Sheffield built treadle lathe
Authored by: Anonymous on 11:53AM UTC - Thursday, 13 March 2008

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your reply, and your interest in the lathe.  Photographs of the lathe have been examined by a local lathe historian and the lathe dated between 1870 and 1900.  Details, and photographs, of the lathe can be found at

So, the John Henry Bunting I found in the 1901 census is not the maker of this lathe.

With regard to selling the lathe, I do not consider it mine to sell.  I am merely the current custodian of a machine that has already survived longer than I will.  I will preserve the lathe as best I can until a more suitable custodian can be found. 


Kind regards,  Brian
