Good Evening All,
I am now the proud owner of a lathe. Can not wait to be able to post some kind of project that I make on it. BUT, first I have some other fun to deal with, the lathe is a 1970’s 12” Craftsman that i purchased off of someone on Craigslist. I tested it all out and it worked fine, however it was mounted to a very heavy table and since I have a basement shop I decided to remove it from the table before trying to get it down stairs. For beeing mounted to the same piece for 30+ years it was a quick removal, now the trick is to get the table (which is still pretty heavy) downstairs and remount the lathe on to it and get it all working just as nicely again.
I am thinking also of sprucing up the table a bit and doing some work on it. So more blogs are to come on this subject. In the meantime here is my prize as it looked before taking it off the table.
I am sure I will have multiple questions as I head down this new woodworking path so thank you in advance for the answers that I know I can count on getting.
