Here are the remains of a Lorch Watchmaker’s Lathe. This was a 6mm, but part of the headstock is missing and the locking lever is missing. The base is there but it does not fit the shaft that is clamped onto the headstock body. Tailstock is there also but it will not tighten down onto the bed. The locking lever on the top of it is missing. It is labeled Lorch. The T-rest is in good shape and it all works and locks properly. But it is not labeled with any name. The base is in good shape but the locking lever is a little long and will not clear the bottom of the base. I don’t think it belongs to the base. Then there are 7 bits that may be centers or drivers or ferrules. One piece looks like part of a wheel chuck. Another piece maybe to hold round gravers in a toolholder for a crosslide. And lastly there are 11 collets and one shellac chuck. These are all 6mm. The sizes are: 04, 06, 07, 10, 14, 18, 22, 24, 26, 38, and the last is either 44 or 45. All but 3 are marked “Lorch”. The 26 and 38 are Wolf-Jahn. The 44 has no markings but “might” be a Boley. The shellac chuck is marked Lorch. These all have to be cleaned with scotch-brite and washed to be made useable again.
