ManSon miniature metal lathe. This item was most recently used as a display, but it had previously been used in a model builders shop many, many years ago. The lathe is fully functional and it operates very smoothly. It’s not super powerful, so small non-ferrous metals would be appropriate for use. It includes a 1 3/4 inch chuck and the accessories shown in the photo. There are four tiny brass shims, which I believe, go with the chuck. Pretty neat little machine. Some notes on condition. Electrical cord will eventually need to be replaced. The tiny rubber belt had been repaired. It functions well, but it is old and should be replaced. Please see the last image in photo album. Couple of spots and an area in the back had been filled and painted over. Possibly the location of a electrical nameplate? The letter “L” of Los Angeles is missing on the front marking. Dimension: 11″ x 3 5/8″ x 6 5/8. Item weight: 6 lb. Please, no best offers.
