About The Catalog of Holtzapffel Lathes

[image]The Catalog of Holtzapffel Lathes details the provenance and specifications of 2,557 Holtzapffel lathes, including condition and configuration of each outfit, photos, sale information, location* and more. You'll also find a complete Holtzapffel history, including biographies, genealogy, a timeline of notable dates, factory addresses, factory signatures, and other documents. Also included are photos, trade catalogue descriptions, bibliography, glossary of terms, and links to related resources.

In 2008 and 2009 we attempted to build this project, however we did not garner enough support to go forward. If you are aware of any public or private grants that might support this research and publication, please contact us.

* Note: Holtzapffel lathe owners' privacy is assured: for current owners, no names or other private information will be listed and until the lathe changes ownership only the country where the lathe currently resides is displayed.
