My latest find is this late 30's Boice-Crane 46" Gap-bed lathe. This one is rather special with what looks to be the original paint (complete with labels), tail stock, tool rests and extra spindles. This is the first I've seen with metal legs and it's pretty much a user (after a little clean-up).

I also just received a Boice Crane lathe but mine is not quite as compete as yours. I've been looking for info on it, but it seems to be scarce. Can you shed any light on headstock screw size, tail stock size and/or anything else. I'd say we have the same model. The picture is just like mine.

Thanks and have a great day,
