A New Toy
Post date: Jul 2, 2013 2:10:49 PM
I've just managed to get myself an old-style Myford fixed steady, and I've adapted it to fit my antiquated Faircut. This means that all of a sudden I can work on the ends of much longer sections of material...I tried it out by facing the ends of some 1" brass tube, and it is marvellous! Combined with the newly-functional 4-jaw chuck, all of a sudden my little lathe is looking a lot more capable...
I'm fairly sure normal people don't get excited about this sort of thing.
