Is there anybody with a John Pickles & Son wood turning lathe of the early 1930s who would be willing to take some reference photographs for me as I believe the Wadkin RS lathe is based on them.
Does anyone have any information regarding this?
Also does anyone know the name of the foundry that produced the castings for Wadkin, and finally what year year did Wadkin start making the lathe bed leg out of fabricated sheet steel instead of cast iron (a picture would be appreciated).

Thanks in advance

Stan
