    I would call that a treadle operated lathe. But why is he on the back side with that grin?!

    I guess it’s because this is a two man lathe.
    One man provides the power and the other does the machining.

    The overall quality of it is overkill for a treadle lathe.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    Alphabet figures on the lower left tell me all there is to know, goofy grin included.
    I see little chance of producing a feedrate or significant depth of cut. A single treadle might [did] power sewing machines, anything similar had compound or duals.
