I've come to really relish the zen of machine restoration. When creative work seems too daunting there is always comfort in simply fixing and cleaning. I picked up this lathe about a year ago, but only this week found the time to really dial it in. New drive belt, rebuilt variable speed mechanism, new bearing in tailstock, de-rust, de-grease, and paint. Working on some custom tooling for it now to expand my tiny parts capabilities.
