Scale model of a massive enclosed headstock roll turning lathe produced by Mesta Machine out of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania sometime prior to 1919.. 

Mesta roll turning lathes were used for manufacturing huge steel rolls for rolling mills.  Variable speed electric motor coupled through a set of enclosed mechanical gears allowed for a variety of turning speeds.  Based on photos from the era, machinists typically had to stand on pieces of scrap wood to be able to reach the operator's position.

Other items in photos shown for size comparison - Not included.

Scale model is for display and operating model railroad load / modelling and is not a child's toy. 

For use by railroad modelers age 14 years minimum.
