Does anyone recognize this lathe?
#7
  


I'd like to volunteer to teach a class at our local MakerSpace.  Snooping on their website, I found a picture of their lathe.  Does anyone know this brand and model?  I'm curious about the sizes and whether my chucks would fit, for example.

Thanks in advance.

I'm thinking Central Machinery aka Harbor Freight, but I could be wrong. It's not really a good picture.

Yep I agree HF lathe.  I used one for 6 months and although it worked OK I still did not like how it was not VS instead of the shift on the fly.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I agree, Harbor Freight or similar. My dad has a HF.

Looks like an older model that HF(not the gem 34706) used to sell.
