Late 1800's

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.
