I trust that everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend!
Having just enjoyed three whole days off from work, I had thought that some substantial progress would have been made on the lathe stand build.
This was not to be.
A garage sale on Saturday, and loads of geek-family activities kept shop time to a minimum.
Between all the revelries, small segments of time were found to add a few minor additions to the project, notwithstanding.
Holes were bored in the top and mounting bolts for the machine were installed:
Frame cross pieces were cut and installed. These are for attaching the work top onto the frame:
At this point in construction, the frame was carried up the fourteen-step stairway from the basement annex, maneuvered through the tricky door configuration at the top of the stairs, and placed in the garage, where the lathe would ultimately be used.
It was deemed that, had any more pieces been added to the frame at this point, it would have become too unwieldy for the handsawgeek to move upstairs without assistance from a kind-hearted neighbor.
As Popeye once said, “I knows me limic-a-tay-shkins!”
Words to live by.
Something is very odd about sawdustike today……
Until next time, and thanks for reading……
