Yup, pretty close to my shiny version. The tailstock looks a bit different. The cross slides are out there, but, quite pricy. Maybe I will finally get mine running oneday.

I bought mine from an estate of a watch and clock maker/repairman. I have a complete set of collets, pot chucks, and all sorts of mandrels that I assume were for buffing and polishing. Along with the lathe I got everything in his shop. I have raw spring stock for days, I have itty bitty parts for watches and clocks that didn't require a battery, I have gears and pinions, I even have one of those super duper parts washers ( remember the green glass jars) Anybody needs watch shop tooling contact old Cletus at BR549 or PM me  :lolb:

I guessed it was the BR549 Nashville county music band, hence Lucky Dog recording co. Did not know of Junior Samples.

Did y'all know that our own Zee has a sister in law that was one of those hot babes on Hee Haw . Don't remember which one, but, they were all knockouts. Now if T favors her sister, I can see why fruits, vegetables, and T distract our boy  :lolb:

Picked up a few collets, and a storage box for the little girl.   

She needs a fitting name!     Cletus!!?
