    New to me toy

    Long story short. I swapped my small General back to it's original owner for this one. He bought this new in 2008.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Holy cow! That is one nice lathe and stand. Great trade. Reminder to myself, be careful trading with Steve!

    Amazing! Hey, would you like to swap that for my 42" Central lathe?
    Cheers,

    Hey, it was his idea. He did retain visitation rights

    I have been forced to move everything in the whole shop because of it. Actually for the better I believe.
