  1. Looks like a Le Blond of some type. Tail stock, shape of the bed, carriage controls.
    The cross slide without a compound and no lead screw indicates production lathe. Some kind of stops near the head stock and collet chuck enforce this thought.
    There is something about the cross slide controls I don’t recognize. Some kind of a dial ahead of the cross feed control.
    Lovely clear picture, I’m guessing WW2. Uniform like clothes. Maybe a military facility.
