At least, that's what some guys at Practical Machinist claim
. The scoop:
- Yes, it's a Barnes lathe, as I originally guessed. The model is a #5, round-belt style.
- It's much earlier than I guessed. They're saying 1876-1885.
- What I'd thought was an upgrade to a V-belt pulley may actually be the original round belt pulley. These apparently pre-date flat belts.
