    That is a nice piece of machinery. Now you can relax and go Bowling.

    Yes I know, "That's a doctor Bradley joke." When they were school kids, that is what Glenn and all of his friends would have said so I added it for your amusement.

    Have fun with it. I'll bet it brings you hours of pleasure.

    Enjoy,

    I decided to 'warm up' by making some icicle ornaments... so far I'm 0-2. Where are my bowling shoes?

    That is a great little lathe. Was one my first lathes but gave it to my nephew so he could get into turning. Still using it to make pens he sells to classmates. Good little lathe.
