    Nice!

    I'm thinking of a way to make the rubber way scrapers. They charge 300$ for them at Storebro Service....

    Hmmm.. I don't think I need to replace mine actually.
    But wouldn't this be simple enough to make out of rubber sheet of approximately correct thickness?
    Using a Vee-block or similar to act as a template?

    If some bits of rubber are $300 ,how on earth much would something like a headstock gear be?

    That seems quite reasonable in comparison.

    Nice lathe! Never seen one over here (only 1000 km from Sweden..)

    Maybe it is an option to make the wipers with abrasive waterjet cutting? Last week I made some rubber washers to mount a machine on with the AWJ at work, worked good, nice surface quality of the cut.

    So, to get the thread back on track

    I finally got the jib crane welded up and trail mounted this weekend. Everything fit as planned, so the next step will be painting (oh the horror)... Will probable take som time before that happens..

    Last night I re-mounted the motor, and today I bought new electrical parts (push buttons, contactor and so on).
    Hopefully I will be able to make the first test run this weekend..
    After the electrical work is done, the lathe can finally be moved in to its new spot (if only it fits through the door. That will be a tight fit)

    Pictures to come...
