    I used a light gray epoxy primer on the bed and legs. I'm powder coating all the small stuff like the apron and carriage.

    Believe it or not, I haven't been slacking. Tail stock, follow rest, and steady rest have been disassembled, stripped, and painted. Long way to go though. Cross slide and saddle are next up.

    Tail stock and rests shown with cross slide already removed.

    Slowly but surely. Cross slide is finished. However, I may have put the cross slide on backwards. Time to hit Google and Wade8a.com.

    Cross slide is on correctly. Center front side lower edge of the casting has an arch to clear the feed dial. Rear side lower edge center does not have an arch, the rear surface has two (or more) holes for mounting a taper attachment, and the rear top surface has a locking bolt on the center line.

    Thanks! After trying a few approaches I realized I physically can't put it on wrong. Really beginning to appreciate this lathe's design. Almost can't put it together incorrectly.
    But, Inventor, you knew that already.
