my small lathe was losing tolerances.. moving.. wimpy... and scary when it would bite into a nice piece of wood...
luckily, my friend RLL is moving and jumped at the chance to let me "house" his lathe while they move... of course, he also brings all sorts of other things over for me as well.. (look for some free power transformers in the near future under the title "free junk"...)...
so practice time... I need to deliver a few EM Electrodynamic 650 compression drivers... time to learn a new lathe... it went well... some pictures below...
some ballast (now rather dusty):
