not for woodwork but still interesting

https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/...459275979.html

i think it could be used for wood but might not be a great idea

it looks like it has a cantilevered stand unless my eyes are tricking me

a very interesting machine anyway

It looks like a watch makers lathe. Options are there.

Wonder if the precision is still there.

It looks like the speed for the small parts is available.

Wonder if the precision is still there.
