I’ve an old cowells 90 me for small clock stuff, I guess you guys don’t have them on your side of the pond ?
David, this cowells machine runs in the headstock plain , no ball or roller bearings , no cone bearings , it is however very very accurate and precise, it’s a lot more work making them this way and honing the bearing surfaces properly which is why not many are made this way anymore, it also would probably mean a new spindle if wear became an issue, however if made properly that’s not going happen for a long long time !
