    Default Pimp my lathe!

    People don't always build guns, sometimes they build/fix/restore tools so they can build guns lol!

    I am almost done with this (a year I guess...lost track)

    It all started when I found a SB heavy 10 at a cheap enough price I could afford so I brought it home.

    I will spare you the details of a 60+ page thread on a different forum, guys are still making fun of me about that!

    Anyways, here is what I started with and here is where I am now after building a bench for it, taking it apart and using an electrolysis tank to remove rust and converting it to a DC drive.

    That's a sweet looking lathe Mike.....makes me think about straying from kaki and dark machinery gray on the clausing. A few of it's parts are going in the derust tank once it warms up a bit.

    I took a year of machine shop back in 1970 as a high school student attending a trade school for half a day. I could work that machine.

    Wow, that is one sexy looking piece of iron! I would pay the pimp for one day worth of fun time with it since you are pimping it out XD
    The color choices really kick it up the notch ladder. Great Job.

    Nice! The only thing that equals gun porn is machine porn. And those are some sexy pictures!
