Looks like a platter or shallow bowl lathe. Large faceplate.

Without a large faceplate, it might have been (or could be) a bowl lathe.

No idea on the bearing as to weight and thrust ability but it looks
ample. That really tells.

Lots of good tools so it seems. Is this a 3 phase shop ? maybe!

I have 3 phase high voltage (370) in my metal shop. Wood end is all
130v or 110v depending on the age not voltage in the wall.

That's not a lathe--it's a honking big disc sander.

was mentioned in the description

my eyes initially just passed right over this lathe

could still be a bowl lathe with the right attachment to the face
plate

the lathe looks very beefy

Ok guys and gals - look at the entire shop. Look at picture 9.
Notice to the right side is the work holding iron. It won't fit
the spindle lathe that it sits near - to tall for the center. The big
one is just right.

Now notice the holes in the rim. Those look like dog holes to put
clamps to lock down a work piece onto the large wood unit.

Now look at 10. Metal. vac at the bottom. Sanding.

Perhaps for holding table tops.

It might be just that - the pie top tables - get the most out
then on to the carvers.

Or more likely in the modern shop the bezels and other names used
that adorn the walls and between the ceiling and hung lamps.

Doesn't have to be a 1200 pound block of wood for a big bowl!
But those are on such setups like this - with massive pillow-blocks
and thrust bearing.

I suppose someone could e-mail the vendor and ask.
