    It's in

    The lathe is up and running.

    For the most part I was able to get the 3520 down in the basement and set up by myself. I had a problem aligning the headstock because of the locking mechanism, so my 15 year old daughter lent a hand.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I'm ready for a nap.

    Congrats, Ron. Sounds like you beat Ken and me on getting yours powered up. I think we're all in for a treat.

    Oh, and sorry to hear your camera's broken.

    Ron, you are going to have to get matching shirts

    Looks great, but heavy, must have been quite the lug downstairs!

    Glad you got it all set up, now get it dirty!
