My own lathe is, quite literally, from the '20's, and I don't mean next year. I forget the make and model; it's been in storage for a long time since I can't fit it in the shop. Weighs a solid "ton" for the size, but is worn and sloppy as heck. I can still get good parts from it, if I'm willing to take my time and cut-measure-cut. Someday I'll try and get it tuned up, but that's not likely to be any time soon. A small CNC mill would be nice.
