We don’t see these extra small turning machines any more, partly because watch making has all but disappeared and most parts are made by automated CNC equipment. I still use this type of lathe in my shop for making very small pins and screws for telescopes. This machine was made 100 years ago by W.D.Clement in Waltham, Ma, the American capital of watchmaking in the world.
