My brother and I were given an older Craftsman lathe a while back that needed some restoration and tlc. This was a fun project to restore; it included removing all the rust and paint, repainting, cleaning up and building a new counter top for (oak). It will be a fun tool to use as it is our first lathe… we are looking forward to using it! Many thanks to Mr. Unix for his help in this restoration. Thanks for Looking! DMiller and JMillerWoodworks
