Any of you guys who like to dally in metalwork looking for an upgrade? I was thinking of Purplev in particular. He might have to rearrange his shop again, though.

That’s about the size of the lathe that I had 40 years ago. I bought it for $200.00 and got into phase converting to make it run.

It was a great lathe until I rolled the trailer in the medium of the highway when moving from North St. Louis to South St. Louis.

The insurance company paid for it so I gave it away when moving from South St. Louis to New Jersey. (I didn’t want to move it again)

Purp, Turn the sheet goods to make cannon wheels. It is big enough to do the barrel too ;-)
