WEILER LZ 280 S home

This is my Weiler LZ 280 lathe. Formerly it was used in a hospital in the neighbourhood. My old lathe was a Weiler of the same type, but that one was used in an technical school. I found the second one at a machinetrader and could swap the lathes for a certain amount. Although it needed some cleaning, there was very little bedwear. The paint is stil original.
While oiling it the first time I accidentaly tore a seal apart. To replace it I dismantled the headstock.
