Looks like an old Southbend with a Lima drive .The Lima armature ,obviously from Lima Ohio built what they called over arm adaptors to convert old line shaft machines from previously line shaft driven .They just got the proper  sized motor and coupled it to a Ford Model A transmission.With a stepped vee belt pulley and the gears they could have many speeds .I've got a later Lima drive on one of my lathes circa 1912 .

I got a craftsman 12 x 36 gear change lath, it's really an atlas. I found reciepts in tool boxes dated in the early 50's, I didn't get here till 1957. Also got a 1965 series one Bridgeport with some tooling. I just ain't smart enough to use it, self taught, I did learn how to cut threads.

You can pick up some tricks on the internet .I'm self taught also but my dad was a tool and die maker at one time .That plus I've been around metal working machinery about all my life so it comes easy for me .Just think it through before you make a cut,it's not a race .It's easy to take it off,it's quite another thing to put it back on .

Neat thing about a Logan is they use a variable pulley deal like a snowmobile drive allowing infinitely any speed .

That Sidney was a fore runner of Monarch and built like a battle ship .That one is big enough to turn a drive shaft .

It would depend on what type collet nose the Craftsman/Atlas has .Could be either number  2 or number 3 Morse taper or 5c collets .On the MT style they thread onto the drawbar with internal threads ,the 5c has external threads . I'm not certain what #3 MT has but #2 uses 3/8" 24 .
Number 2 MT only goes to about 1/2" ,also used on model M Bridgeport mills .5C goes up to I think 1 1/8 ".
