This lathe is a cast iron, 12" x 36" lathe sold by Craftsman in the 1930's. The only model/part number I can find is stamped LC-XXXX (various 4 digit numbers) on each component (headstock, tailstock, rest, etc.). The headstock bearings have been replaced with single line Poland high performance 6205Z bearings. Its a very simple, very heavy lathe. If you might have any additional information, please let me know.
From Tony Griffiths excellent lathe site, and in particular the bit on early Craftsman lathes, I know ... The heaviest, and best, of the 'first-edition' Craftsman wood-turning lathes was the 12-inch model. With a shipping weight of 97 lbs and a 9/16" bore, No. 2 Morse taper headstock spindle (properly threaded at both ends) running in sealed-for-life ball bearings, this was a usefully strong and workman-like machine. The impression would have been reinforced by the proper barrel lock on the tailstock and the provision, as standard, of both 3 1/2" and 9" faceplates that were threaded to fit both the left and right-hand sides of the spindle.
Attached to this lathe is a 1750 1/2 HP Baldor motor. The bench is a based on a simple / common design that has worked for me in the past (router table, workbench, etc.) and built from scrap wood (birch plywood, pine, mahogany trim) that I've had stored in various places around the shop. It is weighed down by an extra 120lbs of sand enclosed in the lower carcass. Someday I hope to build a drawer to store the rest of my lathe tools, faceplates, etc. but for now, I'm fairly pleased with the results.
Everything else. :)
