Have been slowly sorting the lathe out and getting some practice in over the past few months. Dirty side of the garage now looks like this
Grinder and belt sander, pillar drill and lathe with new tool storage for cutting tools and accessories.
Fitted a DRO, task lighting and some storage for toolholders, lubricants and other useful stuff
Got a 3D printer and a bunch of hand tools to play with
Want a mill but can't afford one (yet) so I got a milling slide and machine vice for the lathe. This, along with a collet chuck and some milling cutters will let me get on with some of the more complicated bits for the frame jig build. Made the adaptor plate (the blue thing) from a piece of O1 tool steel.
Also made a start on some tube blocks. Totally not worth the time taken to make them, but satisfying to be able to do it all myself.
