Precision lathe

Precision lathe: “Neumann” made, Belt drive, Purchased on February 15th, 1940, 3,800 yen.

NEUMANN Co. sounds like a German company. However, the company' name isn't found in the books: (1) The book that covers main machine tool makers in Germany before World War 1. (2) The overseas machine tool maker list that was published in 1955. It is supposed that the company was not a big machine tool maker when it was purchased.
