Nothing like making it yourself. I notice the tool rest is exactly the same as mine.Did you break the cast iron original too?

I still use the cast tool rest at times. I wanted something a bit longer so I went to HomeDepot and bought some round stock and welded a new tool rest up. My son-in-law milled me a 2” riser for the head stock. He is working on a riser for the tail stock also. I’ll post pictures when I install the risers.

Nicely done. I want to turn a handwheel for mine but I’ll add a crank handle to make it easier.
