    From personal experience, it is sometimes better to miss a project lathe over spending more for one that's ready to go. My first lathe was never right and I didn't have another lathe to make the...

    Yeah, that's a good way to put it. There are gibs on the carriage itself so you can tweak how tight the carriage fits to the ways. I've had mine completely apart. The model number tells you if it has...

    I consider it a decent price if it's in cleanable shape. You can still buy parts for them. Its a light duty lathe though. Southbendy or something in that line. It's better than your typical new...

    My advice is come up with a list of features you have to have and want to avoid, then use this list to filter out the potential lathes you might want to buy. My list is:

    1 - No flat belts
    2 -...

    I had a paid Photobucket account. Initially it was great. Post pictures, link pictures. Then they changed it to require flash to access the images. I left before they became more heavy handed. I...

    After getting burned by Photobucket, I don't trust any of these guys. What you really should say is "they don't mess with your photos at this time" because at one point Photobucket didn't mess with...

    Age of a Brown and Sharpe Micrometer #45

    I just picked up what looks like an unused B&S #45 micrometer. The case it came in has no wear, neither does the device itself. I failed trying to research what year ranges they made these. I know...

    I have a free account with Amazon AWS. They have something called S3 for storing files, any kind of files. I keep backups and images there. Once you set the image to be "Public" you can share them...

    The arm that's bolted to the back with the upper pulley probably isn't stock. I had the exact same arm with a different wide pulley on my Hardinge. I tracked it down to a company in PA I believe from...

    This is what you do when your wife says "sell it" and you don't want to. You price it high and then later on tell the wife "I tried". There's a Galk mill near me that's been for sale for years now...

    The current Gits units seem to be Chinese crap. I installed some new ones on my Logan. The springs stick out and stab me ever time I use them.

    I was thinking about making some out of aluminum.

    A doctor told my sister in law that all old people are depressed. It's just the nature of the beast. I don't necessarily agree but there's probably something to it.

    I know it's probably sacrilege but I swap out all the square heads to allens on my gear. I toss them all into a bag I keep near the lathe in case a purist buys it from me some day.
