I've bought a second-hand lathe to try woodturning. Question 1. What make is the lathe, in case I need spares? there are no markings on it at all. About 1m long, cast iron hollow rectangular pylon at head end, twin round rails to which tailstock and tool support clamp. Twin square rails as a base. Motor on hinged plate so belt drive is self-tensioning (which is neat).It has a 3/4" x 10tpi thread on the nose(?) to which I'd mount a chuck.
Q2. The faceplate that came with it has threaded holes on the radii....M6 thread fits them. I'm wondering, why threaded?
