Hi everyone

My neighbour has just found his great Grandad's lathe and would like to know if I can do it up /clean it up?

Would anyone know about these little lathes? The only name on it is GRIMSHAW and it's made of brass I've looked on the interweb but couldn't find much information so I'm putting it to the collective

I've put some pictures in my album as I'm not sure how to put them in the post here. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks in advance

Could Grimshaw be the name of the owner?

Abebooks have an original catalogue at £85

May be the supplier as they refer to GRIMSHAWS being manufactures and importers.

130 pages, clear black and white illustrations throughout. Grimshaws were manufacturers and importers of Tools and Appliances for Watch and Clock Makers, Jewellers, Silversmiths, Opticians, Telegraph and Electricak Engineers and Instrument Makers, Etc. A very detailed catalogue for these tools, includingSwiss Wheel Cutting Machines for cutting flat, bevel and skew gears and several pages relating to Lorch's Precision, Pattern and Watchmaking Lathes with their many accessories. An uncommon catalogue. Cloth-backed boards, the original boards have been expertly remounted with new endpapers. Some loss to original boards before the relaying mainly at the front fore-edge; otherwise a very good copy. Size: 11 3/8" x 8 5/8". Bookseller Inventory # 003769
