Well, I failed to show the 1887 lathe which produced the !st Bowl . . . my bad. Thanks for asking. Here is the bowl as it was hollowed out and waiting to have the bottom turned.
This is the lathe after rebuilding. I had a rolling steel stand made for it (she who must be obeyed” still wants to park in “our” garage!) and then had to add a fold down stand-on platform so that I wasn’t working near my chin!! I also added the 1920’s motor and a motor mount platform. The box below was made as storage for all the miscellaneous pieces, chucks, gouges, etc.
A fun rebuild project and a great “old iron” addition to my workshop! It will look good if it just sits in a corner of the new workshop
