& John Barnes #5 metal lathe. Driven by the velocipede setup with 3 pedals. It’s it good shape overall. There is a crack in the flywheel, the seat post rod is missing, the oilers for the spindle are gone and one of the hangers for the seat support bar is damaged. There is also a lever missing on the compound slide. All in all pretty good for a 135+ year old girl. UPDATE: I found the seat support rod. The item “Antique W. F. &J.
