A tool I really needed to make small screws
Okay something I probably won't use very often, but the price was right. My son-in-law bought it for $100 to keep it out of the scrap pile and didn't really have a place for it, he knew I was looking for a
lathe with quick change and ask if I had room for it. It is a little bigger (okay a lot) than what I was looking for but it will do especially for making those special 5-40 machine screws I need
First order of business : Clean it up its been sitting for years and not well protected from the weather however it is not all rusty, just dirty and gummy.
Second: Rewire the motor hopefully for 220v
Third: Repair or make a lock for the Backgear Lever.
OH Crap I need to move my Thermometer.

The building has been expanded to its limit especially with the 6' high walls, and the cost of a new one is ah well outta sight , I'll just live with it.

You probably will not be turning too many pen blanks, but it sure will handle everything else.

Your mind works completely different than mine, Frank. I wish I could do the things you do.

Crankshaft grinding is whole other ball game and way beyond my skill set.

The only difference between men and boys is the size and cost of their toys, Frank.
