I just got myself a project IXL which I believe is a W3 model.

Here are some pictures of the lathe still inside my car..

The lathe is missing several parts and I am struggling to find information bout it.

Is this really a W3? most pictures I found online have very different drive pulleys..

Does anyone have more information, or even pictures of a complete one?
