If the ways are in good shape it should be a fine piece of shop machinery.
