I bought my lathe in January of 2007 to go along with an ancient Clausing mill I'd had for years. It's the best toy I ever bought myself. Before I purchased my lathe, I spent a lot of time looking around the internet at other web sites, convincing myself that it was what I wanted to do. As this site develops I hope to give some of those guys credit, and provide links to their sites. There's a wealth of information out there for the home machinist provided by a bunch of very generous guys who took the time to publish it. My hat's off to them.

 My blog, Smitty's 9x20 Lathe  has more information on my projects. The latest project was a two cylinder Simplex steam engine built from plans from Workbench Minatures. You can see the engine on my projects page.
