Bullard Vertical Turret Lathe 24" 1901


eMail NOT Working
A couple of years ago I acquired this Bullard 24" Vertical Turret Lathe. It is supposedly built in 1901. Does anyone have any manuals or other literature for this series of mills? There seem to be a fair amount of on line or auction site literature for the various VTL series that followed this one.

Nice machine ! I used to run one of those years ago. It was a beast. I remember it grinding away drilling 3 inch holes with a spade bit through a steel pump casting about the size of the piece you are working on.
