Hey Serge, heres a picture of my '62 lathe. You said"Nothing like seeing it."!! I say "Nothing like playing with it!" Regards,BB
I started with a lathe like that some 20 years ago.It`s a good lathe and I used mine for about 2 years then I was offered a deal I could not turn down,and sold it to a cabinet maker.When you turn on the outboard side,just make sure the bench is well anchored down.All the best with your turning, trubs.
I saw that lathe before. According to the switch, I believe it's a Craftsman. I think several years ago I saw the same model under the name Mastercraft.
When using it, I hope you don,t bend over to pick you turning tools behind the lathe. That would be hazardous!
Thanks again for some good advise,guys! The bench is anchored to the wall by a ledger board,so its pretty solid. And I'll make a better place for the tools, Serge! Regards'BB
