Mechanical lathe

<p>Mechanical lathe.</p>

Mechanical lathe.

Mechanical lathe that rotated a piece of wood and rounded it with help from a cutting tool. This lathe comes from the turnery at Can Casadesús d'Arbúcies, founded in 1898, which produced quills and shuttles for the textile industry. The lathe was mounted with the original line shaft (beltings and pulleys), which were used to run the lathe and put it into operation.
