Any day you get free tools is a good day. The lathe is interesting. The question is how do you feel about them.

Thanks for looking in and commenting guys. Dave, I am really happy to have this machine lathe. It took considerable effort to transport it 90 miles, make a bench for it, lift it (400 lbs) on to the bench, and then mount the 150 lbs of motor, pully and drove sheaves to the wall, so yes, I was very enthusiastic about this. What am I going to make with it? Don’t exactly know, but the first project will be a centering drill jig for 1/2” doweling for my invisible hinge.

Feel really lucky. Been watching YouTube videos on operation of the machine. First one scared the crap out of me..basically the guy started off the video with “If you screw up even slightly, this machine will kill you, if it doesn’t you will most likely br missing your scalp, a finger, or your teeth,” Lovely..just what I wanted to hear :(

Good luck with it Jerry. Be careful with those exposed belts, it make me nervous just looking at them. LOL

Thanks Dave

You and me both! I’m thinking of building a robotic arm anchored to the floor in front of the lathe so I don’t have to get anywhere near it. Another not so great thing is that it sounds like the house is coming down when it’s running!!!

The original setup was a bracket that hung the motor off the back, but I guess it got lost or broken sometime in the last 86 years…
