This is where I’m at today! I’ve pretty much taken everything apart so I could paint. I did forget to mention that this lathe has the step pulley, not the variable speed (wish it was VS). I had some trouble taking the tool rest apart...
I picked up a 1967 Powermatic 45 lathe that I hope to restore. It wasn’t in the best of shape, but there where no cracks in the casting, it ran and I only paid $200 for it. Included in that, there was about 6 face plates, four sets of chea...
