    My 2 new toys

    Picked the lathe up on CL/ for $145 . The drill press I got for doing a small handicap ramp.

    Congrats, John. I used to have an earlier version of that drill press, and it worked well for me. And I've heard good things about that Steel City lathe, too.

    Thanks all. Going to pickup the bed ext for the lathe. Which will turn it to 39 1/2". This will be my first use of a lathe.
