"Exe" treadle lathe - stock code 2589

Somebody has gone to a great deal of time and trouble in restoring this rather beautiful example of the well-regarded 1920s "Exe" lathe made, unsurprisingly, by the Exe Engineering Co Ltd of Exeter. It has been stripped to the last nut and bolt and relacquered in a very handsome dark blue. All the steel work has been burnished up and it comes complete with chucks, faceplate and centres.
