Newly unpacked 2005 Lathemaster 9x21 (? i think) Lathe

Machine sat 3 years in original crate in garage in Puget Sound humidity, then 2 in garage in Ohio year-round weather. Just moved into warm dry basement workshop.

Nothing seems to be stuck; motor spindle turns freely, so does left side gear assembly and headstock spindle. Leadscrew spindle doesn't spin freely but it turns easily. Toolpost slides easily, tailstock slides and feeds easily.

Front view from gear end. Barely visible over chuck guard in background is my present 10 year old Grizzly 9x19 metal lathe.

Front view from tail end.

Headstock and model number plate:
