Looking good.

It must be nice to wear a T shirt in the workshop.
I've been cleaning up a little surface grinder today; insulated trousers, thick shirt, jumper and padded waistcoat. I was considering a hat as well, but when I came into the house to get one, I was seduced by a cup of tea and a pie. Never did make it back to the shop.

You are making an excellent job of what looks like a nice lathe. The only reference to the make that I could find was this;

tha plate STB means Sociedade Tecnica Bremensis. A company that imported lathes from Europe to Brazil and closed its doors in 1945. It is a very rare machine.

Celso Ari, no need to apologise for your English, it is very good; and I don't speak a word of Portuguese!

Please keep us up to date with work on the lathe.

Hello Celso (and Brian),

sorry but that is completely wrong. Your lathe is not the STB from Brian's link, and in his case STB means 'Fabrique d'Horlogerie de Saint Blaise S.A, Saint-Blaise (Suisse).

I own a filing machine from STB, the sign in the casting is exactly the same, but the number is '20'.
If necessary I can make a picture to prove.

More so, maybe your lathe is a Bremensis (never heard that, but what do I know...). I now have to watch the video, somewhere Brian must have found the letters? So possibly there is a firm using the same abbreviation.

Kind regards
Hans

P.S. Ok, I have seen it. So  what remains now is that Brian's STB is not your STB. My apology...
