Sorry, I found it difficult to post these pictures in logical order. The Motor is a 1/2 horsepower craftsman. You can see the tool rests on the new table. You can see some before and afters.





I will have some before and after pictures. The particle board that is nasty is the old top that came with it. The Table originally had no bottom shelf. I am attaching a pull out drawer for the tools on that shelf and it can also hold sand bags to sturdy it when turning big stock. The tools come with it. I began cleaning them. It comes with a book and with an extension cord and switch 120v.

Chisels:
1” skew
left skew
Right Skew
3/4 Round Nose
1/4 Paring
Round
1/2 Gouge
1/4 Gouge
1/2 Round Scraper
1/8 Paring
1/2 Skew
I think I missed one or two…count the picture

Very nice. Just out of curiosity, what are you asking?

I have it on Craigs for $300, but I really just want 250. I am starting to like it more and more as I continue to fix it up for a buyer. I just don’t see myself getting into turning right now, and the money could be used better at home (than sitting in the garage). I imagine though that turning is a relatively quiet and meditative process, besides the chips and dust flying at you.
