    Tool post ground bearing face. Came out pretty decent.

    Hopefully runs true to machine centerline now

    Do you scrape one surface for bearing?

    As mentioned above, the male bearing (the one on the back of the chuck) will be scraped to match the female bearing (the one that's been ground)

    Got some concrete blocks from work. These are from when they install new machines, ect

    Set 4 of them out to set the container on.

    Also found a broken shaft on 1175, so gotta order a new one with the brake lining or make a new shaft and install the replacement friction I bought.

    Watch the auctions for some 360* screw in/bolt on swivel clevises. I put them on everything now, forklift, gantry, cherry picker, machine attachments and screwed them in to the front of my non loader tractors for pulling stuff. I bought a pile of (30) from 3/8”-1” for under $80. When going over the top and working by yourself, they work great for putting machines and tractor implements exactly where you want them.

    I dont like working on small forklifts, or doing electrical work.

    But was doing that yesterday after getting out of work early.

    Wiring issue burned out key switch and coil on this forklift. So going back with new heavier gage wires.

    Starts with a key again, but gonna replace old alternator that uses external voltage regulator with one thats internal and by pass all the old rotten bad wires

    Never underestimate the value of just plain removing rotten parts that aren't doing anything anymore, and replacing rotten parts that are sort of functioning.

    Another one headed out. Hate to see it go, but need space.


    Im delivering this lathe to the guy that bought it. Left work early, jacked it up, put it on skates, used the winch on the truck to pull it forward. Then grabbed it with the Hyster

    Had a tire blow out on me last time I used the trailer. Put the new tire on and drove around the corner to have the trailer point the other way. Noticed a tire blow again.

    And all 3 of the other old tires were splitting or blowing the sidewall out.....

    So I get to go to Discount Tire in the morning and buy 3 new tires.

    Batteries were weak on the truck, so also had to buy new truck batteries. Been an expensive weekend so far. Selling the lathe is just gonna pay for the crap I had to buy to move it lol.

    Look on the bright side.

    If you had never owned that lathe at all?

    You would still have s**t tires and flat batteries.

    Now you don't.

    Now.. as to whether you would have needed the truck or trailer....

    Yesterday was a long day. While I wasn't overloaded, I drove slow and ended up spending all day in the truck.

    On the way back I picked up some abandoned rail road ties. I like to chainsaw them into 18"-24" blocks, they work amazing for machinery moving and working on heavy equipment.


    Today going to try and plan a better shop layout and start re organizing some crap.

    Those are some good looking ties for being abandoned.

    Dug these 50' roof trusses out of the pasture since it was semi dry.

    Maybe do what I keep threatening to do and start another building in the spring
