Default Help ID'ing a lathe!

Bought a lathe a few yrs back from a guy who was a machinist by trade. He had ground a number of the surfaces for cosmetic purposes (it IS sharp looking in person!). In doing so he took off any make/model markings. At the time I didn't care. It had a diamond bit and cut great. Now I want to sell and would prefer giving the next buyer a name.

I realize it's a BIG favor. But is there anyone whom I can e-mail a pic of to ID it? File is tool large to upload here and my camera can't lower resolution...

Would really appreciate any help. Thanks!

It's weird... It looks like a cobra lathe but not like anything they currently carry. Perhaps an older version? Check out http://www.teamcobra.com/cobra/comlathes.htm to see what I mean...

Yeah, I agree that it looks like the Cobra to me from eveything I can see on it.

It's an old Reedy lathe, manufactured in the mid 90's ....
