    Hi Al,

    I too, would be interested in the metal spinning. When I got my Delta Double Duty lathe it came with a compound slide which is used in metal turning. Evidently the previous user of this setup used it primarily for metal turning. Even the pulley system is setup for slow turning.

    By the way, I have a lot of metal rod that was his stock and in it are several octagonal bars of brass. Could you ask your friend what that would have been used for?
    Regards,
    Bill Antonacchio

    OK here are few pics for you. Mind you this basment is only 20x20 at best and there are several large lathe shoe horned in here.




    And here is the link to see the rest of them. There a total of 8 lathe,3bs,1 mortiser,3 surface grinders,ts and other odd ball items. Will get pics of the other shops later.Oh and the pics start as you walk in and turn rigth and go around the shop that way.
