Hi All, a conversation I was having prompted this post - I'm curious about how many of the older watchmakers lathes are still in service. One of mine for example, was built within the first 3 years of WW lathe production - American Watch Tool Webster/Whitcomb Lathe serial # 7252 sold April 16 1892. Although its no longer my primary lathe (that is a 1946 Derbyshire 8mm WW) it still gets used often. I also have a Lorch 6mm lathe, but that is essentially undateable but is likely an earlier one. Kris.
