    Does anyone know of a museum-type workshop or similar display which would like a treadle-operated lathe? It was made by C J Holland & Co, Kirkstone Road, Leeds, and looks like this:

    It's essentially complete but one of the cogs has a couple of teeth missing, so would need repair or replacement of that cog if it was intended to be used.

    Since the photo was taken it has been in semi-open storage with a plastic sheet over it, so may have deteriorated a bit. Ideally I'd like it to go to a suitable museum or similar, either permanently or on long-term loan. It needs to be moved from its present storage by mid-April and will need a hi-ab for transport. Currently in south Nottinghamshire.

    Any interest?

    Thanks,
    Phil
