    Default I think it belongs to a Lorch

    I bought a box of stuff at an online auction to get a Hercus 9" fixed steady, as I dug through the box I found a hand wheel/crank, mounting shaft arrangement at the bottom which I did not recognise.
    Having hunted through U Tube and Google, I've found out that it is the hand powered crank for a Lorch watchmakers lathe, the type that clamps onto a bench and the cutting tools are hand held
    This thing is nicely made, an antique in good condition and is no use to me, But I can't / don't want to throw it into the bin
    I would be quite happy for it to go to a good home that had the rest of the machine, maybe the person who bought a box of stuff at an auction and got a mystery unpowered little lathe?
    I would happily post a photo but I've only been a member for 12 years,
    made 2 posts, but have not yet graduated to the visual technologies
